Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2008 ‘Riveting … [Ghosh] has gone from the highly readable to the unputdownable’—Khushwant Singh, Hindustan Times
A motley array of sailors and stowaways, coolies and convicts is sailing down the Hooghly aboard the Ibis on its way to Mauritius. As they journey across the Indian Ocean old family ties
are washed away, and they begin to view themselves as jahajbhais or ship brothers who will build new lives for themselves in the remote islands where they are being taken. A stunningly
vibrant and intensely human work, Sea of Poppies, the first book in the Ibis trilogy confirms Amitav Ghosh’s reputation as a master storyteller.
