AbeBooks' Reading Copy

Going global with Jan Morris

Last night I started reading something off the top of my ‘to read’ list – The World 1950-2000 by Jan Morris – and this morning I see Bookslut has a feature about her work as a travel writer but also a historian.

Morris is my favorite travel writer and this collection of her writing is going to whisk me around the globe. Imagine starting off your career by breaking the news that Sherpa Tenzing and Edmund Hillary has just climbed Mount Everest (she – when she was still a he – was the only journalist in the party) and doing it on Coronation Day?
