Patagonia Express

Patagonia Express (Spanish Edition) - Luis SepĂșlveda A very quick reading suggested to everyone who's fascinated by travel literature.

I still haven't put my eyes on the famous Bruce Chatwin's diaries from Patagonia, but the way in which Sepulveda writes about this Englishman is quite sympathetic.
Indeed you can't write anything about Patagonia without quoting Chatwin like a source of inspiration, but Sepulveda flies lower than his predecessor.

Nevertheless in these few pages the Chilean novelist gives us a touching and vivid portrait of several unbelievable characters from this southside of the world.
