Classifying this book was difficult, as it fits so many categories -- humour, religion and spirituality,philosphy, politics -- to classify it as "travel" does it an injustice, but it seemed the closest to the overall effect. This vibrant book candidly chronicles a young Australian woman's difficulties in coming to terms with living in India, confronting her own lack of spirituality, and dealing with a new husband whose profession (reporter) takes him away from her for months at a time, leaving her to cope with a new country pretty much on her own. The writing is brash and breezy, yet deeply thoughful at the same time. What an eye-opener! I'm passing it on to my daughter, who will, I'm sure, pass it on, as well.
