"Matthew Stevenson is a fine essayist, and his writing is a joy to read."
Editor, Harper's magazine

"I would rather wander the world with Matthew Stevenson than anyone else I know: the breadth of his interests, his knowledge of history and the sheer quality of his mind make him the ideal traveling companion.  This collection of essays is a worthy substitute for the man himself: if you cannot go with him, take his Letters of Transit, and they will see you through."
Best-selling author, The Professor and the Madman
and The Map That Changed the World

"Matthew Stevenson is a writer with a splendidly oblique angle on life; whether he is writing about travel, family, or himself, he is able to make me smile, and often laugh out loud. His prose unfailingly gives me pleasure."
Author of ten books of essays,
of which the most recent is Narcissus Leaves of the Pool

"Matthew Stevenson is humane, percipient, witty, and well-informed about a bewildering number of subjects.  He also writes like a dream."
Political Columnist, The Guardian (London)

"Matthew Stevenson is an uncommonly fine essayist -- fluent, stylish, enormously well informed and curious about the world we live in, and a very considerable all-arounder.  But what puts him head and shoulders above the other gifted writers today is his massive and transparent integrity.  Read him and be thankful for his quizzical gaze, his marvelous balance, and his tremendous feeling for all humanity."
Author of Calcutta, Imperial City and many award-winning books
