Book : A Sense of Place

Currently reading :

Michael Shapiro's A Sense of Place -
Great Travel Writers Talk ABout Their Craft, Lives and Inspiration


Michael Shapiro's illuminating conversations with the world's great travel writers reveal deeply-held views about the craft of writing, the world, and home. Go with him and ride over dusty Montana roads to Tim Cahill's writing cabin, step into the Dickensian clutter of Redmond O'Hanlon's house in Oxford, visit Frances Mayes in her Tuscan villa, gaze at Peter Matthiessen's rustic zendo on Long Island, and empty a bottle of wine with Jonathan Raban in a Seattle study that seems like a ship's cabin.

So far I am enjoying this book immensely!
