This review is from: Behind The Wall (Paperback)
Colin Thubron writes of places and people using his poet's eye in clear, concise and beautifully constructed English; no travel writer that I know of can hold a candle to him. He is an unashamedly educated writer writing for educated people. There is not a trace of artificiality or artifice in his writing; what he sees and experiences is what you get untinged by any prejudice or bias.
