So It Goes – Travels in the Aran Isles, Xian and places in between by Nicolas Bouvier
This collection of essays begins with a river and the road beside it, that “winds without rhyme or reason where it could run straight” .
Together they set the compass for Nicolas Bouvier’s meander beside people and their places, with moments picked out like glistening pebbles.
This book is a mixture of diary entries, and complete articles – a kaleidoscope of places, and people, some observed through history and others picked out in sharp, every day detail. I loved it.
