Tahmina Anam's A Golden Age and The Good Muslim (coming of age trilogy that parallels the birth of Bangladesh). The Bradt Guide is the best for domestic travel. Other books by Bengali Indian authors (Amitav Ghosh) can give you a good idea of what the culture and history is like. BBC, the Economist, and AlJazeera have good coverage of current events. - Aug 2013
