Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this text, Bruce Chatwin writes of his father, of his friend Howard Hodgkin, and of his talks with Andre Malraux and Nadezhda Mandelstram. He also follows unholy grails on his travels, such as the rumour of a "wolf-boy" in India, or the idea of looking for a Yeti.

Synopsis:

Here is a journey into the interior of a celebrated novelist and traveler, charged with all of the narrative power and intellectual challenge of his fiction.
