Exotic Excursions
In these stories Anthony Nanson charts the territory between travel writing
and magic realism to confront the exotic and the enigmatic. Here are
epiphanies of solitude, twilight and initiation. A lover’s true self unveiled by a
mountain mist … a memory of the lost land in the western sea … a traveller’s
surrender to the allure of ancient gods … a quest for primeval beings on the
edge of extinction. In transcending the line between the written and the
spoken word, between the familiar and the unfamiliar, between the actual
and the imagined, these tales send sparks across the gap of desire.
“He is a masterful storyteller, and his prose is delightful to read … His sheer
technical ability makes my bones rattle with joy … He is simply one of the
most able writers I know” - Mimi Thebo
“This is quite simply superb. His love of language and artistry with words is
interwoven with plots which immediately engage the reader.” - Vivien Meath,
Clitheroe Advertiser & Times
"a vital collection, varied, but with a consistency of recurring concerns" -
