Contains ten essays that brilliantly recapture the essence of places as diverse as Washington just after Watergate, Delhi under Mrs. Gandhi, Panama, Los Angeles, Southern Africa, London, Cairo at the time of the Israeli-Egyptian talks, Istanbul, Trieste, and Manhattan.
Jan Morris, hailed by Rebecca West as 'perhaps the best descriptive writer of our times', and by Alastair Cooke as the 'Flaubert of the jet age', is the author of numerous best-selling works on places, travel, and history.
