VINTAGE VOYAGES- A world of journeys, from the tallest mountains to the depths of the mind What begins as the record of a journey on foot through coastal East Anglia becomes the great, constellated story of people and cultures past and present- of Chateaubriand, Thomas Browne, Swinburne and Conrad, of fishing fleets, skulls and silkworms. A rich meditation on the past via a melancholy trip along the Suffolk coast, The Rings of Saturn is an intricately patterned and haunting book on the transience of all things human.
