It left me lukewarm, compared to Chatwin's collected letters, which are more informative and consistently rather amusing.
The first section, Horreur du domicile
, is OK; the second, Stories
, quite unremarkable; the third, The Nomadic Alternative
, quite redundant if you know the letters; Reviews
- might be useful to some, but not many; and the final section, Art and the Image-breaker
forms an interesting analysis of Chatwin's attitude to art, possessions, and nomadism.
