9780091899233: Yoga School Dropout

A sharply-funny travelogue from a fantastic new writer. The story of a personal quest for serenity and yogic flexibility through the ashrams and gurus of India. After over a decade spent working and drinking too much in the world of advertising, Lucy decided she to leave town for an altogether more spiritual and, well, meaningful way of life- And whilst she was at it, she could acquire a newly lithe and supple body. However, what she found in India wasn't at all what she had expected. The relentless obsession with self-perfection and an alluring market in self-enlightenment appeared rather shallower than expected. What began to truly seduce her was India itself. Would she come home looking like Christy Turlington and pick up some Buddhist serenity on the way? Or did something much funnier, interesting and complicated happen? Did she fall in love - with a place and its people? A divine comedy of the Western obsession with life's deeper meaning, a yogic experiment and a love letter to India.

Review:

"A hilarious, hopeless and desperate quest" (Chris Stewart, author of Driving Over Lemons)

"Neither boringly cynical or stupidly gullible, she's open-minded, warm and funny" (Independent on Sunday)

"A light hearted account of one lady's search for mystic India which offers fun and witty observations on the current obsession with finding life's deeper meaning, while offering a eulogy to India's varied and beautiful land and people-scapes" (Yoga and Health)

"A quirky travelogue... Edge strikes a nicely satirical note and the characters she meets along the way make perfect fodder for gentle fun-poking" (Easy Living)

"A witty account of a journey through India's ashrams" (Health and Fitness Magazine)

From the Publisher:

'A hilarious, hopeless and desperate quest' Chris Stewart, author of Driving Over Lemons
