A brilliant, uncategorizable book: part memoir and travelogue of Ghosh's time in Egypt as an anthropology doctoral student, part historical investigation of a 12th century family whose letters he finds in the archives. The two time periods and casts of characters comment on each other in unexpected ways, and it's hard not to be moved by the ways people reach out to each other across cultural chasms and eras.
