Unerring Human Empathy

Here is my review of Amitav Ghosh’s River of Smoke (2011). “While the history of the Opium Wars has been written and will be undertaken in future, the novel succeeds in depicting the unremarkable lives of people like Bahram caught in the vortex of historical events. It is Ghosh’s unerring human empathy that makes the novel a worthwhile read.”
