• Sensual, earthly...incredibly well-informed... An engaging and powerful book

    Daily Telegraph
  • Essential... it brings the reader into the heart of the Indian subcontinent

    Irish Times
  • Travel writing with a difference as Buckley traces the route of the Ramayana, the great Indian epic, from north-west India to Sri Lanka, encountering "Marxists and Mystics" along the way. A brilliant blend of travelogue, history and romance

    Scotland on Sunday
  • A meditation on the mysteries of life masquerading as a rollicking road trip, in which Buckley heroically makes his way through the carnal to the divine... His India is a tumbling riot of brothels, beggars, bombs, road accidents, riots, temples... Woven into his own epic adventures is his raunchy and believable abridgement of the epic Ramayana, worthy Vikram Seth

  • Buckley is a born story-teller
