Product description


As travel journalists go, Kalder is pretty much the Anti-Palin, scouring obscure locations for excentrics, malcontents and lunatics ... Thoughful and funny. -- Esquire

Kalder is not only an excellent writer, with a vivid turn of phrase, but a sympathetic one: his concern is to ounderstand his subjects rather than exploit them ... his insight and skilful writing keeps you reading. -- Daily Telegraph

Kalder's vivid, witty and sometimes poetic prose describes encounters with wonderful and frightening characters ... Kalder shows a cosmopolitan curiosity and a sense of adventure ... and confirms the exciting talent revealed in his Lost Cosmonaut. -- Scotland on Sunday

Writing that is vibrant and dynamic and which rolls along taking the reader with it. His observations, witty and biting, are spot-on in relation to people and to places. -- Irish Times

a fine guide to a world that will be totally alien to most readers. He writes with incredible energy ... highly successful throughout ... Laid-back, unpretentious delivery, occasional interludes, postcards and posed pictures next to the new Messiah - all combine to make an impressive, unlikely whole. -- Scottish Review of Books

Book Description

Strange Telescopes by Daniel Kalder is a hilariously weird, witty and unique travelogue from a dedicated 'antitourist', and author of Lost Cosmonaut.

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
