9788184003567: Delhi; Mostly Harmless

About the Book: Delhi: Mostly Harmless A clever and insightful take on Delhi as a 21st-century metropolis through the eyes of a young PhD student '. nobody who lives there, nobody at all, has much good to say about Delhi. Along with Milton Keynes, Detroit and Purgatory, Delhi is one of the worlds great unloved destinations. So when Elizabeth Chatterjee makes her way from the cool hum of Oxford to the demented June heat of heat of Delhi to research her PhD, she find herself both baffled and curious about the je ne sais quoi of this city of 'graveyards and tombstones. As flanur and sagacious resident, Liz takes us through the serpentine power structures, the idyll, the bullshit- peeling layer after layer of the citys skin to reveal its aspirations, its insecurity, its charm and finally its urban dissonance. Uncannily perceptive, predictive, and hysterical, Delhi Mostly Harmless puts a firm finger on the electric pulse of Delhi. About the Author: Elizabeth Chatterjee Born and raised in Yorkshire, Liz Chatterjee is a perpetual student. She graduated with a double first in History from Merton College, Oxford, before moving on to study contemporary Indian politics. Following brief stints working with Unicef and Oxfam, she is currently writing a doctorate on Indian energy policy. In 2008, she was elected a Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, where she lives when not in Delhi. Reviews 'Both wry and raucous. A good eye and ear and nose for the absurd and the flatulent- Sam Miller
