My favorites from this collection (7 out of 21): Watching the Rain in Galicia by Gabriel Garcia MarquezRoad to Cambodia by James FentonSubterranean Gothic by Paul TherouxCuba Revisited by Martha GellhornThe Imam and the Indian by Amitav GhoshFat Girls in Des Moines by Bill BrysonThe General by Isabel Hilton (this one reminded me of Oriana Fallaci's book Interview with History)
This book was hard to get through since travel writing has changed so much over the years. Most of the entries were politically based and lost me a bit. Not because I could not follow it - but because I am more interested in current happenings then stuff that occurred decades ago. Great resource though.
I was disappointed with this collection. I was expecting so much more from Granta and its writers and I didn't get it from this collection.Poor.Toast
