[good solid copy, light soiling/tanning to page edges, two previous owner's signatures on ffep; jacket heavily edgeworn, some fading at spine and along edges, various small tears and chips]. The author "tried to run away from facts by taking a whirlwind trip around the world. But he didn't succeed. The more he tried to escape them, the more he was foiled by his own sharp eyes and restless intelligence. The result is [this book], a compound of personal adventure, contemporary history, travel diary and just living." Among the places visited by this most interesting fellow was Bombay, where he had a look at the native film industry (pre-Bollywood) -- a duty for which he was eminently suited, having spent some years prior as a film critic and journalist in London and Hollywood.
