9780099428473: Journey To Ithaca

Like so many other young Westerners in the 1960s and 1970s, Matteo leaves home to search for spiritual enlightenment in the ashrams of India. He believes he finds it at the feet of 'the Mother', but down-to-earth Sophie, who accompanies him, does not find her inspiring so much as mysterious, and decides to trace the Mother's own story - from her travels with an Indian dance troupe in Paris, Venice and New York, to her search for divine love in India.

"Superbly powerful... A rich, evocative book" ( Spectator)

Book Description:

'One of the best Indian novelists writing in English' - Independent
