A British climber has fallen from a cliffside in Nepal, and lies inert on a ledge below. Two sherpas kneel at the edge, stand, exchange the odd word, waiting for him to move, to make a decision, to descend. In those minutes, the world opens up to Kathmandu, a sun-bleached beach town on another continent, and the pages of Julius Caesar.

Mountaineering, colonialism, obligation-in Sebastian Martinez Daniell's effortless prose each breath is crystalline, and the whole world is visible from here.
