Read full description of the books Delirious Delhi: Inside India's Incredible Capital:When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave Prager and his wife, Jenny, moved to a city of sixteen million people--with seemingly twice as many honking horns. Living and working in Delhi, the couple wrote about their travails and discoveries on their popular blog Our Delhi Struggle. This book, all new, is Dave's top-to-bottom account of a megacity he describes as simultaneously ecstatic, hallucinatory, feverish, and hugely energizing. Weaving together useful observations and hilarious anecdotes, he covers what you need to know to enjoy the city and discover its splendors: its sprawling layout, some favorite sites, the food, the markets, and the challenges of living in or visiting a city that presents every human extreme at once. Among his revelations: secrets that every Delhiite knows, including the key phrase for successfully negotiating with any shopkeeper; the most fascinating neighborhoods, and the trendiest; the realities behind common stereotypes; tips for enjoying street food and finding hidden restaurants, as well as navigating the transportation system; and the nuances of gestures like the famous Indian head bobble. Delirious Delhi is at once tribute to a great world city and an invitation to explore. Read it, and you'll want to book the next flight!
Read information about the authorDave Prager was a typical copywriter working at a typical Madison Avenue advertising agency until fate (and human resources) offered the opportunity of a lifetime: to spend a year-and-a-half working at the agency’s office in Gurgaon.
Well, the opportunity of his lifetime, anyway. While many Americans would recoil with visions of mosquito Armageddon and monkey pickpockets, Dave and Jenny leaped to spend the next 18 months immersed in the cuisine of their dreams.
Dave and Jenny lived in Brooklyn, New York, for eight years prior to their shift in Delhi. They met in 1998 and married in 2005. After leaving India, they spent a year in Singapore before returning to the States to start a family. They currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area. Their daughter Georgiana is not quite old enough to appreciate Indian food yet, but she’ll certainly be eating baingan bharta long before the rest of her classmates.
