3.8/5 Goodreads

In an Antique Land is a subversive history in the guise of a traveller's tale. Bursting with anecdote and exuberant detail, it offers a magical, intimate biography of the private life of a country, Egypt, from the Crusades to Operation Desert Storm.

"Ghosh is an engagingly, humble and receptive traveller... a refreshing reversal of the usual power relationship between the observing (European) travel writer and his indigenous subjects" - Guardian
"Ghosh's book is extraordinary: a travel book that reaches back into the twelfth century as it touches on the dilemmas of our own time" - Sunday Times
"A rich and satisfying journey" - The Times
