Product description


"[A] fascinating book ... Tom Feiling packs his intriguing tale with period detail and colourful anecdotes" --New Internationalist

"A fascinating story with an extraordinarily exotic cast of characters." -- Andrew Marr

"[A] quite remarkable story. Far from England's shores, Feiling paints a vivid and entertaining picture of Caribbean and Central American exploration... engaging and... fascinating." -- Geographical

"'Feiling wants us to reflect on the lasting scars of its colonial heritage and our complicity in some of its present difficulties. His book, then, winds up being that most Puritan of things, a call to conscience." --Travis Elborough, The Spectator

"The Island that Disappeared is to be celebrated as a triumph… Tom Feiling has captured humanity in all its guises and in doing so has held up a mirror to the politics and culture we are shaping today. This book is an absolute gem and not to be missed." - The Bookbag

"A hidden history, a forgotten island, an engaging author... nothing could be finer." --Dr Sam Willis, author and presenter: 'Britain's Armed History', 'Britain's Outlaws', 'Shipwrecks'

"A superb job and the interweaving of past and (personal) present works brilliantly... the reader is richly rewarded." --Dervla Murphy, author, Full Tilt: Ireland to India With a Bicycle and Between River and Sea: Encounters in Israel and Palestine

About the Author

Tom Feiling is a writer, journalist and award-winning documentary filmmaker and the author of two highly acclaimed books The Candy Machine: How Cocaine Took Over The World (Penguin, 2009) which was based on over 60 interviews with those involved in all aspects of the cocaine business and Short Walks from Bogota: Journeys in the New Columbia (Penguin, 2013), a travelogue exploring that country's culture, history and politics.
