Combining shrewd observations with painstaking historical research, Ghosh serves up skeptics and holy men, merchants and sorcerers. Some of these figures are real, some only imagined, but all emerge as vividly as the characters in a great novel. In an Antique Land is an inspired work that transcends genres as deftly as it does eras, weaving an entrancing and intoxicating spell.

This book contains 2 stories of the Middle East and India: a coming of age story of a young, modern Hindu scholar living among Moslems, and a story of the travels of a medieval Jewish merchant living among Moslems and Hindus. Each story is engaging, but the connection between them is tenuous. Ghosh tries to draw comparisons between his experiences and those of his medieval subject, but they are unconvincing.
