Description - Somewhere Else by Charles Rangeley-Wilson
Somewhere Else is a thousand miles away and right next-door. It's a place and state of mind. It's the Himalayan foothills of Bhutan where trout - coal-backed relics of a place misty and Celtic - rise to bright insects under bamboo; it's London's suburbs where rivers run municipal fountains, but in a brook in a garden-centre there is hope in fishy form; it's a phone box in a field on the Lesotho border; it's getting away from calls at night about double glazing; it's the raw feeling of being pushed up against another place. A journey to somewhere else can change you, and perhaps change is the measure of the journey. In fourteen beautifully crafted stories Rangely-Wilson takes us fly-fishing around the world, from the Canadian forest to upland Croatia, from the Scottish islands to the suburbs of London, always journeying into the heart of the landscape to meet ordinary, extraordinary people. Somewhere Else is a book about escaping from what you think you know, to find out how things really are.
