About this Item

New York: Knopf, 1990. First edition. A fine copy in quarter-backed red cloth and paper-backed boards with gilt spine lettering in a fine pictorial dustwrapper. The engaging story of the author's trip across India during the summer monsoon. Akhil Sharma commends this book as a "joy to his quest--whether interviewing Saudi tourists who come to India to be pounded by the rain or while discussing how exactly to bury a body when the ground is basically mud--that turns what could be a series of set pieces into a great and loving adventure." One of Condé Nast's 88 Greatest Travel Books of All Time. Bookseller Inventory # 7330
