A rather enjoyable collection.,
This review is from: Better Than Fiction: True Travel Tales from Great Fiction Writers (Lonely Planet Travel Literature) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Better than Fiction is a Lonely Planet collection of true travel tales by 32 literary writers. There are great tales from the likes of Pico Iyer, DBC Pierre, Peter Ho Davies, Isabel Allende, etc. While there is no common thread or theme really linking these stories together, you still have a wonderfully enjoyable collection of short non-fiction episodes. As these are true life stories you also to an extent get an insight into the lives of these writers. Some are adventurous, some unfortunate, some more mundane but all have provided an enjoyable short story.
A rather enjoyable collection.
