Keith Mabbut is at a crossroads in his life. A professional writer of some repute, he has reached the age of fifty-six with nothing resembling the success of his two great literary heroes, George Orwell and Albert Camus. When he is offered the opportunity of a lifetime-- to write the biography of the elusive Hamish Melville, a widely respected and highly influential activist and humanitarian-- he seizes the chance to write something meaningful. His search to find out the real story behind the legend takes Mabbut to the lush landscapes and environmental hotspots of India. The more he discovers about Melville, the more he admires him-- and the more he connects with an idealist who wanted to make a difference. But is his quarry really who he claims to be? As Keith discovers, the truth can be whatever we make it.

Have to admit I am always keen to experience anything with Michael Palin's name attached. It's clear from the writing that Michael has been a keen observer during his travels and that knowledge is put to good use in descriptive passages of many countries. I half expected this to be a clever, humorous story, instead it is a thought-provoking treatise on progress, relationships, passion and adventure.
