In 1999, Amit Chaudhuri moved back to Calcutta, the city in which he was born. It was a place he had loved in his youth and the place he had made his name writing about. But upon his return he discovered that the Calcutta of his imagination had receded and another had taken its place. Lyrical, observant and profound, 'Calcutta' is a personal account of two years (2009-2011) spent in one of the least known - yet greatest - cities of our time.
