by Jan Morris - £12.99 Faber and Faber (2004)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780571215256 | ISBN 10: 0571215254
In a wonderfully evocative collection of her travel writing and reportage from over five decades, Jan Morris has produced a unique portrait of the late twentieth century - from New York to Venice, from the first ascent of Everest to the fall of the Berlin Wall.
"A reminder of just how entertaining, how informative and how thought-provoking a restless, inquisitive, experienced writer can be."
(Anthony Sattin, Sunday Times)
"Wherever Morris goes, she brings a sharp, impassioned yet subtle eye, and an inexhaustible love of adventure... There are few better ways to see the world than in her company."
(Ann Wroe, Daily Telegraph)
