Beautiful and lyrical little gem of a book.

This book is not very large but it packs a big punch! It is esentially the reminescences of an Indian student in Oxford. The power and beauty of the book lies in the wonderful descriptions contained herein. I grew up in Oxford (and it is where I enjoy being the most even now) and Chaudhuri captures the essence of the town beautifully. His free-flowing, beautiful writing is what makes this book such a delightful read and it is an wonderful way of losing oneself in memories of one of the prettiest places in the world to live in. In addition the author intermixes his experiences of Oxford with his memories of India and especially of his time with his music teacher. A delight.

A beautiful lyrical book

This book is beautiful, wonderful to read, hauntingly poetic, and one of my favorites. I have never read anything like this before, and I can bet that you haven't either. Sit with it on a rainy day with a hot cup of tea on your favorite couch when you have nothing else on your mind, and get lost in the reverie.
