How come it took me so long to discover this writer, 30 April 2009
I was lucky enough to come across a newspaper article with a list of ten best travel books which included Raban's "Coasting".I love travel books and was intrigued as I had never heard his name before. Now I am a confirmed fan and am into my second Raban - "Old Glory" about his trip down the Missisipi.
