Description
In a coastline as long and diverse as India's, fish inhabit the heart of many worlds—food of course, but also culture, commerce, sport, history, and society. International journalist Samanth Subramanian journeyed along the edges of the peninsula, and here delivers a kaleidoscope of extraordinary stories. He chronicles the use of fish to treat asthmatics in Hyderabad; the preparation and the process of eating West Bengal's prized hilsa; the ancient art of building fishing boats in Gujarat; the fiery cuisine and the singular spirit of Kerala's toddy shops; the food and the lives of Mumbai's first people; the history of an old Catholic fishing community in Tamil Nadu; and the hunt for the world's fastest fish, near Goa.

"Witty, alert, and wonderfully idiosyncratic, Following Fish is quite simply the best travel book to come out of South Asia since Suketu Mehta's Maximum City."—William Dalrymple
