9780195056624: Among the Cities (Oxford Paperbacks)
From the Publisher:

'Years and years ago, observing that nobody in the history of man had ever seen and described the entire urban world, I resolved to do it myself ...' It was thirty years later, standing in the great square in Beijing, that Jan Morris realized that she had achieved her extraordinary ambition. Among the Cities (1985) is a magnificent collection which presents her personal selection of travel pieces, with definitive evocations of places as different as Alexandria and Bath, Warsaw and Wyoming. Whether she is describing Beirut before the lights went out, the cloying charms of Vienna ('no place for a Welsh republican'), the dream-world of Kashmir or the 'impending euphoria of Rio de Janeiro, Jan Morris never leaves us in doubt that she is one of the greatest travel writers - and one of the greatest prose writers - of our time. 'I don't think there is a writer alive who has Jan Morris's serenity or strength.' Paul Theroux 'She can even impart a place's smell.' Observer

Descripción Oxford University Press, USA. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Paperback. 414 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.3in. x 0.9in.No one, since the days of the great Arab travelers, has described so much of the known world as Jan Morris. Considered by many the preeminent travel writer of our age, she now offers this retrospective selection of her best writings. Including 37 pieces, several of which have never appeared in book form before, these essays cover Morris entire career from the 1950s to the present, spanning the globe from China to Peru, from Beirut to Houston, and from Leningrad to Manhattan. Writing with elegance, passion, and wit, she captures the complex personality of each city, whether familiar or exotic. In the Preface, she clarifies her purpose: First to last, the world never ceased to astonish me, and I hope at least a little of that power to amaze, if nothing more profound, may be found between the covers of this book.
