An interview with the last speaker of a language. A chronicle of the final seven days of a town that is about to be razed to the ground by an invading army. The lonely voyage of an elephant from Kerala to a princess's palace in Morocco. A fabled cook who flavours his food with precious stones. A coterie of international diplomats trapped in near-Earth orbit. Tharoor's tales emerge from a tradition that includes the creators of the Arabian Nights, Italo Calvino, Jorge Luis Borges and Angela Carter.
