From the Back Cover:

Virago Press and the Asham Award, the foremost prize for stories by women, present a collection of tales to send you to places you've never been before . . .

Here are stories of people who journey far and those who get as far as their dreams;of strange things in suitcases and of roads that should not have been taken; of exotic cities and shabby seaside towns; of leaving lovers to hit the open road; of the humour that comes of getting lost abroad. Some are about running away, and some about coming home.

With new stories from Helen Dunmore and Susie Boyt and a tale by Angela Carter, this is a book to tuck in your backpack, your case, your carryon or, to enjoy, deep in your armchair. You are about to go on a wonderful journey...

The Sussex home of Virginia Woolf - Asham House - has been the source and support of this celebrated prize since 1995.
