Travel Inspiration: Great New Reads

Looking for some travel inspiration?

Here are three new #TripLit reads that will transport you to a faraway place:

> A Passion for Parisby David Downie

From its alleys and ateliers to its cafés and cathedrals, Downie crafts an infatuated valentine for the City of Light.

Kaleidoscope City, by Piers Moore Ede

Sacred. Seamy. Virtually impenetrable. Ede makes sense of Varanasi, India, by portraying its people: sweetmakers, silk-weavers, even the dom rajas who cremate bodies by the Ganges.

> England and Other Stories, by Graham Swift

With these 25 stories of seemingly everyday events, Swift evokes the overlooked soul of today’s England.
