A Sense of Place

I've always been fan of travel writing. Sometimes funny, sometimes scholarly, but nearly always illuminating. 'A Sense of Place' by Michael Shapiro is a collection of interviews Shapiro had with some of the most prominent travel writers in the world, Jan Morris, Pico Iyer, Simon Winchester and others, providing insight into the craft of travel writing. He speaks with the authors about their motivations and their opinions, and what they have learned after a lifetime on the road.
