It may sound like it but it ain’t chick-lit, no ladies! This is armchair wanderlust at its most footloose... There are travel books that take you places the way travel books are supposed to do but Mona Lisa’s Pyjama stakes you places through a kaleidoscope of anecdotal stories—tales set in the financial district of India, tales about the surprisingly lush golf courses of the Middle East, tales of Sparta’s sword-makers and the genre setting film 300, tales of a Russian golfer who had his favourite clubs made out of a nuclear missile...! Written originally for Wall Street Journal, these ‘diverting dispatches from a roving reporter’ are compiled in the form of what seems to be a very interesting read. So, unlace your walking shoes, put your feet up, get a cool drink and get set to go around the world.
