'He is that rarest of phenomena, a scientist and an artist, and his method is to combine scientific rigour with artistic reverie in a seamless blend that both informs and delights.' John Banville, Guardian 'Will endure into the far future . . . He knows this world as no one else does, and writes about it with awe and love, but also with measured grace, and artist's eye and a scientist's sensibility.' Colm Toibin, Sunday Business Post Books of the Year 'Robinson is a marvel . . . the supreme practitioner of geo-graphy, the writing of places.' Fintan O'Toole, Observer Books of the Year 'Breathtaking . . . the West of Ireland has found its ultimate laureate.' Patricia Craig, TLS 'Tim Robinson is the Proust of the western seaboard, a Ruskin of the isles.' Brain Dillon, New Statesman 'he is the nearest thing we have to a living legend, this side of Famous Seamus - one of the few people from our world whose name will still be known a century on.' Manchan Magan, Irish Times
