Jan Morris

Publisher: W. W. Norton & CompanyFormat: Paperback

The first book to distill Jan Morris's entire body of work into one volume, “The World” is a magnum opus by the most-celebrated travel writer in the world.

A breathtakingly vivid guide to our greatest cosmopolitan cities and cultures from Manhattan to Venice and from Baghdad to Barbados, this book assembles fifty years of Morris's finest travel writing. With eyewitness accounts of such seminal moments as the first successful ascent of Everest, the Eichmann trial, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the handover of Hong Kong, “The World” promises to create an entirely new generation of Jan Morris readers. A “San Francisco Chronicle” Best Book of 2003.
