9780140095074: Hindoo Holiday: An Indian Journal (Travel Library)

In the 1920s, the young J. R. Ackerley spent several months in India as the personal secretary to the maharajah of a small Indian principality. In his journals, Ackerley recorded the Maharajah's fantastically eccentric habits and riddling conversations, and the odd shambling day-to-day life of his court. "Hindoo Holiday" is an intimate and very funny account of an exceedingly strange place, and one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century travel literature.

Product Description:

This is Ackerley's account of his six-month stay in India, as the companion to the Maharajah of the small Hindu state of Chhokrapur in the 1920s. The journal extracts the irony, absurdity and farce of life in India as well as the dignity and richness of an ancient culture.
