William Dalrymple presents the first authoritative history of the Koh-i-Noor, arguably the most mythologised jewel in the world. Challenging the accepted narrative, Dalrymple tells the story behind what became the controversial centrepiece of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother’s crown. Masterly, powerful and erudite, this is history at its most compelling and invigorating.

William Dalrymple has won multiple awards for his work, and is as brilliant a wordsmith as he is a historian. He is currently based near Delhi, where he lives with his family on a farm – so catch him while he’s in this country for what promises to be a rare and fascinating evening.
