Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Did you read Beryl Markham’s book, West with the Night?…She has written so well, and marvelously well, that I was completely ashamed of myself as a writer…I wish you would get it and read it because it is really a bloody wonderful book.” Ernest Hemingway, in a letter to Maxwell Perkins
“Much more than a pilot’s memoir, West with the Night is a wise, funny, and inspiring exploration of a life well lived.” Nation

She spent her childhood playing with native Maruni children and apprenticing with her father as a trainer and breeder of racehorses.
