Info

Once in a while a travel book comes along that pushes at the boundaries of the genre. Quondam: Travels in a Once World is exactly that, a book that asks us to re-imagine the relevance and potential of journeying —an epic, true-grit expedition by bike through the heart of Africa, and without the apron strings of technology, when being on your own meant exactly that.
John Devoy’s imaginative, captivating style has won the admiration of legendary travel writers Dervla Murphy ‘. . .an impressive saga. . .’ and Ted Simon ‘. . .an overwhelmingly rich story, like repeatedly pushing the plus sign on a Google map watching blank areas spring to life in ever denser detail.’
This celebratory event, invites special guest and author to share this book with the public and opens up opportunity for discussion. Signed copies of the book will be available to purchase on the evening.
