Description

"Wonderful...the closest we are ever going to get to a Chatwin autobiography." -William Dalrymple, "The Times Literary Supplement" (London)The celebrated author of such beloved works as "In Patagonia" and "The Songlines," Bruce Chatwin was a nomad whose desire for adventure and enlightenment was made wholly evident by his writing. This marvelous selection of letters-to his wife, to his parents, and to friends, including Patrick Leigh Fermor, James Ivory, and Paul Theroux- reveals a passionate man and a storyteller par excellence. Written with the verve and sharpness of expression that first marked him as an author of singular talent, Chatwin's letters provide a window into his remarkable life and strikingly detailed insights regarding his literary ambitions and tastes.show more
