Description of the book "Hindoo Holiday: An Indian Journal"In the 1920s, the young 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 fantastically eccentric habits and riddling conversations, and the odd shambling day-to-day life of his court. "Hindoo Holiday" is an intimate and very funny account of an exceedingly strange place, and one of the masterpieces of twentieth-century travel literature.
