City of Djinns: A Year in Delhi

City of Djinns: A Year in Delhi
Title: City of Djinns: A Year in Delhi
Author:
Оценка: 5.0 of 5, readers votes - 1
Genre: history
Annotation:Sparkling with irrepressible wit, City of Djinns peels back the layers of Delhi's centuries-old history, revealing an extraordinary array of characters along the way-from eunuchs to descendants of great Moguls. With refreshingly open-minded curiosity, William Dalrymple explores the seven 'dead' cities of Delhi as well as the eighth city—today's Delhi. Underlying his quest is the legend of the djinns, fire-formed spirits that are said to assure the city's Phoenix-like regeneration no matter how many times it is destroyed. Entertaining, fascinating, and informative, City of Djinns is an irresistible blend of research and adventure.
