None of these authors has the real travel writer's eye of, say, Norman Lewis or Paul Theroux, who travel because they must, nor their capacity to come home with marvellous tales. There is no story because their holidays never engage with the place. Peregrine Hodson and Dennis Hills, however, are writers with no ticket back.
Speaking fluent Japanese, working for a European bank, Hodson was shipped off by his company to beat the foreigners at their own game, to get their cash. His love affair with Japan, paralleled by a love affair with a Japanese woman, gradually possesses him as his personality disintegrates and fractures beneath his increasing Japaneseness.

Hills, a contemporary of Enoch Powell at school in Birmingham after the First World War, is like a character from an Evelyn Waugh novel, the chap who always turns up: in Romania at the outbreak of the Second World War, with Olivia Manning and Reggie Smith; at Monte Cassino; helping surrender the Cossacks to Stalin; and in Uganda during the Seventies, where he offended Idi Amin, was sentenced to death and had to be rescued by a flying visit from Callaghan, then Foreign Secretary.
He is a natural exile and adventurer, one of life's great troublemakers, rarely touching base back in England and only writing a book when he has something interesting to say. Pull up the chair, throw another log on the fire and another splash of Johnny Walker in the tumbler and read.

First UK edition, first impression of the author's 6th book. A fine book: pristine red cloth covers, sharp corners, clean and unmarked a tiny bit of scattered, faint foxing on the pastedowns and endsheets - barely noticeable , in a fine dustjacket: unfaded, uncreased and unclipped, showing very little, if any, visible wear. There is some scattered foxing, mostly on the verso not visible from the front and a tiny bit on the rear flap. This book is in my possession and will go out very shortly after it is ordered. Anthony Daniels, is, by the way if you haven't read him is in the top rank of travel writers.
An uncommon book these days!. Seller Inventory T
