Have you read any books by Indian authors?
One of the books I’m reading for my Master’s degree is IN AN ANTIQUE LAND by Amitav Ghosh. It was, admittedly, a little difficult getting acquainted with Ghosh’s writing style; this book is part historical fiction, part autobiographical travel/diary writing. Now that I’m about 200 pages in I’m amazed by how Ghosh weaves the narratives together; his own personal experiences in Egypt, and the parallel trajectory tracing the life of a 12th century slave. So far an excellent book that I can already recommend to anyone interested in ‘postcolonial’ narratives, particularly subversive anthropology and the idea of movement and migration. There’s also so much on language and culture; it’s fascinating ✌🏼Anyway, off I go to study!!
Hope you have a lovely Thursday! 🖤
