Product Details

Praise

“Christiensen’s lively curiosity informs several quirky and engrossing essays.” —Kirkus

“Christensen (1616: The World in Motion) a proud generalist and non–academic, addresses a slew of disparate subjects. . .and proves himself to be voracious reader who can clarify the present with knowledge of the past, accessibly summarize a subject, and share a fine story.” —Publishers Weekly

“An eclectic and sporadically brilliant book in which an erudite writer takes his readers on a set of historical and cultural birdwalks. ” —The Huffington Post

“An idiosyncratic world tour of diverse cultural histories, a tour de force of eclectic scholarship, a relief map of the journeys of a restless intellect, Thomas Christensen’s River of Ink flows from ancient China to the current Americas with myriad revelations along the way. Christensen is a genial guide to little–known wonders with a wealth of information and a light touch.—Stephen Kessler, author of The Tolsoty of the Zulus
