The first novel in the Ibis trilogy, Amitav Ghosh’s stunning saga begins with the tumultuous voyage of an old slave ship, the Ibis, across the Indian Ocean to fight in the Opium Wars. The crew is a motley group of sailors, stowaways, coolies, and convicts. Evocative, stunning, and adventurous–this incredible series of novels is not to be missed.
