Description

About the Book :

'A fascinating exploration of my favourite city, full of insider knowledge and sharp insights' – Salman Rushdie

A place of spectacle and ruin, Mumbai exemplifies the cosmopolitan metropolis. It is not just a big city but also a soaring imagination of modern urban life. Millions from India and beyond, of different ethnicities, languages, and religions, have washed up on its shores, bringing with them their desires and ambitions. Mumbai Fables explores the mythic inner life of this legendary city as visualized by its inhabitants, journalists, planners, writers, artists, film-makers and political activists. In this remarkable cultural history of one of the world's most important urban centres, Gyan Prakash unearths the stories behind its fabulous history, viewing Mumbai through its turning points and kaleidoscopic ideas, comicbook heroes and famous scandals.

Shedding light on the city's past and present; Mumbai Fables offers an unparalleled look at this extraordinary metropolis.
