“We Brits specialise in eccentrics; and they don’t come much more eccentric than Kenneth Wilson. Who on earth would voluntarily (or involuntarily) cycle around Europe with a cello? But Mr Wilson does just that; and his sufferings (and pleasures) are charmingly retold for our enjoyment throughout this highly entertaining book. Mad, yes; but strangely admirable; and as a narrator, Mr Wilson is thoroughly likeable – a truly mellow cello fellow.”Steven Isserlis, CBE, Cellist, Gramophone Hall of Fame, author of The Bach Cello Suites.
“Cycling 3000km over the Alps is a challenge. To do that with a cello, performing every day, and not knowing what might happen, transforms Kenneth’s journey into an adventure.”Alastair Humphreys, author of My Midsummer Morning, Alastair Humphreys’ Great Adventurers, etc.
“Highway Cello is an absolute charmer of a travel book – a personal journey that’ll keep you hooked until the very last page.”Christi Daugherty, author of The Echo Killing and Night School.
“A witty and wonderful account of a remarkable trans-Alpine odyssey to Rome. Heart-warming, inspirational. A powerfully affirmative must-read for anyone interested in what life is really about.”Larry Culliford, author of The Big Book of Wisdom.
“Highway Cello is a rare and strangely joyful read. I guarantee it will stay with you long after you reach the last page; a journey on which you really feel you’ve accompanied the author and his cello, meeting interesting characters and learning new facts about all manner of weird and wonderful things along the way. Highly recommended.”Louise Voss, author of His Other Woman, The Venus Trap, etc.
