One of the funniest books that I ever read is ‘The Shaman in Stilettos’ by Anna Hunt. I read the book three Christmases ago and, even now thinking about it, I find myself smiling. The book is Anna’s autobiography about her travels to Peru in Central America and about how it changed her outlook on life.Anna describes her spiritual journey in a hilarious way, with each little story in the book being detailed with a sense of humour yet clarity about the journey.
Although the book is essentially about values and spiritual aspects of life, it is also a travel memoir and so would be a delightful read for fellow travelers.
Here is the official introduction to the book:
‘Anna Hunt’s inspirational memoir charts her journey from Cambridge graduate and celebrity interviewer for one of the highest selling newspapers in Britain, to the untouched wilderness of the Peruvian rainforest where she spent months drinking one of the most potent hallucinogens known to man, to apprentice to a disarmingly handsome and charismatic Peruvian shaman. & back again. Today she is a London-based shaman working with an international portfolio of private and corporate clients.’
