A House Somewhere: Tales of Life Abroad
We’ve all dreamt of escaping to a house somewhere. In this collection of stories some of the finest names in contemporary travel writing reveal the perils and pleasures of exchanging the familiar for the foreign.
…I know well the delectable thrill of moving into a new house somewhere altogether else, in somebody else’s county, where the climate is different, the food is different, the light is different, where the mundane preoccupations of life at home don’t seem to apply and it is even fun to go shopping.—JAN MORRIS
