9780091899226: Yoga School Dropout

A sharply funny travelogue from a fantastic new writer. Lucy Edge tells the story of her personal quest for serenity and flexibility through the ashrams and gurus of India. After over a decade spent working and drinking too much in the world of advertising, Lucy decided she'd had enough of debating the meaning of the Jolly Green Giant and wanted to leave town for an altogether more spiritual and, well, meaningful way of life...And whilst she was at it, she could acquire a newly lithe and supple body. However, what she found when she reached India wasn't what she had expected. The relentless obsession with self-perfection and the alluring market in self-enlightenment all began to appear rather shallower than expected. And what began to truly seduce her was India itself. Would she come home looking like Christy Turlington and would she pick up a Buddhist serenity on the way? Or did something much funnier, more interesting and more complicated happen. Did she fall in love - with a place and its people? An emotional journey, a divine comedy of the Western obsession with life's deeper meaning, a yogic experiment and a love letter to India, this is an entertaining book from a wonderful new travel writer.
