Overview

This volume brings together Ruskin Bond’s autobiographical writings—memoirs, essays, journals, philosophical musings—of over five decades. As Bond writes about the experiences of his formative years that came to shape his art, of life’s little joys and fleeting regrets, of the eccentricities of friends and family, of the birds and flowers that each season brings, he transports us to a more elegant world where time moves at a gentler pace. Brimming over with his trademark wisdom, warmth and candour, this collection shows why Ruskin Bond is one of India’s most treasured writers.
