About this book

Part biography, part musings on biology and nature, this book is a moving portrait of one of the greatest travel writers and eccentrics, Redmond O'Hanlon.

O'Hanlon is renowned as an amiable anti-hero and debunker of classical exploration literature. On this joint road trip with journalist Rudi Rotthier, he visits places from his dark childhood, rendering observations of the people they encounter along the way and creating, as unlikely as it may seem, a remarkably light-hearted, sensitive and funny book.
