Man of the World


From Chatwin Books comes Layne Maheu’s long-awaited second novel, Man of the World. His breakthrough tale of romance and life at the edge in early aviation is based on the real-life—and larger-than-life—escapades of dashing and aristocratic adventurer Hubert Latham, first man to attempt crossing the English Channel in a heavier-than-air flying machine. 

Set in gorgeous Belle Epoque France in 1908, and told through the eyes of Latham's young apprentice, the book blends the mad risks of early flight with the passion and heartbreak Latham shared with Antoinette, the namesake of his signature aeroplane and beloved daughter of his main financier.

Man of the World will be released in November, 2019 and is available for pre-order.
