Town Hall Seattle says
Bestselling author Amitav Ghosh’s popular Ibis Trilogy reimagines the 19th-century war on drugs for a result that’s highly readable and, by all accounts, “extraordinary.” Following in the footsteps of Sea of Poppies (the first book, shortlisted for the 2008 Man Booker prize) and River of Smoke, Flood of Fire is the final novel in this masterful trilogy. Ghosh’s latest book depicts the explosive events leading up to the first opium war (1839-42) and how the spread of addiction fueled the flame. He’ll share inspirations behind the book, read some favorite excerpts, and explore the vast influence the opium trade had on the rest of the world–from the average Asian citizen, to cross-continental migration patterns and international relations.
