Reviews

"McPhee's book is a loving portrait of the former capital of India, its architecture that remembers its history while embracing its future, its residents that line the streets, selling goods, tailoring dresses, delivering cargo."-Nicole Crowder, The Washington Post--Nicole Crowder "The Washington Post "
" . . . awash in colors, textures, and architectural details as it sweeps through extravagant mansions and crumbling dwellings."-Jan Gardner, Boston Globe--Jan Gardner "Boston Globe "
