Ballads of Burma
Devoted to the lighter side of past and present expat life in South Asia, this series is for travelers who know that the most important item to bring along on any journey is a sense of humor. Although the current seven titles are admittedly of questionable literary merit, they make fine traveling companions. Well-dressed in imperial khaki, they are solid enough to withstand the roughest Himalayan trek and witty enough to light up a dull dinner on a cruise liner. They come in various sizes, all limited editions, hardbound with stamped covers, gilt edges, and ribbon bookmarks.
