Product Description

Book Description

From childhood Dervla Murphy harboured a secret desire to visit Rumania. Two weeks after the fall of Ceaucescu her dream was realized. This is the story of her voyage.

About the Author

Dervla Murphy is one of the very best loved of travel writers. She was born in County Waterford and since 1964 has been regularly publishing accounts of her journeys - by bicycle and on foot - in the remoter areas of four continents. She has also written about the problems of Northern Ireland, the hazards of nuclear power, and race relations in Britain. The Times Literary Supplement called her 'an admirable woman - she has a romantic soul and a keen eye'.

This is one of my favourite books by Dervla, I feel her writing is best when she visits countries in that region, her writing is full of empathy and love. It's a bit weird how she refers to some people as 'peasants', sounds a bit dickensian.

For anyone unable to understand the difference between a tourist and a traveller. The marvellous Devla Murphy gets to the core of any place she goes to and you can only wonder at the resilience of her spirit. How she can write!
