´Raban is, for my money, one of the key writers of the past three decades - not only for his immense stylistic showmanship, but also for the way he has taken that amorphous genre call ´´travel writing´´ and utterly redefined its frontiers... Passage to Juneau is his finest achievement to date. Ostensibly an account of a voyage Raban took from his new home in Seattle to the Alaskan capital through that labyrinthine sea route called the Inside Passage, it is, in essence, a book about the nature of loss.... You close this extraordinary book marvelling at this most distressing but commonplace of ironies. He´s home, but he´s lost. Just like the rest of us´ Douglas Kennedy, Independent. ´This is an extraordinary book... The epic journey through eddies, rips, whirlpools and various other marine terrors quickly becomes intensely personal... Passage to Juneau is far more than a meditation on the sea and its meanings; it is also an unsparing self-examination, written with mordant humour and forensic ruthlessness´ Justin Cartwright, Daily Telegraph ´A thrilling adventure and a telling internal exploration.... the writing contains natural description of breathtaking exactness.... and the sea itself - in all its moods - has surely never been so intricately painted´ Edward Marriott, Evening Standard ´His erudition is enormous, his prose as beautiful and clear as the blue ocean on a crisp morning and his sense of joy at having found his place in the world is immensely rewarding. Passage through Juneau is a wonderfully fluid read. It is also a thought-provoking and challenging work that is likely to splash around in the memory long after the volume has been consigned to the shelf´.
