A series of engrossing sketches reveals an India that may be surprising to many Westerners. Instead of a single country, the listener will discover, India is a nation of several civilizations in different states of development. The author, a well-regarded writer, reporter, and lecturer, covers the country from its ancient cultures to her encounters with the film directors and poets and the complicated machination of the world's largest democracy.

    " Sassy and thought-provoking perspective on Indian culture and history since independence. Good historical prep reading for a trip to the country, if taken with a grain of salt. "

    " Got bored with this one. She didn't have anything to say that I haven't heard from my friends. "

    " She is a great writer, easy to read. I enjoyed the mix of history of India, her own memoirs, and a native's viewpoint but from the outside looking in, as she doesn't live in India full-time. "
