Editorial Reviews:
Review:
"A disciplined, unsentimental last testament from an old pro, full of distilled adventures and the reflective richness that distinguishes the melancholy from the merely sad."

Kirkus, 07/15/2001

Review:
"[Trieste] is a spot from which to look back and draw conclusions. A good place, in other words, for a swan song. And what an exquisite song this is: kind, pellucid and urbane, minutely researched and beautifully managed, without a hint of arrogance or gimmickry....This mix of the personal, the ideational and the descriptive is the essence of great travel writing, and there's precious little of it being written today. Now that travel itself is easy, almost mundane, and there are guide books for the most obscure corners of the globe, travel literature has more and more lost confidence in its own ability to resonate. Morris's quiet strength and unerring assurance is a joy in an era of joke travelogues and shaggy dog stories."

Melanie McGrath, London Observer, 09/25/2001
