Dave Prager - Delirious Delhi


In conversation with Kamla Bhatt

When the Big Apple no longer felt big enough, Dave Prager and his wife Jenny Steeves moved to a city of sixteen million people-and, seemingly, twice that many horns honking at once.

Call them the New Delhi Yankees. In Delirious Delhi ($17.95) Dave takes readers through India's capital as he and Jenny experienced it: isolated, overwhelmed, and loving every minute of it. With 24 pages of color photos, this book offers hilarious anecdotes, astute observations, and attempted comprehension about what they encountered, ate, and stared at while stuck in traffic in this frantically expanding world capital. And in their telling, Delhi is truly delirious in every definition of the word: it's ecstatic, hallucinatory, mind-boggling, feverish, and vastly energizing-all at the same time.

Organized into twelve thematic chapters (like work-life, transportation, and food), Delirious Delhi helps newcomers orient themselves to this intense and amazing city, and it lets veterans see it through eyes that have never seen anything like it before. It's perfect for anyone who has lived in India, anyone who is moving there, or anyone who is planning a
visit.

Dave Prager was a typical copywriter working at a typical Madison Avenue advertising agency until fate (and human resources) offered the opportunity of a lifetime: to spend a year-and-a-half working at the agency’s office in Gurgaon.  While many Americans would recoil with visions of mosquito Armageddon and monkey pickpockets, Dave and Jenny leaped to spend the next 18 months immersed in the cuisine of their dreams. They currently live in the San Francisco Bay Area, where they’re anxiously awaiting their daughter Georgiana to be old enough to sit through a 20-hour flight to India.
