Looking In The Distance celebrates the possibilities that life affords whilst examining how doubts and fears too often paralyse people, especially as they get older. It is a highly personal and meditative work that will inspire whoever reads it, helping us to better understand the different ways in which the human search for wholeness and healing can be approached. As with all his books, Richard Holloway peppers his lively prose with an eclectic selection of writings from poets, philosophers and novelists from around the world and across the centuries. The resulting book presents a brilliantly argued thesis that is both challenging and empowering. Looking In The Distance is accessible, funny, serious, hopefully and heartfelt - a book that will change your life.
