Review:

"This is the most interesting and insightful book that I have read on travel writing, and my students seem to agree."―Jonathan Smith, Texas A & M University

"Abroad is an exemplary piece of criticism. It is immensely readable. It bristles with ideas. It disinters a regal lost masterpiece from the library stacks. It admits a whole area of writing-at last!-to its proper place in literary history."―The New York Times Book Review

"What Fussell has done-brightly, wittily, with bravura display of critical methods-is to reclaim for travel writing a large measure of literary respectability."―Newsweek

"[Fussell's] book is a fitting substitute for the real thing; it is a journey in time and space, offering the serendipitous pleasure of the open road."―Time

"An absolutely dazzling continent of sociology, literary criticism, cultural history, biography and amusing anecdote, so borderlessly fused that we hardly realize what great intellectual distances we are covering."The New York Times

"[A] witty book that bristles with outrageous assertions....Fussell obviously enjoys the act of writing about his reading, which is what makes the book so lively."―The Tribune (London)

From the Back Cover:

An elegy for the lost art of travel-as opposed to today's tourism-Abroad is also a celebration of the British writers who memorialized the years between the two world wars as the last great age of travel.
