Notes & Reviews:
On 6 October 1973 Ted Simon knew there was no going back. He loaded up his 500cc Triumph Tiger in the pouring rain and said goodbye to London. Over four years he rode 64,000 miles round the world. Breakdowns, revolutions, war, a spell in prison, and a Californian commune were all part of his experience, which was colored variously by utter despair and unimaginable joy. He was treated as a spy, a god, a welcome stranger and a curiosity. The extraordinary trip became a journey into his own soul, and for many others it is pure inspiration. Rupert Degas, 'the most versatile of narrators' (The Times), captures all the thrills and spills of Simon's experience and the timeless charm of his writing. Rupert Degas has narrated over 150 audiobooks from authors such as Murakami, Wilde, Conan Doyle, Peake, Stoker, Cormac McCarthy and many more. He has won eight Earphones Awards and has been nominated for several Audies.
