Journeys - Jan MorrisOxford University Press, 1985, Paperback ..
Called the "Flaubert of the jet set" by Alistair Cooke, "a champion" by James Michener, and "perhaps the best descriptive writer of our time" by Rebecca West, Jan Morris is without peer among contemporary travel writers. Journeys, her latest book of travel essays, takes us to a series of strikingly diverse locales, some far away and exotic, some familiar. Writing about cities as different as Las Vegas, Aberdeen, and Cetinje, Yugoslavia, Morris describes each place with the same elegance, passion, and wit her readers worldwide have come to expect. 182pp.
