A sharply funny travelogue from a fantastic travel writer. Lucy Edge tells the story of her 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 had 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.

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, this is a very funny book from a wonderful travel writer.

User Review  - Kim - Goodreads

It read like a yoga travel journal. Not at all what I expected. Very little about yoga, more about the many many people she can into contact with, shopping for saris, drinking and doing yoga hung over. I would not recommend this book to anyone really interested in learning about yoga. Read full review
