Reviews

Clare's extraordinary and mesmerising odyssey following the migration of the swallow from South Africa to South Wales -- Annabel Goldie * Herald *
A gifted and lyrical travel writer * Financial Times *
The author deploys some fine lyrical writing and a gift for inventive, unexpected metaphor ... Clare's other great asset is his brave, modern, multicultural and open-hearted approach to travel itself -- Mark Cocker * Guardian *
Fizzingly entertaining. His own prose has something of their flight: daring, sharp-edged, fast-moving, graceful, full of surprises. This is a great adventure, thrillingly realised -- Tom Fort * Literary Review *
Remarkably insightful and entertaining, with Clare proving himself to be the most enthusiastic, open-minded, intelligent and incorrigibly romantic of travellers * Mail on Sunday *
