The Good Book Guide Review

Providing an intellectually stimulating new type of travel guide, this series celebrates the literary heritage of specific European cities. Each book aims to offer an appetising flavour of a place through a collection of notable writing, both classic and modern, on that city. So in Dublin there’s the likes of Roddy Doyle, Elizabeth Bowen or Iris Murdoch reflecting on its eclectic appeal; while in Amsterdam Voltaire, Alain de Botton and Simon Schama offer their meditations on a city often called ‘the Venice of the North.’ Ideal both for intrepid explorers wishing to gain fresh perspective and for enthusiastic armchair travellers alike.

City-Pick: Dublin Press Reviews

'I really love the idea - when taking a trip, to have a book that offers what you are offering ... short pieces by good writers that capture the essence of a place'
