India and Back takes the form of a 12 month flip calendar of the year following my back injury while traveling. Each month the calendar becomes more distorted until the surgery resolves the issue and I am pain free.   In India all important decisions are made consulting a horoscope.  The monthly images are above the calendar, covered with my “back story.”  I dedicate this book to the brave souls who suffer from chronic pain.
