From the author of the international bestseller and reading-group favorite The Glass Palace, The Hungry Tide is a novel of adventure and romance set in the exotic Sundarbans, the treacherous islands in the Bay of Bengal where isolated inhabitants live in constant fear of the drowning tides and man-eating tigers. When a headstrong, young American marine biologist, the daughter of Bengali immigrants, arrives to study a rare species of river dolphin, she enlists the aid of a local fisherman and a translator. Their fates on the waterways will be determined by the forces of nature and human folly. With this lush landscape as backdrop, Amitav Ghosh tells both an intimate story of selfdiscovery and an epic story of the clash between civilization and theenvironment.
