"A lyrical homage to India's holiest, moodiest, foulest river... Trojanow is the perfect mix of insider and outsider. A Hindi speaker, he can also stand back and see what makes India tick... It is a treasure of a book, a must-have for anyone spending time on the Ganges and wanting to get to know her better."--Susan Elderkin "Financial Times"
