The Beautiful Obscure
'This book spoke to my heart. An outsider's love letter to a people and their way of life... a rich palimpsest of ideas and episodes and tumbling phrases. A country, a culture, a life, all intertwined - who could ask for more?' - Nicolas Rothwell
The cover image of The Beautiful Obscure shows a detail from Joachim Patinir, El paso de la laguna Estigia (Charon crossing the Styx), 1520-1524. Madrid, Museo del Prado.
