If I have to make a list of Humor books from India, I will definitely put Anurag Mathur’s The Inscrutable America at the top of the list. Published in 1991, the book is the story of Gopal Kumar, son of a wealthy hair oil baron, who moves to USA to do Chemical Engineering.
Gopal is a pre-liberation, pre-internet and pre-globalization days youngster. The only source for him to learn about American culture was Letters to Penthouse!
His interpretation America, its culture and people is so amusing and funny that you can’t stop turning the pages. Its a tiny, 250 pages book, you might complete in couple of hours. If you are having a dull moment, grab the copy and have an instant fun.
