Driving from India in a windscreenless car Neville Sarony, and his beautiful Nepalese wife Bim, arrive in Nepal covered in insects and muck. Neville immerses himself in a country that is being dragged from the 13th century to the 20th.

He becomes its first foreign lawyer and advises and befriends members of the Royal Family. Counsel in the Clouds is packed with friends and fraudsters, celebrities, historical events, and anecdotes. It is part history and part memoir.

There are jam sessions with local musicians, intransigent bureaucrats, and newspaper debates on fictitious theology. It is a compelling, unvarnished account of a fledging system of law and a moving portrait of 1960s life. At its core it is a love story about the tragic Bim and Neville’s spiritual home - Nepal.
