Harry Matthews travels around India, in this entertaining travelogue. With a sense of irony and an eye for the unusual, he brings India and its people to life. A vivid feat of re-imagining a youthful rite of passage. Beautifully Illustrated throughout with 75 Watercolour illustrations by the author.
The extreme ease with which the author gets on with Indians, the zest
of their lives, his openness to them, transcends fellow feeling. The book
gives explanations, where necessary, in footnotes to elucidate and
inform the reader. - Ruth Bidgood, Poet
Beautifully illustrated - Simon Calder, Travel Journalist
