Genius is no stranger to the work of Kathleen Jamie, whose finely poised writing and subtly profound sensibility have made her such an artisan of the human heart. (Scotsman)
What is ultimately most impressive is the energy, good humour and panache with which Jamie's language rises to the variety of its occasions. (Patrick Crotty Times Literary Supplement)
A beautifully crafted account... the power of Jamie's prose is spare but magical. She writes tenderly but without sentimentality. Should be required reading. (Daily Telegraph)
A wonderfully sensual study of the land and its people which feels more timeless than topical (Observer)
Kathleen Jamie's prose writing is utterly luminous, as you'd expect from her poetry, but Among Muslims (Sort of Books) is much more than a well-written travel book, and its insights are even more urgent in the light of the dangerous and criminal crudity of President Bush's approach to the region (Independent on Sunday Book of the Year Choice 2002)
This eloquent tale with its plea for understanding and tolerance couldn't have been better timed. (Sunday Times)
It is her beautiful prose, drawn from a rural Scottish palate, that really illuminates the book - a wonderfully sensual study of the land and its people which feels more topical than timeless. (Observer)
A better emissary to the Karakoram could not be imagined. She displays a deep warmth unemcumbered by illusion. (Scotland on Sunday)
Illuminated throughout with a vision that sees beneath surfaces. To share a journey such as this is an enriching experience. (Norman Lewis)
Kathleen Jamie studied philosophy at Edinburgh University. She won an Eric Gregory Award at nineteen and has published four volumes of poetry.
Excellent book, as are all Kathleen Jamie's. Could nt wait to sit down every evening and catch up on her travels. Wonderful to read at a time when intolerance is on the rise. Read morePublished 9 months ago by M Tucker
Jamie is a thoughtful and incisive writer, whose style is easy to read, almost conversational. I loved her picture of her time in Pakistan. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Johnston
