Sarah Broadhurst's view...

June 2010 Book of the Month.

Not a travel guide but a literary flavour of a city. The series has done Paris, London, Berlin and Dublin. They are anthologies of extracts from living and dead authors, some 60 in each volume, here with the likes of Camus and Voltaire to Irvine Welsh and Ian McEwan, each perfect gems.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

From outsiders to insiders, from classic to cutting-edge, over seventy dazzling writers - some translated into English for the very first time - reveal the many faces, present and past, of this amazing city.

* Ian McEwan describes that perfect Amsterdam moment. *Alain de Botton finds the exotic in the ordinary *Cees Nooteboom celebrates a city of water * David Sedaris visits Anne Frank’s House * Geert Mak shows us a nation within a nation * Simon Schama evokes old Amsterdam * Dubravka Ugresic discovers a city of exile * Doeschka Meijsing takes a swim in the canal * Geoff Dyer spends a weekend in Amsterdam … and much, much more

With a new fast rail line making Amsterdam as accessible as Paris for UK visitors, city-pick Amsterdam offers a fascinatingly fresh view of a richly diverse city for city-break travellers and lovers of entertaining and compelling writing. The latest in the ‘wonderful’ (The Guardian) city-pick series already featuring Paris, London, Berlin and Dublin.
