Lost and Found in India

Lost and Found in India

Author(s): Braja Sorensen

Location(s): Mayapur

Genre(s): Autobiography/Memoirs

Era(s): Modern



Most books on India written by foreigners share one trait: the authors visit India, then leave. Sorensen moved in, set up house, became a resident in a village on the banks of the Ganges river, and eventually called India “home”. A dozen years later, she’s still there. Her writing swings from the depths of an ancient culture through to drunk bathroom repair men, tied together with a refreshing, grounded voice. It’s macabre, hilarious, philosophical, and all 100% true. No, really…. “Braja Sorensen describes her adopted India with no analytical or spiritual pretenses. A funny, committed book.” – Farrukh Dhondy
