Finished reading (2002): A Pelican in the Wilderness: Hermits and Solitaries by Isabel Colegate 📚

A fascinating exploration of solitude, written, I think, in something quite close to the historical-travelogue voice of Rebecca West’s Black Lamb and Grey Falcon.

An excerpt, and an example of that voice in Colegate, can be read here. And for one of the best, but lengthy, examples of West, here.
