Regular price $15.50 Sale

'WHAT AM I DOING HERE (the question Rimbaud asked in Ethiopia), because it is more ragged than anything else he wrote, tells us more about him - his interests and friends, if not his passions. He writes of his father, of his friend... Howard Hodgkin, and his tete-a-tetes with Andre Malraux and Nadezhda Mandalstram... Ideally he gets a really bizarre bee in his bonnet, such as a rumour of 'wolf-boy' in India, or a Chinese fengshui geomancer in Hong Kong, or the idea of looking for a Yeti, and he sets off and deals with it. At its most successful his travel is a search for an unholy grail - something freakish, plainly an excuse - and off he goes, and the piece is a winner' Paul Theroux, Telegraph This 2005 Vintage Paperback is in Good condition.
