Bombay-London-New york is a way of measuring the distances that people and books travel. When Amitava Kumar left Patna, India, he envisioned himself as an up-and-coming citizen of the world, leaving behind the confines of Indian traditions. Yet like the wave of exiles that preceded him, he found that once we leave our past, we are defined by it. Circling the three capitals of the Indain diaspora, Bombay-London-New York touches on the themes of abandonment, nostalgia, and exile that have powered some of the most prominent writers to have written about India-Naipaul Rushdie, Roy, and Kureishi, as well as E.M. Forster and even Mahatma Gandhi. With resonant, poetic language and a storyteller`s sensibility, Kumar explores their work through the lens of his own life as an immigrant and writer.
