Summary

Lone Fox Dancing —‘Bond casts a benevolent eye on his life and the world around him, and the reader feels that it’s not such a bad place after all!’—The Tribune

‘Lone Fox Dancing is a cosy book, to curl up under the covers with. Like the best of grandpa’s yarns, this story does not handle life with kid gloves. There are monsters in the periphery, there is death and heartbreak; there is also comfort and hope, wonder and delight. Its warmth radiates from the author’s personality. His mellow voice cocoons the reader in a dream of forgotten times and places and people.’—The Telegraph

‘A meditative account of his life, lit up by passages of splendid nature writing and warmed by memories of people, both big and small… In the Epilogue, Bond notes: “The lone fox still dances occasionally, but at eighty-three he is not as agile as he used to be.” But, for his many readers and admirers, even the slow waltz of the fox is a thing of joy.’—The Indian Express

‘Immersing [oneself] in this book has felt like an unexpected and glorious reward for being a Bond reader for many years. It’s the story behind the storyteller…Bond is candid, he’s funny and he’s captivating; revealing the good, the bad and the ugly with brutal honesty. And all of it together makes for a compelling and engrossing read.’— Free Press Journal
