  • Description
    ARE WE DERANGED? One of India's greatest writers, Amitav Ghosh, argues that future generations may well think so. How else can we explain our imaginative failure in the face of global warming? In this groundbreaking return to non-fiction, Ghosh examines our inability-at the level of literature, history and politics-to grasp the scale and violence of climate change. The climate crisis asks us to imagine other forms of human existence-a task to which fiction, Ghosh argues, is the best suited of all forms. The Great Derangement serves as a brilliant writer's summons to confront the most urgent task of our time. 'An absorbing narrative on the subject, the impact of which is getting closer with each passing day' HINDUSTAN TIMES '[A] broad-ranging and consistently stimulating indictment of our era . . . a bracing reminder that there is no more vital task for writers and artists than to clear the intellectual dead wood of a vulgarly boosterish age and create space for apocalyptic thinking-which may at least delay, if not avert, the catastrophes ahead' GUARDIAN

    Highly recommended

    If you have somehow always skipped any serious discussion on climate change, then this is the book for you. And if you think that why should anyone even bother to have a conversation on such a "scientific" topic when the issue is already handled too well, then this is a book that will help you feel less comfortable with that thought. If you have already formed opinions on the subject of climate change but never really discussed those in your social circles, then here is a book that will defin...

    Very Good

    This book is based on climate change. Author has beautifully described the causes and result of climate change in this book. The only thing with this book is that , here author has focused mostly on India and other Asian countries. If you want to read about the climate change in different parts of the world then this book is not sufficient. You can give it a try.

    Worth every penny

    I really enjoyed reading the book. It is a wakening call for all those who still deny the reality of climate change.
