Recensioner i media
"A good story... a fitting memorial" * Observer * "A fascinating story of a man trying to outrun the social upheavals of the twentieth century" * Herald * "Wheeler has made excellent use of the sources at hand... Moreover, Wheeler writes well, and has a gift - shared by only very few - for pinning down the smells and atmosphere of the African landscape" * Literary Review * "She dazzles the reader with an evocation of time and place.. her description of the east Africa Campaign is detailed and enthralling" -- Keith Dovkants * Scotsman * "She writes beautifully, with a vivid turn of phrase, a sound grasp of history and an impish humour" -- Andrew Lycett * Sunday Times *
Bloggat om Too Close To The Sun
Sara Wheeler's books include the international bestseller Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica, of which the Telegraph reviewer wrote, `I do not think there will ever be a better book on the Antarctic.' The Magnetic North: Notes from the Arctic Circle, was chosen as Book of the Year by Will Self, Michael Palin, A. N. Wilson and others. She has published two biographies of travellers: Cherry: A Life of Apsley Cherry-Garrard, and Too Close to the Sun: The Life and Times of Denys Finch Hatton, and was immensely relieved to write about women at last in O My America!. She lives in London.
