Still reading Laurens van der Post’s autobiographical/travelogue classic of a book. The words are strung together so beautifully and the images painted are so vivid that they’re a bit too much to take in all at once. There is also a deep well of meaning that lies beneath the text that requires patience to draw out. The book really resonates with me; I feel as though I’m Post, travelling back to his motherland. A highly recommended read to travellers, lost souls and physically displaced.
