Reviews

Acclaimed fiction writer Banks turns an able hand to nonfiction in this expansive, elegiac reflection on the pleasures and deceptions of travel...In the best of these pieces, his clarity of vision and muscular prose are as transporting as a mountain ascent. -- Kirkus Reviews Fans of Banks' exceptional fiction and all readers enamored of travelogues will clamor aboard this compact, gusto-filled, retrospective anthology...Banks' warm, probing intellect guides readers on thoughtful journeys whatever the destination...Readers will be hard put to find a more engaging travel companion. -- Booklist (starred review) The ten introspective essays collected in this volume explore their author's emotional geography as much as the far-flung lands he visits...Banks' descriptions are visually evocative, and his eye for detail is sharpened by the near-spiritual resonance that his travel destinations have for him...Banks makes a magnificent tour guide for landscapes both within and without. -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
