About the book:

2001... What better year for a foreword written by Sir Arthur C. Clarke? The venerable master of science fiction and long-time resident of Sri Lanka kicks off a second exotic feast of literary adventure that transports both the reader (vicariously) and the traveler (via practical guide) around the world. Hot on the heels of the critically-acclaimed volume 1, the 24 tales contained in volume 2 again raise the bar for the very best in travel writing. The stories by renowned writers are complemented by detailed illustrations of their subjects and helpful photographs, as well as thoroughly researched guidebook information.

Uncover the mysteries of Kafka's Prague; tarry on the docks of John Steinbeck's Cannery Row; scurry with the street urchins of Charles Dickens's London; join Raymond Carver for a quiet cup of coffee in Washington; heckle a thespian at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre; swing a scythe with the fieldhands in Leo Tolstoy's Russia; get away from it all at Walden's Pond with Henry David Thoreau; dream of the future with Arthur C. Clarke; and experience other memorable highlights from the world of literature.
