coming soon: Delirious Delhi!

Long-time readers of this site know that just before we left India, we inked a deal with HarperCollins India to write a full-length portrait of the city of Delhi.

This was not a reprint of the blog. Instead, this is a complete narrative examination of the city we tried so hard to understand. And even if you’ve read every page of this website, 90% of the book will be new to you.

Ladies and gentlemen, expats and locals, NRIs and Delhiites: the wait is finally over. Delirious Delhi will be published this in December — just in time for the 100th anniversary of the founding of New Delhi.

And this is what the cover will look like.

If that cover looks like a handpainted Bollywood poster, you’re right. It is. Can anyone name the movie Jenny and I are attempting to recreate with our pose?

I will have information about the publication date, release parties, and much more soon. In the meantime, please do three things:

  11. It’s rather a strange story in itself how a big publisher like HarperCollins is so eager to give even the kitsch writers like you guys write hogwash (Oh! the goras writing about Jama Masjid) but are unwilling to give even genuine newbie Indian writers a chance to pen something way more sensible than you’ll ever be able to write.
