This is the second volume in a new series of literary travel guides. Continuing the successful formula of the first volume, short stories by professional travel writers are supported by comprehensive guidebook information, making this series a new concept in publishing. 24 destinations around the world are featured in the evocative short stories. Leading travel writers write about their favourite authors and the places they have made famous. Each short story is followed by practical travel advice including information on literary sites, hotels and restaurants. The book makes a very entertaining and informative armchair read and there is also enough information for the traveller to plan his/her own trips 'in the footsteps' of famous literary figures. The authors (and places) featured in Literary Trips, Volume 2: Sir Arthur C. Clarke (Sri Lanka) Evelyn Waugh (Land of Sheba) Anna Leonowens (Southeast Asia) Graham Greene (Saigon) Robert Louis Stevenson (Hawaii) Raymond Carver (Washington) Jack London (Northern California) John Steinbeck (Central California) William Faulkner (Mississippi) Stephen Crane (New Jersey) Henry David Thoreau (Massachusetts) Robertson Davies (Ontario) Malcolm Lowry (Mexico) Jorge Arnado (Brazil) Pablo Neruda (Chile) Maeve Binchy (Ireland) Beatrix Potter (Lake District) William Shakespeare (Southern England) Charles Dickens (London) George Orwell (Barcelona) Franz Kafka (Prague) Leo Tolstoy (Russia's Yasnaya Polyana) Lawrence Durrell (Cyprus) Lord Byron (Byzantium via Istanbul)
