My Wounded Shoes
Hay Festival 1996
We follow the dangerous trail of the French poet and traveller Arthur Rimbaud - the teenage author of A Season in Hell, the enigmatic trader and gun-runner in Africa, the lover and destroyer of Valerie. Nicholl previews his forthcoming book on Rimbaud with an idiosyncratic account of the poet's extraordinary life, told largely through Rimbaud's own words. Nicholl's books include The Fruit Palace, Borderlines, his award-winning investigation of Christopher Marlowe The Reckoning and The Creature in the Map.
