A rare gem by a true master, you will enjoy this book!, 6 Oct. 2009
Every page of this wonderful book gleams with wisdom and style. William Dalrymple may well be our best travel writer. The book is divided up well and can easily be dipped into. The company of Willie and his interviewees exude warmth and wistful devotion. I really did love this book. I bought a copy for my boyfriend as well. If he doesn't enjoy it God - and Vishnu - help him.
