In Old Delhi - New York Personal Views, C.S.H. Jhabvala brings his wholly original, personal vision to both cities - Delhi, with its crumbling stones preserved among the explosions of new technologies; New York, with yesterday's marvels of modernity trumped by today's bigger and more astonishing ones. He has the shrewd, sharp, critical and deeply affectionate eye of someone entirely familiar with both places through years of living in them. Combining to a superb degree the talents of an artist and an architect, he is as wittily disrespecful in his visual observation as in the accompanying text. This book is on many levels a uniquely delightful and historically valuable record of two wholly different cities - shown here to be complex and exciting, and each in its own way paradoxically beautiful. Printed Pages: 108.
