by Nicholas Hasluck
ISBN: 9 7817 4008 4406
Somewhere in the Atlas provides a vivid account of journeys undertaken by the author in Papau New Guinea, China, Vietnam and Bolivia. He shows how each of these countries, at a time of transition swerved towards the flow of a changing world.
'To find out where one is at a given moment bears upon the mystery of who one is - or what one may become.'
In the end, these travel pieces, written over 40 years, add up to a memoir of the author's many-sided life and times.
