Art of Patience

Seeking the Snow Leopard in Tibet

«

‘I found it hard to resist… there is so much more to this elegantly written book than the story of a search. It is also a philosophical consideration of the benefits of silence, waiting and personal reflection; an ode to the psychological effect of natural beauty; and a poetic eulogy to the planet.’

‘[One of] the best books of the year.’

<i>Financial Times</i> on <i>Consolations of the Forest</i>

«

‘I thought I’d rip through this book. But it’s not something you want to read fast. Tesson, who I came to like more and more, is trying to rearrange his relationship with time. Being alone, miles from anywhere, encourages him to sit still and watch things.’

»

<i>Spectator</i> on <i>Consolations of the Forest</i>

«

‘He comes across as the brainiest, daftest, sternest, funniest, most companionable hermit you'll ever meet.’

»

<i>Guardian</i> on <i>Consolations of the Forest</i>

«

‘Beautifully written, beautifully translated, intensely moving and totally absorbing.’

»

Stanley Johnson, author of <i>Where the Wild Things Were</i>

«‘In The Art of Patience: Seeking the Snow Leopard in Tibet, the French writer Sylvain Tesson chronicles his rapturous journey through Tibet’s Chantang plateau with the wildlife photographer Vincent Munier. Tesson’s words, in a ravishing translation by Frank Wynne, paint pictures as vivid as any photograph.’»

Liesl Schillinger, <i>New York Times</i>, 'Best Books of 2021', Travel

«

‘Tesson is a transcendent travel writer… [The Art of Patience] inspires action, thought, silence – and perhaps also prayer.’

»

<i>BBC Countryfile Magazine</i>, Best Books of 2021

«

‘A wonderful evocation of waiting and watching for nature.’

»

Tim Birkhead, author of <i>Bird Sense</i>

«

The Art of Patience is extraordinarily beautiful, a narrative of prose that flows with poetry, a long last loving glance at the planet, a visit to the vital bedside of a living world determined to stay alive.’

»

Carl Safina, author of <i>Becoming Wild: How Animals Learn to be Animals</i>
