It is magic - conjuring - of which we never tire: an example of what is called art . . . As a discursive travel book it seems to me in no way inferior to Norman Douglas at his best.Anthony Powell, Punch . . .

Mr. Brooke is a pleasure to read - a highly individual pleasure.G. W. Stonier, New Statesman
