Tour.


"The greatest living writer in America is Peter Matthiessen... A writer of awesome range and profundity, a philosopher and stylist, he is a literary prophet who has changed the way Americans- and others- view the world" (Rosemary Goring Scotland on Sunday)

"With this second volume of the Watson trilogy, it's apparent that Matthiessen is engaged in one of the grand projects of contemporary literature" (Thomas Christensen San Francisco Examiner)

"A great writer, one of America's best" (Paul Watkins Literary Review)

"The novel has great strengths, the impossible quest for the truth about Ed Watson is a deeper quest for continuity between man and landscape- a truly unattainable goad; and this gives the novel poignancy" (Daily Telegraph)
