Reader's note

This classic pink Penguin book by J. R. Ackerley will add a touch of vintage charm to your bookshelf. This book is less of a travel journal and more of a comic memoir. It takes place when writer J. R. Ackerley was a secretary to Vishvanath Singh, Maharajah of Chhatarpur for five months between 1923 - 1924. It seems that some of the British who lived in India at this time developed their own slang - 'I detest your septic hat' she remarked. It wobbles up and down on my idiot bun!' But she kept the hat nevertheless. The words 'idiot' and 'septic' are used frequently as terms of disparagement. Also 'lethal' It seems that everything is either 'lethal' or 'septic'. - Words changed their meaning even in 1923. Add this classic book to your collection today.
