The Latest from Don George
In his latest Trip Lit column, Traveler’s book critic Don George reviews Jan Morris’s latest book, Contact: A Book of Encounters. Says George, “One of the English language’s keenest observers and depicters of place, the legendary writer turns her eye on people, collecting impressions from a half-century of encounters around the globe. Her pithy portraits, most just a single paragraph and the longest a page and a half, present a tapestry of humanity, from a Fijian
taxi driver, London
nannies, and a street musician in Zagreb, to Yves Saint Laurent, Peter O’Toole, and Jordan’s King Hussein.” Find out what else he has to say in the latest Trip Lit column.
