Want a lazy read for a weekend afternoon and don’t know what to pick up? Try this wonderful travelogue by Dervla Murphy, one of the best travel writers we have around, and her daughter Rachel, which describes an unplanned, no-money journey from Bombay to Cape Comorin in 1973. It is arresting, visual and cheeky at times, in its observations of a complicated country and terrain – not to mention a kaleidoscope of people.
