"Incendiary Circumstances": Reviews and Links

Amitav Ghosh's new book of essays, Incendiary Circumstances, is out. It has gotten a number of reviews:

Time Magazine (via Abhi @ Sepia Mutiny)
LA Times (via Indian Writing)
San Francisco Chronicle (via Indian Writing)
Washington Post

It's worth noting that a number of the essays in the new book can be found online for free:

Tsunami 1, Tsunami 2, and Tsunami 3.

"The Ghosts of Mrs. Gandhi" is on Ghosh's own website here.

A version of "No Greater Sorrow" is here.

"The Ghat of the Only World: Agha Shahid Ali in Brooklyn" is at The Nation.

And there may be others, but I don't want to discourage people from buying the book!
