"Wonderful" (The Times)
"Brilliant . . . Go on. Start walking. Get lost. Who knows what you'll find" (Guardian)
"Rebecca Solnit is unquestionably one of the finest non-fiction writers of her generation. Possessed of eloquence and erudition in equal measure, her books have a wonderful capacity to lead the reader on unexpected and intriguing journeys ... As with Solnit's previous books, there is an emotional, even a polemical dimension to these ideas. It is a rare writer who can write so excitingly with both heart and head" (Scotsman)
"Like Simon Schama, Solnit is a cultural historian in the desert-mystic mode, trailing ideas like swarms of butterflies" (Harper’s Magazine)
"Fascinating, inspiring and beautifully written" (George Monbiot)
"Flawless scintillating prose, writing it is impossible not to admire" (Financial Times)
"The book itself is a kind of wandering, and it is hard to say where we get to, but there are good things along the way." (Sunday Times)
"Radical, humane, witty, sometimes wonderfully dandyish, at other times, impassioned and serious" (Alain de Botton) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Solnit's revelatory modern classic exploring philosophy, history, art and metaphysics --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.See all Product description
