• Thubron writes very well indeed... He carries with him the talisman of erudition combined with intuition

    Daily Telegraph
  • Purchased by blistered and bleeding feet, this picture is extraordinarily detailed and vivid... An accomplished linguist and historian, his passionate concern for antiquity in all its aspects - mythological, architectural, conceptual - lends weight and warmth to every chapter

    Financial Times
  • Colin Thubron is in a class of his own

  • Most memorable and full of insight

    Lawrence Durrell
