Reviews

"Brilliantly done...A monumental tribute to the pain and glory of an earlier era of globalization...There will be more, undoubtedly, when the final installment of the Ibis trilogy arrives. I can hardly bear to wait." --The Washington Post

"Gripping...Ghosh has made humanely clear the cold cynicism of the Opium Wars." --Richard Eder, The Boston Globe

"Ghosh continues to amaze. Few authors since Melville and Joyce have excelled at both rambunctious, rangy linguistic play and deeply and lovingly observed human insight like this." --Minneapolis Star Tribune

"Masterful...River of Smoke is a wonderful mixture of people, places, and story that captures a moment in history like an insect snared in amber." --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Wonderful...[Gosh] is creating one of the best historical narratives in recent memory." --Time Out (New York)
