Author(s): A.A. Gill
From the moment he joined THE SUNDAY TIMES, A.A. Gill has wanted to interview places - to discover the personality of a place as if it were a person, to listen and talk to it. A selection of the very best pieces that Gill has written over the past five years, A.A. GILL IS FURTHER AWAY is a wonderfully insightful and funny compendium of travel writing taken mostly from THE SUNDAY TIMES, but also from GQ, TATLER and CONDE NAST TRAVELLER. Gill writes with a clarity and acerbity that conveys the intensity of his experiences in his travels around the world. His book includes essays on Sudan, India, Cuba, Germany and California. In each piece, there is a central image A.A. Gill uses as the key to unlocking the personality of a place.
"Gill applies his acerbity on Sudan, India, Cuba, Germany and California, uncovering the personality of each place much as he does with his celebrity interviewees" NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELLER "(Gill) never fails to write with power and wit" LONELY PLANET MAGAZINE
