EPIC JOURNEYS: COLIN THUBRON

SUNDAY 17 MAY – 2.30-3.30PM

KIRI TE KANAWA THEATRE, AOTEA CENTRE

Ranked by The Times as one of the 50 greatest post-war British writers, veteran travel writer and accomplished novelist Colin Thubron continues to venture intrepidly to parts of the map which for most remain back-of-beyond. Thubron has humanised locations, particularly Russia and China, in some 15 atmospheric books: his first was Mirror to Damascus (1967); during the Brezhnev era he drove across the Soviet Union, pursued by the KGB, and published Among the Russians (1982); for Shadow of the Silk Road, recently republished as a Vintage Classic and hailed as a masterpiece by reviewers Robert Macfarlane and Sara Wheeler, he travelled for eight months along the ancient trade route connecting China to the Mediterranean, talking to Hunan traders, Uzbek sex-workers, and Kurdish Turks. He discusses his life adventures and writing escapades with Catriona Ferguson.
