A Sense of Place

I’ve recently started reading Michael Shapiro’s great book about travel writers, A Sense of Place.

I’ve come to really enjoy reading travel writers — as they use their writing to bring you into the place they’re writing about. Shapiro spent a couple of years interviewing many of the best travel writers — trying to get inside their heads. It’s a great read — with Shapiro’s own bookends as his father struggles to stay alive in a bout with cancer while encouraging his son to finish his work. This book is a great read!
