Publisher's summary

In 1971, Terry Tarnoff packed a bag, a guitar, and 16 harmonicas and headed out on an eight-year journey that would take him into the jungles of Africa, the mountains of India, and beyond. This account of his revelatory journey is a tumultuous love story, a spiritual odyssey, and a rollicking escapade all rolled up into one. Tarnoff is a fevered, risk-taking writer with an uncanny ability to render place.

The Bone Man of Benares is a lunatic bird of a book, flapping, singing, soaring, often all at the same time. It's a wild-hearted celebration of cross-cultural discovery, a laugh-out-loud, delirious adventure that traverses the chasm of time, speaking to listeners young and old about the universal need for connection.
