Abstract

Authors tend to be dwellers of the mind and wanderers of the world. And Amitav Ghosh certainly fills both boxes. In an article in The Atlantic, Maria Popova quotes American author E.B. White had said it best in 1969: “One role of the writer today is to sound the alarm.  The environment is disintegrating, the hour is late and not much is being done. Instead of carting rocks from the moon we should be carting the faeces out of Lake Erieâ€. The sixty year old Ghosh is sounding the alarm, loud and clear with his recent book The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable.
