Robyn Davidson Profile

Robyn Davidson, author of the travel memoir Tracks, is profiled in "The Age" by Jane Sullivan.

Davidson doesn't like categorising herself at all: she hates being called a travel writer and is not even keen to call herself any kind of writer. 'I'm not one of those true writers who can't bear not to be writing. Yet it's one of the most important things in my life.'

She is full of writing and travelling plans for the future: to get back to her memoir; to work on a larger book about nomads; to revisit Tibet and stay in a monastery; to follow up a story from the tiny kingdom of Mustang at the tip of Nepal.

Davidson is also the author of the new "Quarterly Essay" No Fixed Address. You can read an extract from the essay on the website - it's a PDF file.
