A Visit to Don Otavio

(1960)
A Traveller's Tale from Mexico
A non fiction book by

 

"A book of marvels, to be read again and again and again."
Bruce Chatwin


This affectionate study of the Mexican temper is "one of the most charming travel books ever written." --The Atlantic Monthly

Before returning to the Old World after World War II, Sybille Bedford resolved to see something more of the New. "I had a great longing to move," she said, "to hear another language, eat new food, to be in a country with a long nasty history in the past and as little present history as possible." And so she set out for Mexico--and, incidentally, to write what Bruce Chatwin called the best travel book of the twentieth century, "a book of marvels, to be read again and again and again."
