He has published three books since Three Quarters of a Footprint including Abdul's Taxi to Kalighat about Kolkata and a novel about Edward Lear's visit to India, Bengal, The Cold Weather, 1873. He has also written regularly for The Times, Condé Nast Traveller, National Geographic Traveler and many other magazines. He teaches in the School of Humanities and Cultural Industries at Bath Spa University and is working on a third Indian travel book about Lucknow. His interests are broad, ranging from gastronomy - he is a contributor to The Oxford Companion to Food - to art history but his real passion is India.

I am a regular visitor to southern India, and have been so since 1994. I feel that what Roberts wrote following his extended stay in 1990 resonates well with my experiences of the region over the past more than 20 years.
The end section of the book contains a number of informative and interesting notes on things to which he referred in his text. The 'articles' on the Jews of Cochin and the Syrian Christians were particularly good examples of these.
This is a wonderful travel book that should appeal to those who know southern India and alson those who do not. A great read.
