The word’s out on ‘Outpost’

A review I wrote some time ago appeared in The Daily Telegraph at the weekend, as if it had been sent by hand from some far-flung place, got lost along the way and finally surfaced. Maybe that was appropriate, for the review was of Outpost by Dan Richards (Canongate), a sprightly tour of staging posts — from the bothy to the writer’s retreat and the fire lookout tower — and the thresholds they mark, both on the ground and in the head. It’s online on the Telegraph site, and you can also find it here on Deskbound Traveller.
