Yet, unlikely as it may seem, this is a remarkably light-hearted, sensitive and funny book. Soms een beetje slordig geschreven, maar een heerlijk document over deze nog levende professor Gobelijn. One of his most important possessions is a jar containing some of the charred remains of a close friend who committed suicide. With a fine sense of the comic and beautifully rendered observations of the people they encounter, Rotthier excels in painting a portrait of this English author as he details the escapades of their journey. In 2004 he won the Bob den Uyl book prize for travel writing for The Qur'an Route. In 2004 he won the Bob den Uyl book prize for travel writing for The Qur'an Route.

I would stand at her grave, holding the gun with both hands--because it's quite heavy--and empty the two magazines into the grave to make sure that she had really snuffed it. O'Hanlon is zonder meer een van de meest fascinerende figuren die ik de laatste jaren op papier en via de televisie heb leren kennen. In his house in Oxfordshire piles of books have spilled over tables and shelves and tottering mounds of dirty crockery obscure the sink. Once on the road, the two men drop in on a number of sites of significance in O'Hanlon's past, with Rotthier doggedly interviewing his companion throughout, and consequently unleashing a tidal wave of stories. In which the chaos of the jungle has made way for a domestic heart of darkness. He took me from behind and fucked me on the spot.

Yet this remains a sensitive, light-hearted and funny book. When O'Hanlon returned, he found nothing left on his shelves but a single volume of Wordsworth, the only one of his books she approved. Rudi Rotthier has written a profile of O'Hanlon and the publishers have clearly decided it will get more attention if thought to be autobiographical. A nice Boswellian moment comes when the pair meet a journalist from the New Yorker and Rotthier realises with a pang of jealousy that O'Hanlon tells the same stories to everybody. Rudi Rotthier is a Flemish journalist and author.

The Fetish Room: The Education Of A Naturalist, By Redmond O'Hanlon & Rudi Rotthier, trans. Jane Hedley

the fetish room ohanlon redmond rotthier rudi hedley prole jane

This one's for confirmed fans of great British eccentric and traveller Redmond O'Hanlon. O'Hanlon provides a stream of jokey anecdotes which offset the bleakness of almost all his memories as do their conversations on God, Darwin and nature. He dreams of books and wakes up angry. It's not just Boy's Own-style adventures; he's also a very skilled writer who knows how to compose for maximum effe This one's for confirmed fans of great British eccentric and traveller Redmond O'Hanlon. The urge to travel has deserted him. I am one more slightly rabid fan of R. A Belgian who lacks Poirot's powers of deduction, he is good at having a beer and listening to some well-honed anecdotes.

The Fetish Room

Author: Rudi Rotthier; Redmond Hanlon; Jane Hedley Prole Publisher: London : Profile Books, 2011. It's clear that the lifelong effects have left him fragile and prone to depression, which makes his adventures all the more remarkable. Yet, unlikely as it may seem, this is a remarkably light-hearted, sensitive and funny book. I have a prized possession - a copy of the 'Borneo' book signed by O'Hanlon, not in a bookshop signing, but as a gift to a friend an ungrateful friend, evidently, who sent it to the old Dillons bookshop in London for their second-hand shelves, where I picked it up. He discovered it was so deep in chicken shit that the chickens 'banged their heads on the ceiling' as they walked around, and the stink was so powerful it even deterred rats. If you don't know his work, I highly recommend it. .

The Fetish Room by Redmond O'Hanlon (ebook)

One reason for his own literary success is that he is that rare thing among travel writers, a genuine naturalist who doesn't just sprinkle his prose with wildlife for local colour. In which the chaos of the jungle has made way for a domestic heart of darkness. He can ask guileless questions about class and family that a British companion might be hesitant about; his persistence in taping some 60 hours of interviews is impressive. Soms een beetje slordig geschreven, maar een heerlijk document over deze nog levende professor Gobelijn. Darwin, O'Hanlon's great hero, spent years after the Beagle wrestling with mental demons and an illness O'Hanlon thinks was psychosomatic.

Yet, unlikely as it may seem, this is a remarkably light-hearted, sensitive and funny book. Rotthier scribed this in a unique approach I found highly enjoyable, and the frankness of this small look into O'Hanlon's life and times was delightful. His books include Congo Journey, Into the Heart of Borneo, In Trouble Again, and Trawler. I said, 'I know where I can rent a. In dit boek reist Rudi Rotthier tien dagen door Engeland met Redmond O'Hanlon: de laatste humanist op aarde met een obsessie voor negentiende-eeuwse wetenschappers en avonturiers.

But Rotthier's approach proves strangely effective. Plagued by depression and scarred by his childhood and sadistic teachers, O'Hanlon drinks excessively, pops caffeine and nicotine pills. The book is quite revealing enough. O'Hanlon provides a stream of jokey anecdotes which offset the bleakness of almost all his memories as do their conversations on God, Darwin and nature. In 2004 he won the Bob den Uyl book prize for travel writing for The Qur'an Route. This is a very odd but also engaging book. O'Hanlon took Bruce Chatwin along to one gathering, who was keen to impress.
