A road less travelled

New Chapters


Ace Indian cricketer Rahul Dravid and social historian Ramachandra Guha would be in conversation with the author at the launch of the book. This book shows us an America, as refracted, through the eye of an Indian who is critical but not intolerant, understanding but not starry-eyed.

From gawking at wall murals by German World War II POWs in Texas to getting to know the Bikers for Christ at the annual bike carnival in Sturgis, from charting the history of immigrant Icelanders to driving a fire truck in a quiet mountain town, the author travels American roads, discovering old cultures and new concerns in one of the most revered and reviled nations in the world today.

The author, Dilip D'Douza, explores valuable lessons for thoughtful readers everywhere and searches for meaning and nuance in ideas of patriotism and being liberal. This book is passionate and perceptive, emphathetic and explores the importance of what it means to belong, wherever you are. The launch will be held at 6.30 pm.
