Empire Of The Soul
Some Journeys In IndiaBook - 1994
Paul William Roberts taught Shakespeare in India, an experience that launched his love affair with the country. In Empire of the Soul he creates a remarkable portrait of India's political, cultural and spiritual life. He reveals crumbling palaces where maharajas live as they did five centuries ago; ashrams, temples and caves where the holy men are as terrifying as they are tender; and a millionaire drug dealer's secure fortress. Written with Roberts' trademark verve and historical perspective, Empire of the Soul is funny, insightful and surreal."One of the most remarkable travel books ever written. It's brilliant, funny, moving and often profound ... Empire of the Soul is the most living book about India I have ever read." --Colin Wilson"Reminiscent of Bruce Chatwin, this soul-searching literary travelogue turns a keen and uncompromising eye toward India." --Publishers Weekly
