"In All Is Given, Linda Neil tells stories of travel u literal and figurative u that traverse the globe and the self, evoking lyrically the textures of place. With an eye and ear for the small details that capture a moment, she moves from Kathmandu, Paris and Brisbane to London and Bharatpur, imagining place on place, reminded of the scents and sights of one place by their recurrence in another. With remarkable depth and sensuality, Neil's episodic memoir envelops and consumes, transforming time and space until her writing is no longer simply words on a page but lived-in moments in the imagination captivating the reader. This innovative, creative memoir combines vulnerability and courage to scrutinise the self in a bold and vivid way."
