Spellbound by his grandmother’s Anglo-Indian heritage and the exuberant annual visits of her friend the Begum, Isambard Wilkinson became enthralled by Pakistan as an intrepid teenager. In Travels in a Dervish Cloak he sets out to discover the essence of the country.

Navigating a minefield of coups, conspiracies, cock-ups and bombs, Bard is reluctant to judge and describes the country in all its exuberant, colourful, contemporary glory. This is a funny, hashish- and whisky-scented travel book from the front line, full of open-hearted delight and a poignant lust for life.

‘Gives a glimpse of the joy and vitality to be found in this most complicated of countries. ’ The Daily Telegraph
