it was amazing
Read in September, 2006

Taking place in Varanasi, a place Anders and I have talked endlessly about visiting, this is one of my recent favorites. I bought it for my best friend for her birthday. I consistently appreciate Pankaj Mishra's insights into the relationships between South Asians and Western travelers. I totally understood when he described the home of one expat as full of "self-consciously ethnic knick-knacks."
