"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.
Bruce Chatwin reinvented British travel writing with his first book, and followed it with four other books, each unique and extraordinary. He died in 1989.
