I found this book by doing something I never do closing my eyes in a used bookstore and grabbing something off the shelf It turned out to be great an Indian author touring America in the 50 s he meets Greta Gar Though the subject is boring, the author made it a very energetic and witty read.The only reason that made me abandon this book is the very plot It is not very interesting and as usual it was a mistake that I started I suspect other books of his are better.It s just a miscellaneous collection of tidbits, jottings, about a few months he spent in the U.S no unifying theme that I could see.There were definitely interesting moments and observations, but on the whole the author simply comes across as self c A simple narration of Narayan s trip to USA Throughout the book, Narayan shares his observation of American society and the culture during his trip and every now and then, but not very often, he has some profound to shar Good narration and capture of sentiments and behaviour Especially liked the section about coffee He is a master story teller Part travelogue, part autobiographical Very rare do you see such a good combination of imagery, wit nonchalance
