Delirious Delhi: Inside India's Incredible Capital | [Dave Prager]

Delirious Delhi: Inside India's Incredible Capital

Delhi exists in a kind of quantum state: In Delhi, all things are true at once. When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave and Jenny moved to a city of 16 million people and, seemingly, twice that many horns honking at once. Delirious Delhi depicts India's capital as the two experienced it, from office life in the rising tech hubs to the traffic jam philosophy that keeps people sane in the gridlock leading to them. With only their sense of humour as their guide, Dave and Jenny set out to explore a city in which ancient stone monuments compete with glass-clad shopping malls to define the landscape.

Audible Editor Reviews

Dave Prager and his wife left Brooklyn to live as expats in India for 18 months, and Delirious Delhi is an account of their experiences there. Narrator Sanjiv Jhaveri is a master of subtle delivery, using small shifts in cadence and tone to express the couple's complicated relationship with India. While the audiobook is mostly a memoir about Prager's attempts to find a balance between the best and worst that India has to offer, such as periodically checking into a five-star hotel to take a respite from the poverty he saw around him, he also includes information that expats may find interesting or useful.

Publisher's Summary

Delhi exists in a kind of quantum state: In Delhi, all things are true at once. When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave and Jenny moved to a city of 16 million people and, seemingly, twice that many horns honking at once. Delirious Delhi depicts India's capital as the two experienced it, from office life in the rising tech hubs to the traffic jam philosophy that keeps people sane in the gridlock leading to them. With only their sense of humour as their guide, Dave and Jenny set out to explore a city in which ancient stone monuments compete with glass-clad shopping malls to define the landscape. What follows is a top-to-bottom snapshot of a city in the thick of loud and accelerating change. Anyone new to Delhi will have their understanding of it magnified by this book. And anyone who already knows Delhi will appreciate this candid tribute to a city that's everything to everyone at the same time.
