John Zubrzycki

Be guided by one of Australia’s most highly regarded authors and expert on India’s history, society, art and culture.

No other tour on offer gives you the access and the depth of knowledge that John brings to the table. His experience as a diplomat and foreign correspondent coupled with his 40 years of travelling around India sets John in an outstanding and privileged position. He has gained unique insights into the Subcontinent’s history, people, culture and society that have inspired the stories in his acclaimed books.

“One has to be exhilarated by the contradictions and wonders of this story. It is a tale told with a novelist’s vivacity, a first-class narrator’s eye for pace, and a poet’s sensibility for language. A delightful read.”

Tom Keneally

“One of the most exciting narrative histories to come out of India.”

William Dalrymple

“Exceptionally well-crafted and brilliantly told, Jadoowallahs, Jugglers and Jinns brings alive the most enchanting tales and traditions from the history of Indian magic.”
