This beautiful copy of "River of Smoke" has been SIGNED by Amitav Ghosh on the title page! Marked as being for sale in India, Nepal, Bangladesh and Bhutan only. On the grand scale of a historical epic, "River of Smoke" follows its storm-tossed characters to the crowded harbours of China. There, ships from Europe and India exchange their cargoes of opium for boxes of tea, silk, porcelain and silver. All struggle to cope with their losses --- and, for some, unimaginable freedoms --- in the alleys and crowded waterways of nineteenth-century Canton. As trnansporting and mesmerizing as an opiate-induced dream, "River of Smoke", book two in Amitav Ghosh's Ibis Trilogy, will be heralded as a masterpiece of twenty-first-century literature. The small pen marking on the back cover covered the original price.
