When Edward Enfield was a lad, he was sent to Canada to avoid the Blitz. When he returned to England, he began his National Service. While vowing he did not want to leave England, he was hired by a shipping company and sent to Asia, where he got married, became an avid horseman and discovered a hatred for sailing. Not bad for a man famous among his service friends for not being able to read a map. Part travelogue, part memoir, An Eastern Odyssey: The Adventures of Edward Enfield is a love letter to a way of life that has disappeared and an elegy to a good life lived.
