Dealer Notes
First edition. The Age of Kali was Dalrymple’s fourth book (and his second on India), and is a volume of essays inspired by the author’s travels through the Indian subcontinent during a ten-year period. In these essays, Dalrymple views contemporary India in the light of its history and culture, and the French edition (L’âge de Kali, 2004) won the Prix d’Astrolabe in 2005.

The cover design and illustrations are by Dalrymple’s wife, the artist Olivia Fraser.
