Love it! Mar 14, 2008
"Surrounded by Indians" is a very funny, intelligent, ironic book. Mattison visited India without preconceptions, but with an open heart. He fell in love with India and Its culture and wrote a playful, charming, and intelligent account of his times there. Not to say that he agrees with every part of Indian culture, but he is curious about the culture and emotionally embraces the people. It is nice to read from the perspective of a newcomer to the culture and gives me an idea of what to expect if I were to go.
