Description

An entrancing and compelling travelogue about an endlessly fascinating land.

At the age of fifty, R K Narayan left India for the first time to travel through America. In this account of his journey, the writer's pen unerringly captures the glamor and energy of New York city, the friendliness of the West Coast, the wealth and insularity of the Mid-West, the magnificence of the Grand Canyon.

Threading their way through the narrative are a host of delightful characters - from celebrities like Greta Garbo, Aldous Huxley, Martha Graham, Cartier Bresson, Milton Singer, Edward G. Robinsdon and Ravi Shankar to the anonymous business tycoon on the train.

As a bonus, there are wry snapshots of those small but essential aspects of American life - muggers, fast food restaurants, instant gurus, subway commuters, and American football.
