This chapter introduces Amitav Ghosh, an Indian author who became one of the central figures to emerge from the English literary field after the success of Salman Rushdie's Midnight Children. The first section of the chapter presents some background information about Ghost, before focusing on his occupation as a writer. It also describes Calcutta and studies his six major works, all of which reflect many of the preoccupations that have been marshalled under the title of ‘postmodernism’. The final part of the chapter addresses the central argument addressed in this book.
