Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 1998. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Open market ed. 214 x 149 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. It is commonly supposed that Bruce Chatwin was an ingenuous latecomer to the profession of letters, a misapprehension given apparent credence by that now famous passage in his lyrical, autobiographical I Always Wanted to Go to Patagonia, in which we are told that this indefatigable traveler s literary career began in midstride, almost on a whim, with a telegram announcing his departure for the farthest-flung corner of the globe: Have gone to Patagonia. Such a view overlooks the fact that from the late 1960s onward Chatwin was already fashioning the tools of his future trade in the columns of a variety of magazines and journals. And that he continued to do so through every twist and turn of his career, from art expert to archaeologist, to journalist and author, right up until his death in 1989. These previously neglected or unpublished pieces - short stories, travel sketches, essays, articles, and criticism - gathered together here for the first time, cover every period and aspect of the writer s career, and reflect the abiding themes of his work: roots and rootlessness, exile and the exotic, possession and renunciation.

Book Description Penguin Books. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 224 pages. Dimensions: 7.5in. x 5.0in. x 0.6in.Although he is best known for his luminous reports from the farthest-flung corners of the earth, Bruce Chatwin possessed a literary sensibility that reached beyond the travel narrative to span a world of topicsfrom art and antiques to archaeology and architecture. This spirited collection of previously neglected or unpublished essays, articles, short stories, travel sketches, and criticism represents every aspect and period of Chatwins career as it reveals an abiding theme in his work: his fascination with, and hunger for, the peripatetic existence. While Chatwins poignant search for a suitable place to hang his hat, his compelling arguments for the nomadic alternative, his revealing fictional accounts of exile and the exotic, and his wickedly en pointe social history of Capri prove him to be an excellent observer of social and cultural mores, Chatwins own restlessness, his yearning to be on the move, glimmers beneath every surface of this dazzling body of work.
