The Light Garden of the Angel King: Travels in Afghanistan With Bruce Chatwin


In 1970, Peter Levi—classical scholar, archaeologist, and poet—set off with Bruce Chatwin in search of the classical heritage of Afghanistan. Greek conquerors, Buddhist monks, Moghul emperors, doomed British soldiers—all have traveled Afghanistan, one of the great crossroads of history. This classic work, written prior to the Soviet invasion, is now reissued with fresh photographs from the Chatwin archives as well as a new introduction in which Peter Levi looks back on a bygone Afghanistan and on his friendship with the young Chatwin.
