Here and There showcases the very best of A A Gill's hilarious and insightful travel writing, and is a must read for anyone who is curious about the world we live in. Witty, acerbic and often moving, these pieces are far from standard travel writing fare. Touching on tourism, airports, world cuisine and countries including Madagascar, Iceland and Albania, Gill's perspective is often controversial and always unique.

Synopsis

Here and There by A.A. Gill

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.
