From Our Editors

An elegy for the lost art of travel-as opposed to today's tourism-Abroad is also a celebration of the British writers who memorialized the years between the two world wars as the last great age of travel.

Editorial Reviews

"[A] witty book that bristles with outrageous assertions....Fussell obviously enjoys the act of writing about his reading, which is what makes the book so lively."--The Tribune (London)
