Delhi by Khushwant Singh - January Book Club Meeting

Travelling through time, space and history to ‘discover’ his beloved city, the narrator meets a myriad of people—poets and princes, saints and sultans, temptresses and traitors, emperors and eunuchs—who have shaped and endowed Delhi with its very special mystique… And as we accompany the narrator on his epic journey we find the city of emperors transformed and immortalized in our minds for ever.

    Really enjoyed the meetup yesterday - interesting book and always good to discuss with people who know WAY more about the subject than I do! I just spotted this on the Guardian website - may be of interest (available for the next couple of days, I think) http://www.theguardian.com/stage/interactive/2014/jan/10/live-stream-drawing-the-line-howard-brenton

    This might be a really silly question, but do I need to have read the book if I'd like to attend tomorrow? Only recently joined the group.

      AJ You can still come along if you have not read the book, but [spoiler alert!] you might find out the end! - seriously though you are most welcome as there are always a few who will not have yet read it or completed it.

      Thanks Peter, by the time I'd seen your reply I'd made plans. Hopefully next meetup!

    Paula I think your book would qualify. We will contact you after this next meetup when we have reviewed the books up for discussion this year.

    I'd love to visit you, but don't get to London much. Do you ever meet online?! (Skype, etc.)
    Is there any chance you'd be interested in an author visit when my book comes out, i.e. April onwards?!

    Wonderful book, I first read it almost 20 years ago and reread it again this Jan while on the trip to the Jaipur festival
