Finally! A happy Indian novel! I thought it might never happen, but I thoroughly enjoyed this little book about a young Indian man who gets tired of all the noise and bustle around him and runs off to live in a guava tree. He sort of inadvertantly becomes a holy man, and there are monkeys involved, and things get a little out of hand. It's funny, it's clever, and it has the same gentle flavor and lilting language as Alexander McCall Smith's Precious Ramotswe books. What a fun read.

JennyO has been responsible for many of my favorite reads over the last few years. So I'm thrilled that her newest book offerings have arrived just as I'm about to leave on a 10-day trip back east. Now I'll have some good reading materials for the plane. And that's a long plane ride. Thanks, J!
