In the best tradition of travel writing which combines both swagger and soul, a foreign correspondent takes a journey to the heart of Pakistan

Enchanted by his Anglo-Indian grandmother's stories about the subcontinent and his own youthful travels in the region, Isambard Wilkinson takes up his post as a British newspaper's correspondent in Pakistan, when the country is in the epicentre of 'the war on terror.'

Guided by his grandmother's great Pakistan friend, Wilkinson quickly abandons the journalistic pack, and, casting aside concerns for his fragile health, sets off on a quest to discover what of Pakistan's old traditions have been destroyed and what survives. His encounters with Sufi mystics, Omnipotent tribal chieftains, spies and rebellious domestic staff, unveil an often wild, contradictory and enchanting land in the throes of an identity crisis. His lyrical, incisive, moving and often hilarious accounts of his years spent exploring a misunderstood country has been hailed as a modern classic of the genre.
