Detailed Product Description
UK, 2012, 1st edition. 388 pp, hundreds of b/w and color photos. Large format Hardcover with dust jacket. Fine.

This is a heavy, large format book. Extra postage will be requested for Priority Mail and Foreign Mail.

The master storyteller, Jim Curran, has finally produced the biggest story he can tell. For readers of his previous books it is full of surprises, conundrums and split lives. Teaching in Bristol during the week, he lived a different life in Sheffield at weekends. A teacher of art, he developed a career as a mountaineering filmmaker before realizing that he'd always wanted to be a painter.
 
And this great humorist turns out to be an intermittent sufferer from depression. The warmest of people, as his characterization of his friends here demonstrates, he reveals a strand of loneliness throughout his life. By turns this book is hilarious and heart-breaking, anecdotal and reflective, sociable and self-doubting. Its drive for honesty is as unwavering as its eye for a self-deflating story. As a rigorous self-portrait its impact lingers beyond the words, the pencil and the paint.
 
Jim Curran has climbed worldwide for exactly half a century with many of the leading lights of mountaineering - Chris Bonington, Joe Brown, Doug Scott, Alan Rouse. He is an artist, mountaineer, author and filmmaker. He has visited the Himalaya 15 times and written seven books. Both books and films have won many awards at festivals worldwide and in 1997 he was awarded an Emmy for outstanding camerawork. Jim has had exhibitions of his paintings at The Alpine Club in London and at The Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal and has been shortlisted five times for the prestigious Boardman Tasker Award for Mountain Literature.
 
He won The Yorkshire Post Book of the Year Award in 2002 and Best Book on Non-Fiction at the Banff Mountain Book Festival in Canada in 1995. In this autobiography Jim Curran tells the story of two great loves of his life, mountains and art. In 'Here, There and Everywhere'...he travels to many of the world's great ranges describing a life climbing, filming and writing about them. This is in contrast with a long commitment to art education in Rotherham and Bristol.

Jim Curran can wring humor out of even the most harrowing situations and yet is not afraid to express his grief at the loss of so many of his close friends. In particular, he revisits the K2 tragedy in 1986, when 13 climbers perished on the mountain, giving rise to controversies which have never been resolved. He writes frankly of his personal life revealing that he suffers from depression and even here the humour is not far away. The book is a celebration of a life lived to the full. Jim Curran lives in Sheffield on the edge of his beloved Peak District.

Foreword by Ed Douglas. Appraisal of the paintings by Julie Summers. Shortlisted for the 2012 Boardman Tasker Award.
