Chasing The Monsoon - Alexander Frater

A pleasant though rather inconsequential account of a journey through India, prompted by health troubles and family memories (and the freelancer's eternal search for something to write about). Frater affects a rather naive tone, which I think is a pose. But his experiences, such as they are, are not badly served by his way of suggesting that he's just setting things down as they passed his eyes, or thoughts as they popped into his head.
