About this title

Synopsis:

What makes Mumbai "MUMBAI" is its people. With a diverse population influx each minute, every person here is a story by themselves. Along with being a personal account, each of them belongs to a collective narrative, falling into the compartments of the city's history. People Called Mumbai is a collection of 55 such stories, cutting across geography and from a wide cross-section of society, detailed with snippets in the hope of providing a re-reading of the city. The book dives into a sea of people, surfacing with wonderful tales; A photographer at Juhu Chowpatty who doubles up as a lifeguard, a businessman dealing in beads in Bhuleshwar who came to the city to fulfil his dreams, a stranded tourist now driving horse carriages, a Bollywood duplicate, a migrant who runs the city's only Tibetan restaurant, and many more. We often zoom past people, landmarks, places, with little thought that they could hold within them beautiful accounts of their lives. Pausing, listening and reflecting, People Called Mumbai is a compilation of many such unforgettable accounts.

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
