    Review quote
    "'Flawless scintillating prose, writing it is impossible not to admire' Financial Times "Radical, humane, witty, sometimes wonderfully dandyish, at other times, impassioned and serious." Allain de Botton (on Wanderlust) "Fascinating, inspiring and beautifully written." George Monbiot (on Hope in the Dark)"
