On Chatwin’s Pretending

June 22, 2009

“…A woman in Italy with whom [Bruce] Chatwin used to stay remembers an afternoon when the maid came running downstairs, frightened half to death by the noises coming from Chatwin’s room.

‘Oh, don’t worry’, said the experienced hostess. ‘Bruce is just doing his voices. He’s writing a book.'”

Andrew O’Hagan, ‘Short Cuts’, The London Review of Books 30:22 (20 Nov., 2008): 22.
