Somewhere,Nowhere PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Somewhere,Nowhere free pdf This is a very unusual travel book, not least because the writer rarely moves. Sitting under a juniper tree on an undiscovered Greek island, Ben Mallalieu ponders the nature of life and death and the fragility of human achievement. Beautifully written, erudite, profound and often very funny, Somewhere, Nowhere is a memoir of mental landscapes with an uncertain relationship to objective reality- a meditation on what is glimpsed from the corner of the eye. Characters of the landscape - Greek, and various wanderers from around the world - appear and disappear, together with their stories. Delightful descriptions of landscape and flora and fauna, mingled with often very funny intellectual beachcombing.

About Ben Mallalieu

Ben Mallalieu has worked mainly as a freelance editor, writer and designer adding an unappreciated and undeserved veneer of wit and style to an interminable number of magazines. Among these, he has written for the New Statesman, the London Magazine, Lloyd's List (no less), Architects Journal, New Civil Engineer, Arts Review, The Guardian and The Oldie. He was chief sub-editor on The Guardian Travel section, 1999-2009. Between times he lived cheaply in South London devoting several months a year to serious travelling. Latterly he spent ten years as a travel journalist for The Guardian, and says that some of the time he quite enjoyed it. He is happily married with three grown up children, lives on the borders of Hereford and Powys. Educated: Dragon School, Oxford- Abbotsholme School, Derbyshire- Bedford College, London University (BA Hons. History)
