Notes From A Small Room: Signed As Essays From A Small Room
‘It’s the simple things in life that keep us from going crazy;’ Ruskin Bond writes in this enchanting collection of essays; a celebration of the uncomplicated pleasures of a life well-lived. In ‘A Good Philosophy’ we learn of Bond’s life philosophy; or the lack of it; and ‘In Search of the Perfect Window’ we join him in meditating on the qualities of a good window and its importance to a room. Whether contemplating the sound of a tropical downpour; on the fragrance of lime trees in the Himalayas or on a year spent with his cat Suzie; Ruskin Bond transports us to a quieter; more elegant world where time moves at a gentle pace. He invites us to revel in the intricacies of life and to poke fun at its absurdities; with insight; wisdom and wit.
