4 - 6 days availability
Isabelle Eberhardt (1877-1904) was born the daughter of a Russian emigres and raised in a climate of aristocratic anarchism. She reinvented herself as a desert Arab and a devout Muslim. She was a woman who preferred dressing like a boy and whose adventures - as a mystic, a connoiser of drugs, and a rumoured participant in sexual orgies - scandalised Europeans at the turn of the century. During her brief life she was a source of worried speculation to the French authorities in North Africa. After her death she became a legend: 'the amazon of the Sahara'.
Annette Kobak was born in London, studied modern languages at Cambridge, and has translated Isabelle Eberhardt's only complete novel, VAGABOND, and presented her own series, The Art of Travel. She has chaired the Cheltenham Festival for the past three years.
