Waugh's accounts of his travels and just as his travels informed his fiction, his novelist's sensibility is apparent in each of these pieces. Waugh pioneered the genre of modern travel writing in which the comic predicament of the traveler is as central as the world he encounters. He wrote with as sharp an eye for folly as for foliage, and a delight in the absurd, not least where his own comfort and dignity are concerned. E-72; 8vo 8"-9" tall; 279 pages.
