Thrilling journey thorugh the eccentric willderness, 2 Feb. 2012
As someone who already has an interest in the eccentric among us, I thoroughly enjoyed this insightful and often humorous tale of a man in search of some of the UK's most intriguing characters.
What I like most is the writer's completely non-judgemental approach to the people he encounters and his genuine enthusiasm towards the subject area. The book also asks questions about what it means to be eccentric in the modern world and how the term has evolved over time.
A wonderful scattering of drawings throughout the book help to depict each character, making their presence ever more visceral and alive.
Highly recommended reading.
