The South China Morning Post, Hong Kong’s leading English newspaper and paper of record, reviewed my book.
- ‘[Otis] makes this key piece of colonial history and Indian journalism both vibrant and droll, which is no small task.’
- ‘Reads like fiction … Hicky’s Bengal Gazette remains a compelling read all the way through to its elegiac conclusion.’
The Financial Express reviewed my book: ‘Otis’ book comes at a time when the integrity of media is under the scanner the world over. The opposition that Hicky faced from the establishment in the 1700s still finds relevance today, and that’s one of the main reasons this book makes for enlightening reading.’
