About the Author

Colin Thubron is an acknowledged master of travel writing, and the winner of many prizes and awards. His first writing was about the Middle East - Damascus, Lebanon and Cyprus. In 1982 he travelled into the Soviet Union in an ancient Morris Marina, pursued by the KGB, a journey he recorded in Among the Russians. From these early experiences developed his classic travel books- Behind the Wall (winner of the Hawthornden Prize and the Thomas Cook Travel Award), The Lost Heart of Asia, In Siberia (Prix Bouvier) and Shadow of the Silk Road. His most recent book is To a Mountain in Tibet (all available in Vintage). Colin Thubron was President of the Royal Society of Literature from 2010 to 2017.


Thubron returns with what might be his masterpiece... Thubron's prose shines a penetrating light on the nature of memory and being human. Sublime. -- Simon Humphreys * Mail on Sunday *
Intensely moving -- Tim Martin * Sunday Telegraph *
An engrossing, unsettling and brutally beautiful masterpiece. -- John Harding * Daily Mail *
Each life story...is told with all this writer's irresistible narrative gift -- Ursula K. Le Guin * Guardian *
Medicine owes an equal debt of gratitude to him for evoking a journey through the brain with the same adventurous and beguiled spirit as he might a rainforest or ancient city... With the ease of a master craftsman he makes up new words...lovingly evokes the extraordinary places he has passed through... This outstanding novel confirms that there is nowhere Thubron fears to tread. -- Melissa Katsoulis * The Times *
