Under the Sun by Bruce Chatwin.. These letters by the dead-at-48 “Songlines” author fill in some of the blanks in his globetrotting life, but the man who made the Moleskin notebook prêt-à-porter fashionable is also humanized by his fabulous excuse-making here. Yet he also rhapsodizes on big themes.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"… a handsome book, full of informative passages from Shakespeare, illuminating quotes from friends and wonderfully laconic and deflating footnotes from Elizabeth.."

The Guardian

"I cannot imagine a more fitting grave for this strange, magnificent writer …."

Wall Street Journal

Author bio: Bruce Chatwin reinvented British travel writing with his first book, In Patagonia, and followed it with many travel books and novels, each unique and extraordinary. He died in 1989. More information can be found here:
