Travels in a Dervish Cloak, Paperback Book

Travels in a Dervish Cloak Paperback


Spellbound by his grandmother s Anglo Indian heritage and the exuberant annual visits of her friend the Begum, Isambard Wilkinson became enthralled by Pakistan as an intrepid teenager, eventually working there as a foreign correspondent during the War on Terror.

Seeking the land behind the headlines, Bard sets out to discover the essence of a country convulsed by Islamist violence.

What of the old, mystical Pakistan has survived and what has been destroyed? His is a funny, hashish? and whisky?scented travel book from the frontline, full of open?hearted delight and a poignant lust for life.
