Reviews

[H]is descriptions of desert landscapes can be extraordinary. You can almost feel the dry gusts turning Malusa's lips into cracked leather. --NY Times Book Review

Malusa's intrepid curiosity enlivens his over-the-road tales. --Booklist

It's unlikely that biking to the lowest places on Earth will earn him a mention in history books. But he is a great storyteller. --Globe and Mail
