I'm really happy to have an article in Issue 4 of Traverse magazine, from Australia. Recently, I found a long letter I'd written to my mother when I was leaving Australia and here it is.
"Reading this book, I was genuinely alarmed by the dangers and near misses that Furneaux faced. Even more alarming is how she casually narrates these episodes to her readers.
