Raffles, The Book of Unconformities

“What intuition the book requires, what detective work — and what magic tricks it performs. Stones speak, lost time leaves a literal record and, strangest of all, the consolation the writer seeks in the permanence of rocks, in their vast history, he finds instead in their vulnerability, caprice and still-unfolding story.” A wonderful review of the long-awaited new book by Hugh Raffles.
