About the Author
Christopher Kremmer is one of Australia's most respected and popular writers of narrative non-fiction, whose work has been compared favourably with that of V.S Naipaul and William Dalrymple. Educated at the University of Canberra , he spent a decade in Asia working as a foreign correspondent, producing a series of award-winning bestsellers, including The Carpet Wars, Bamboo Palace and his latest book, Inhaling the Mahatma, a personal history of India. Born in Sydney he divides his time between homes in India and Australia's Southern Highlands." --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Reviewed in Australia on 3 November 2019
Finished it in between travels during my first three days in Laos, today at the Plain of Jars. So dense with names, places and events but human and keenly observed, with the author a participant but not the protagonist. You get a real sense of place and the struggle and predicament of the Lao people. It should be updated again.
