Beautiful cased edition of this classic novel.

Dissatisfied with the traditional Vedic way of life, Siddhartha, the handsome son of a Brahmin, leaves his family and his friend, Govinda, in search of a higher state of being. Having experienced the myriad forms of existence, from the wealthy and luxurious, to the pleasures of sensual and paternal love, Siddhartha finally settles down beside a river where a humble ferryman teaches him his most valuable lesson yet.

Hermann Hesse’s short, elegant novel, echoing the life of the Buddha, has been cherished by readers for decades as an unforgettable spiritual primer.

‘A subtle distillation of wisdom, stylistic grace and symmetry of form.’ —Sunday Times


‘A writer of genius.’ —The Times
