Spectator Book of the Year

The legendary Jan Morris has named Where the Wild Winds Are as one of her Books of the Year in the Spectator.

'...an example of the trend that has lately encouraged some particularly gifted writers to explore the profounder reaches of travel writing. Hunt’s contribution to the genre has at its epicentre not places at all but winds — five European zephyrs, whose characteristics, styles, legends, beauties and varied awfulnesses he exploits to compelling and entertaining effect.'

What an honour!
