Summary
Clapp has captured the intense energy and chameleon-like complexity of this original and contradictory figure. A bisexual of arresting beauty, Chatwin loved to perform for an audience, to dazzle and seduce with talk, tales and outlandish facts. He was a fine-art expert who could spot a fake as well as a great original, and his eye earned him the reputation of an aesthete. But Chatwin was always pleased to rough it, travelling to the most far-flung and exotic landscapes, whether it was Tibet, Mali, Gabon, Sudan, China or South America. He has been compared to T.E. Lawrence, Robert Louis Stevenson and Arthur Rimbaud.--From publisher description
