56 of 75 for 2015. Frank Kusy's account of building an import business bringing goods from India (and later Thailand) to England is rife with intrigue, violence, and lots of local color--both in India and at home in England. At times the book seems more like a catalog of what not to do--finding a shady character as a partner, antagonizing customs officials, crossing international borders with undeclared goods--but it's always very readable and gives, I believe, a good account of business life in at least one part of the Subcontinent.

Book description
At 35, Frank Kusy was a struggling travel writer with five guides in print but not enough money to pay the rent. Then he met the Colonel in India.

‘You should try business, Frank!’ said the Colonel. ‘It would be a most spiritual experience!’

Spiritual or not, he was right. Five years on, Frank was the foremost wholesaler of hippy-Hindi glad rags in the UK. But at what cost...

Join Frank on this fun, crazy rite of passage through India [retrieved 6/13/2015 from Amazon.com]
