By: Edward Fox (author)Paperback
More than 4 weeks availability
In 1819 Alexander Csoma de Koros, a Hungarian scholar, set off on a 30-year odyssey in search of his own identity, or rather of the origins of the Magyar people. He ended up in Ladakh, where, through a bizane sequence of events, he found himself decoding the mysteries of Tibetan culture for the British government. The desire to travel, as Edward Fox so deftly illustrates, can be a terrible burden on the soul.
An author and Journalist, Edward Fox was born in New York in 1958 and educated in England. His latest book, Palestine Twilight, will be published in June 2001 by HarperCollins.
