Author Amitov Ghosh and Sandip Roy

Amitav Ghosh’s newest novel Gun Island is a story about both two of his great themes - migration and climate.

In a way Gun Island a book of uncanny events, goddess and king cobras and an armada of seabirds is a wake up call in a time of terrible climate anxiety.
Because we all remember where we were when 9/11 happened. Will we be able to remember where we were when the Arctic ice shelf collapsed?
