When Daniel Kalder, acclaimed author of Lost Cosmonaut, descended into the sewers of Moscow in pursuit of the mythical lost city of tramps, he didn't realise that he was embarking on a bizarre, year-long odyssey that would lead him thousands of miles across Russia to the Arctic Circle via the heart of Asia.

Review:

As travel journalists go, Kalder is pretty much the Anti-Palin, scouring obscure locations for excentrics, malcontents and lunatics ... Thoughful and funny. -- Esquire

Kalder is not only an excellent writer, with a vivid turn of phrase, but a sympathetic one: his concern is to ounderstand his subjects rather than exploit them ... his insight and skilful writing keeps you reading. -- Daily Telegraph

Kalder's vivid, witty and sometimes poetic prose describes encounters with wonderful and frightening characters ... Kalder shows a cosmopolitan curiosity and a sense of adventure ... and confirms the exciting talent revealed in his Lost Cosmonaut. -- Scotland on Sunday

Writing that is vibrant and dynamic and which rolls along taking the reader with it. His observations, witty and biting, are spot-on in relation to people and to places. -- Irish Times

a fine guide to a world that will be totally alien to most readers. He writes with incredible energy ... highly successful throughout ... Laid-back, unpretentious delivery, occasional interludes, postcards and posed pictures next to the new Messiah - all combine to make an impressive, unlikely whole. -- Scottish Review of Books

Book Description:

Strange Telescopes by Daniel Kalder is a hilariously weird, witty and unique travelogue from a dedicated 'antitourist', and author of Lost Cosmonaut.
