Description
Visiting India in the late 1950s, the author of Christ Stopped at Eboli documented a nation still in the first throes of independence and modernity. A painter and doctor by vocation, Carlo Levi renders his sensory and cultural experience of India with great precision in these 14 essays, which include his interview with Jawaharlal Nehru, his tour of a tent city at a political convention, an account of the lives of Christian fishermen, a spectacular evocation of New Delhi's bustling streets, and his meeting with a Hindu nationalist party.
