From acclaimed writer A. A. Gill comes this collection of travel pieces selected from his monthly column in Australian Gourmet Traveller - 'AA Gill is away'. Gill ponders Italy's ability to turn organised crime into a tourist attraction, stumbles upon lobster-shaped coffins in Ghana, contemplates the Darwinian drive of bastardised dishes around the globe, explains why Johannesburg is the luckiest place in the unluckiest continent and considers the great black lake of tears that immigration leaves behind. With an introduction and extra piece written exclusively for this collection.
