About Redmond O'Hanlon

Redmond O'Hanlon - Into the Heart of Borneo
A fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Royal Society of Literature, Redmond O’Hanlon was the natural history editor of The Times Literary Supplement for fifteen years. He lives near Oxford, England, with his wife and their two children. “Among contemporary travel writers,” according to The Washington Post, “he has the best nose for the globe’s precious few remaining blank spots . . . Long may he trudge and paddle.”

The following books by O’Hanlon are available in Vintage paperback:

Into the Heart of Borneo
“A learned and sensitive book as well as a knockabout farce.” –The New York Review of Books

In Trouble Again: A Journey Between the Orinoco and the Amazon
“When Evelyn Waugh . . . and Graham Greene traveled, the going was still rough . . . Redmond O’Hanlon, hacking his way up an unmapped tributary of the Amazon, fearful (and not without good reason) of ending his days in someone’s cooking pot, has managed to keep that tradition alive.” –Jonathan Raban

No Mercy: A Journey into the Heart of the Congo
“Old-fashioned, gut-wrenching, real-life adventure . . . As much an inner journey that explores fear, religion, magic and childhood as it is a dangerous trek into the depths of the jungle.” –Time
