Product description

Review

"Funny, touching and addictive" (More)

"British images of India are invariably filtered through the apologetic hangover of the Raj or the ganja whiff of the hippy trail. In this refreshingly cliche-free and highly readable memoir, we are given a blunter, Australian view... frequently wry and thoughtful" (Daily Telegraph)

"Refreshingly ambivilent about the country's so-called charms. Part travelogue, part life-changing odyssey, part love story" (The Scotsman)

"Kathy Lette meets Tom Robbins on a slow train to Varanasi with Bill Bryson supplying the onion bhajis... Very, very funny. Sarah MacDonald captures everything that is frustrating, infuriating and exhilarating about India and presents it in an irresistible package. Will make even the most die-hard atheist want to don a sari and go on a spiritual journey" (Peter Moore)

"Sarah Macdonald pays up in the spiritual mega-market... Raunchy religion with redemption on the side" (Justine Hardy, author of Bollywood Boy) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"Hilarious and incredible." (B Magazine)

"Kathy Lette meets Tom Robbins on a slow train to Varanasi with Bill Bryson supplying the onion bhajis ... very, very funny." (Peter Moore)

"Prepare for the fast-moving and masterful narration by Kate Hosking. Her characterization of the Indian characters is nuanced and fun. The contrast with the distinctive Australian accents of MacDonald and other ex-pats adds to the sense of adventure and excitement and provides a backdrop for spiritual understanding." (AudioFile Magazine) --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
