The dry desserts in India can sort of resemble Venus and the vast emptiness can be both alluring and scary. I have not read this book yet but I like the author, This book from your description sounds to be an interesting read, I will have to try it. Books can take me to different places that I am unable to visit, it is like an escape from my daily life and I am sure others feel the same way. Thank you for sharing this.
