Anmeldelser

«Wonderful»

* The Times *

«Brilliant . . . Go on. Start walking. Get lost. Who knows what you'll find»

* Guardian *

«Rebecca Solnit is unquestionably one of the finest non-fiction writers of her generation. Possessed of eloquence and erudition in equal measure, her books have a wonderful capacity to lead the reader on unexpected and intriguing journeys ... As with Solnit's previous books, there is an emotional, even a polemical dimension to these ideas. It is a rare writer who can write so excitingly with both heart and head»

* Scotsman *

«Like Simon Schama, Solnit is a cultural historian in the desert-mystic mode, trailing ideas like swarms of butterflies»

* Harper’s Magazine *

«Fascinating, inspiring and beautifully written»

George Monbiot

«Flawless scintillating prose, writing it is impossible not to admire»

* Financial Times *

«The book itself is a kind of wandering, and it is hard to say where we get to, but there are good things along the way.»

* Sunday Times *

«Radical, humane, witty, sometimes wonderfully dandyish, at other times, impassioned and serious»

Alain de Botton
