"His greatest book, Mani, was about a journey through that little-known and, at the time, archaic region.[He] traveled simply, staying with fishermen and farmers, which enabled him to capture the essence of the region.Almost every page has its own literary tour de force, often with intimidating displays of learning and research mixed with fantasy, imagination and acute descriptions of the scene itself"
