Description

Although he is best known for his luminous reports from the farthest-flung corners of the earth, Bruce Chatwin possessed a literary sensibility that reached beyond the travel narrative to span a world of topics- from art and antiques to archaeology and architecture. This spirited collection of previously neglected or unpublished essays, articles, short stories, travel sketches, and criticism represents every aspect and period of Chatwin’s career as it reveals an abiding theme in his work: his fascination with, and hunger for, the peripatetic existence. While Chatwin’s poignant search for a suitable place to “hang his hat,” his compelling argument for the nomadic “alternative,” his revealing fictional accounts of exile and the exotic, and his wickedly en pointe social history of Capri prove him to be an excellent observer of social and cultural mores, Chatwin’s own restlessness, his yearning to be on the move, glimmers beneath every surface of this dazzling body of work.

About the Author:Bruce Chatwin was born in 1940. He worked at Sotheby's and then for the Sunday Times (London). His first book, In Patagonia, became an instant classic. It was followed by a series of books notable for their originality and style, including The Songlines and What am I Doing Here? He was, as Peter Levi said in The Independent "the best travel writer of his generation, and one of its deepest writers of any kind."
