Hindoo Holiday (New York Review Books Classics) by J.R. Ackerley


In the Nineteen Twenties, the younger J. R. Ackerley spent several months in India as the personal secretary to the maharajah of a small Indian principality. In his journals, Ackerley recorded the Maharajah’s beautifully eccentric habits and riddling conversations, and the bizarre shambling everyday lifetime of his courtroom. Hindoo Vacation is an intimate and very humorous account of an particularly ordinary position, and probably the most masterpieces of twentieth-century shuttle literature.
