Freya Stark was a young woman when she first traveled to Arabia, North Africa, Persia and Turkey. She felt change beneath the surface and recorded all she could of that ancient world. The result is a series of beautiful books.
Chapter titles alone are an enticement. "In Defense of Smuggling," "The Foreign Office," "Tidiness," "Lunch with Homer," plus others. Each sketch is introduced by a short commentary.
None of the material collected here has appeared in any of the author's previous books, and it spans, in chronological sequence, the lifetime of one of the most distinguished writers, primarily writers of travel, of our day. [via]
