Editorial Reviews

*A truly wonderful writer who has delved into the human condition around the world for two decades to create a canon of work that is invigorating, heartbreaking, hilarious, slyly seditious and ultimately illuminating.* --Toronto Sun*Such a book as this rather marvellously explains why literature still lives and can remain such a pleasure. Maclean has a vivid novelistic gift.* --John Fowles, Spectator*Delicious, fizzing with energy and incident… One of the most original and innovative travel books for years, elegantly written, beautifully observed, often very funny. Buoyant as helium with a wind at its back.* --Alexander Frater, The Observer *An arresting book which speaks in a vigorous and original voice.* --Lucy Hughes-Hallett, Sunday Times *Original and fiercely imaginative.* --Tim Herald, Literary Review *Remarkable; entrancing, lyrical, singing prose.* --BBC Kaleidoscope *A remarkable, beguiling journey; so polished, so clever, so imaginative, so artful, so innovative.* --Financial Times*A fabulous adventure story, wise, witty and never self-indulgent, as if Jack London had - in a fit of absent-mindedness - joined forces with Jane Austen.* --Alberto Manguel, Author *Rory MacLean is one of the most strikingly original and talented travel writers of our generation.* -- Katie Hickman Author
