Bruce Chatwin's death from AIDS in 1989 brought a meteroic career to an abrupt end. His reputation as a storyteller has grown over the last decade, and his exquisite, subtle texts continue to inspire readers all over the world.
In 1991, Nicholas Shakespeare was given unrestricted access to Chatwin's private notebooks, diaries and letters. Across five continents he has gathered evidence from Chatwin's peers, his friends, his family, his hosts, his enemies and his lovers. Looking for the Chatwin behind the masks, he has written the definitive biography of one of the most charismatic and elusive literary figures of our time.
