Portrait

Jim Perrin is one of Britain's most highly regarded travel writers and was one of the best British rock-climbers - with many new routes, significant solo ascents and free ascents at the top standards of the day. He is a regular contributor to the Guardian, the Daily Telegraph, Climber, The Great Outdoors and broadcasts regularly on radio. His biography, Menlove, was the first outright winner of the Boardman Tasker Prize, for which all of his subsequent books have been shortlisted. His previous book, Travels with The Flea and Other Eccentric Journeys, was published to critical acclaim in 2002.

Pressestimmen

"A packed and entertaining book ... Exhaustively researched and beautifully written" -- M. John Harrison The Guardian 20050225 "Wonderfully crafted ... One of the most gifted chroniclers of mountaineering ... Perrin records it all with a subtle sympathy, laying bare British mountaineering's most mythologized figure" The Independent 20050225 "An extraordinarily rich and unsentimental vision ... The genius of this exceptional biography is that it articulates both sides of Whillans' character ... It is by turns funny and tragic ... This is a fine book. It was worth the wait" Climb "Compelling, beautifully written ... There could not have been a better writer qualified to tell it" -- Ed Douglas Climber "A kind of modern tragedy ... Yet for all his failings, Whillans remains a legend" Observer
