Under the Sun: The Letters of Bruce Chatwin

Be the first to review this product

The celebrated author of such beloved works as In Patagonia and The Songlines, Bruce Chatwin was a nomad whose desire for adventure and enlightenment was made wholly evident by his writing. A man of intense energy and chameleonlike complexity, he was, in his life as in his art, forever in quest of the exotic and the unexpected. He moved at ease within diverse art, literary, and social circles, and his lifelong travels took him to the farthest flung corners of Asia, Africa, South America, and Australia. This marvelous selection of letters to his wife, Elizabeth, to his parents, Charles and Margharita, and to friends, including Patrick Leigh Fermor, James Ivory, Paul Theroux, and Susan Sontag reveals a passionate man and a storyteller par excellence, spinning the narrative of his life from his first week of school to his untimely death. Written with the verve and sharpness of expression that first marked him as a writer of singular talent, Chatwin's letters provide a vivid record of his changing interests and concerns, as well as chronicling his lifelong restlessness and the gestation of his books. Under the Sun is the closest readers will get to an autobiography by this exceptional literary talent.
