LOST OA­SIS: IN SEARCH OF PAR­ADISE Robert Twig­ger Wei­den­feld & Ni­col­son, £16.99

The Herald - Arts - - Books -

Robert Twig­ger sets out on a jour­ney to lo­cate the lost oa­sis of Zezura, a re­port­edly lush, ver­dant val­ley home to flocks of mag­nif­i­cent and rare birds and even rarer hordes of trea­sure. When Twig­ger de­cides to re­lo­cate his fam­ily for a new life in Cairo, he es­capes to the Sa­hara desert in hope of des­o­late beauty and ad­ven­ture. Armed with plenty of wa­ter, a wooden cart and his hap­less com­pan­ion Ozman, he goes deep into the desert in the foot­steps of sea­soned ex­plor­ers, car­ry­ing on where they had left off.
