A collection of short essays - many are excerpts from longer published works - by a selection of excellent 'known' travel authors. Or, at least, writers about travel, for some of the accounts are fictional. The themes are difficulty and discomfort, sometimes outright life-threatening, without which travel writing would hold little appeal to most of us.
Obviously a sampler like this cannot possibly hold your attention in the same way as a sustained work by one hand, but it is diverting enough (especially for killing time in a succession of planes and airport transit lounges, on a trip of one's own) and a splendid means to discover new authors and writing styles which appeal.
Look and Feel: My copy is a resiliently bound paperback; there are no photographs or other illustrations.
