Product Details

Praise

“A blend of travelogue, memoir, history, philosophy, science, meditation, and commonplace book…Chatwin’s astonishing style captures the metamorphoses of his own ‘Walkabout’….He takes the travel genre beyond exoticism and the simple picturesque into the metaphysical.”—The Boston Globe

The riches of The Songlines are varied and artfully stashed. Chatwin’s physical journey over Australia’s parched hide corresponds to his intellectual excursions, which are full of surprising turns.”—Time

“No ordinary book ever issues from Bruce Chatwin. Each bears the imprint of a dazzingly original mind.”—Newsday
