From Venice to Vietnam, from the Welsh coast to Cairo, Don Meredith has travelled in the wake of 20th-century writers, using their novels and poems as guides, as another wayfarer might turn to Fodor's or the Guide Bleu. Canvassing the works of authors especially attuned to a sense of place, the author has gone in search of the backstreets, basilicas, cafes, piazzas and countrysides that figured so powerfully in their writings. Part travelogue, part literary study, this text is the author's account of these explorations into the impact of place in 12 literary classics.
