    1. Once I m bereft because I ve finished reading Frank Kusy s latest book.Chronologically, this one fits in between Kevin and I in India and Off the Beaten Track.Frank Kusy is an Indian travel memoir writer, whose action packed books are such an enjoyable read, not only because of their informative almost laid back style but also because of Frank s self effacing sense of humour He s very hard on himself and his own shortcomings in a totally hilarious way I ve found myself giggling and laughing out [...]

    2. Two halves of Frank Kusy another winner Like Frank Kusy s first book, Kevin and I in India, this most recent book also features India Frank is going to be writing a guide on a 66 day round trip for travellers who ll go and stay in the better places, the mid range establishments so it s different to his Kevin and I book in that on that trip he did it all on a shoestring.I really enjoyed it as I knew I would, having read all this author s previous books Frank Kusy has such amusing ways of telling [...]

    3. I love travel memoirs and came across Frank Kusy s India travel books a few years ago They are addictive as after reading one, I had to order the rest of them I m fascinated by India and love reading anything about India and especially memoir travel books The best so far is this author s series of offbeat, true life adventures in India They are witty, informative and in this case, downright hilarious at times Frank has committed himself to do a tour of India in 66 days so that he will be able to [...]

Once again Frank Kusy has not disappointed I was lucky enough to beta read this, his new memoir and I m than happy to leave my review It fits in after his trip to India where he met Kevin Kevin and I in India it s in the 1980 s and it s a whirlwind wizz around the Country A publisher want s a travel guide for India of course but in 66 days Mr Kusy said yes to writing up on the upmarket hotels for the well heeled type of traveller not the hippy hmmm That s where the fun starts in his usual desc [...]

    6. Frank Kusy s sublime travelogue Me and Kevin in India holds a high place on my very long list of books about traveling in the sub continent Sadly Dial and Talk Foreign at Once is funny and observant but lacks the impact and honesty of his first book Just as Kusy s mission to travel around India in 66 days to write a travel guide is rather a rush, the book reads as rather rushed too It lacks the sense of wonder of his first book where everything was new, spectacular and unexpected and despite the [...]

    9. BrilliantIn the age of trip advisor, Airbandb, snapchat and the rest, it s nice to look back at how we use to do it, with a book This is a great read telling you the trials and tribulations of the travel guide, Frank, trying to get round India in two months to produce the guide that I used when I went It s funny, informative and reminds me of a much easier to live in world I would recommend it to anyone.

    11. Don t forget, Frank, I want something new and different Don t bring me back any hippy rubbish British author Frank Kusy has been writing travel guides and travel experiences for than 30 years Though his travel guides for Cadogan Guides Thailand, India and Thailand and Burma are skilled and have aided travelers for years, his love of cats documented in his novel Ginger the Gangster Cat and his enthusiasm for Buddhism in his book He Ain t Heavy, He s My Buddha his novels, memoirs, and comedy book [...]

    12. This author has me hooked again I have read all of his previous books, and now this one, slotting in earlier in the Kusy life and timeline The brief is to do India in 66 days and Frank sets a frenetic pace from day one, hurtling from one place to another, meeting strange new friends, and spending a lifetime on buses and those never ending train rides that seem to be a fixture of the Indian sub continent His skill is to take the mundane and raise it to a level where the reader can smell, taste, s [...]

    13. This is just simply another winner from the pen of Frank Kusy Frank is sent to India to research and write a travel book catering for the middle range foreign traveller However he was told by the P.R Lady at the 5 star Taj Intercontinental that there was no such thing visitors either live first class or on the base line, like hippies The main problem facing him though is that he has just 66 days in which to travel the Indian sub continent gathering enough information for a travel guide What foll [...]

    14. Dial and Talk Foreign at Once by Frank Kusy is a travel book wrapped inside of an adventure story At its core, the book was written to inspire others to travel to India and let them know of places to stay, visit, ways to get around, and lessons to be learned Frank was able to accomplish this by telling a fascinating narrative of his 66 day journey through India and the adventures he experienced and the disasters he had to endure From the beginning I knew that I was in store for a good fun read T [...]

    15. Another Frank Kusy ClassicHaving thoroughly enjoyed all of Frank Kusy s travel books to date, I was really looking forward to reading his latest release and I wasn t disappointed Dial and Talk Foreign at Once takes you on a madcap 66 day dash around India as Frank tries to accomplish his mission of writing a travel guide aimed at middle of the road travellers He quickly discovers that visitors to India either live first class or on the base line, as he himself had done on his previous trip to In [...]

    16. I really enjoyed Frank Kusy s previous two memoirs, Too Young to Be Old and Kevin and I in India , so I was eager to read this latest instalment of his memoirs I must admit to feeling the lack of Kevin at first, but thankfully Frank meets many other quirky characters as he travels the length and breadth of India in just 66 days I always enjoy Frank s faithful representation of the written word in notices and menus and there are many hilarious examples in this book, of which the title is only one [...]

    17. India in 66 daysThis extraordinary title really sums up the book There are so many instances of misunderstandings both in the written and spoken word in this book It really made me laugh but I m not sure that I would have wanted to travel to India as a result of reading this and the previous memoir, Kevin and I in India Considering he was researching for a guide book suited to the well heeled traveller unlike those catered for in the Lonely Planet Guides there is an awful lot of squalor and dis [...]

    18. Frank Kusy s, Dial and Talk Foreign at Once, is a decent sized novel that is fast paced, but covering a lot of material Frank was challenged to travel throughout India for sixty six days and report on his backpacking discoveries I am not familiar with the Indian culture, but Kusy does a great job at showing all sides of it There are certainly some very quirky situations that Kusy ends up in and it is all very entertaining to read I was laughing so hard at some of these situations because they we [...]
