A Blonde in the Bazaar by Jill Worrall

Regular price $13.50 Sale

Few Western women know Pakistan as Jill Worrall does. Since her first visit over 16 years ago she has become deeply attached to this fascinating but trouble-torn land. Almost always in the company of Pakistani Mujahid Ali Khan, with whom she has a close but sometimes combustible working relationship, she has been the special guest at a wedding in the Shangri-La setting of Hunza, spent a week riding a camel through the remote Baluchistan Desert, become a fan of Pakistan's Lollywood movies, and floated in a boat down the Indus. She has travelled under armed guard to the legendary Khyber Pass and retraced the steps of Buddhist pilgrims and traders along one of the ancient silk routes. A Blonde in the Bazaar is a richly humorous and vivid account and speaks eloquently and delightfully of Jill Worrall's love for a country often badly misunderstood in the West (especially since September 11). It offers a unique insight into Pakistan's cultures, superb scenery, fascinating history and hospitable and passionate people. This 2003 New Holland (NZ) Paperback is in Very Good condition.
