In this personal selection of stories and travelogues, Chatwin reveals part of himself as he looks at the world populated by the wise, the misguided, the beautiful and the bizarre. It follows his view of the world through situations; he abandoned his job to pursue his passion for world travel. Bruce Chatwin's last novel "Utz" was shortlisted for the 1988 Booker fiction prize. He has also written "The Viceroy of Ouidah" and "On the Black Hill", both of which were made into films. His "In Patagonia" won the Hawthornden Prize and the E.M.Forster Award.

Bruce Chatwin

Charles Bruce Chitin was an English travel writer, novelist and journalist. His first book, In Patagonia (1977), established Chatwin as a travel writer, although he considered himself instead a storyteller, interested in bringing to light unusual tales.

He won the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for his novel On the Black Hill (1982), while his novel Utz (1988) was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

In 2008, the Times ranked Chatwin as number 46 on their list of "50 Greatest British Writers Since 1945."
