MEMOIRS OF A VAGABOND

"Meeting people and listening to them means finding and creating a home everywhere."

Reviews:

"These are travel impressions with strongly subjective commentary: she probes, call things into question, avoiding deftly any hint of post-colonialism, presenting the reader with her encounters.
~Nils Jensen

"...Beatrix Kramlovsky has long since made a name for herself as a writer of crime fiction, but here she indulges in her passion for travel in a voice that is often quiet but always extremely observant... She writes of foreign cultures and curiosities with a candor that is sensitive; she poses questions, draws comparisons. Interspersed are ink drawings that point to her second passion, that of art. ...Many passages call to mind Bruce Chatwin and a profession that has become rare - travel literature in the sense of those splendid, memorable descriptions that transcend any travel guide and are literature of the finest kind..."
