I'm writing a section in my forthcoming book about E.A. Martel. Loads of stuff around by him, of course, and there's a not brilliant biography in French by Casteret. But does anyone here know of any material that sheds any light on Martel the man? Was he, like so many cavers and other explorers - Fritdjof Nansen, for example - a driven obsessive who may well have displayed signs of Autism Spectrum Disorder (aka Asperger's syndrome)? Or was he altogether a moire relaxed kind of dude? Anyone got any clues or references? Cheers!
