Bruce Chatwin was the internet before the internet existed

quote [ Chatwin also had a notoriously liberal relationship with “the truth.” This indeed is one of the aspects of Chatwin’s work with which Herzog feels the deepest kindred. In Chatwin’s “non-fiction” works like In Patagonia and The Songlines, he was often related events that did not in fact happen, or embellishe danthropological details to make them fit his theories more closely. ]

“In Patagonia” was pretty good. Article has deep thoughts, if a bit artsy.
