Books About Kolkata

Simon Winchester's CalcuttaSimon Winchester’s Calcutta by Simon Winchester.

Simon Winchester reflects on his time living in Calcutta (now Kolkata), along with his son Rupert. The book features with extracts about by V.S. Naipaul, Paul Theroux, Rudyard Kipling, Mark Twain and others. This also had me wanting to visit the city after reading, which just goes to show that you don’t have to be flattering about a place to make it compelling.
