Description
The 1980s were the culmination of a golden age of travel writing, when Granta contributors like Paul Theroux, Bruce Chatwin, James Hamilton-Paterson, and James Fenton set out to document life in largely unfamiliar territory, bringing back tales of the beautiful, the extraordinary, and the unexpected. By the mid 1990s, there was a shift, as a younger generation of writers in the magazine made journeys for more complex and often personal reasons. Decca Aitkenhead reported on sex tourism in Thailand, for instance, while Wendell Steavenson moved to Iraq as foreign correspondent. What the 23 outstanding pieces here have in common is a sense of engagement with the places they describe, and a belief that whether we are in Birmingham or Belarus, there is always something new to be discovered.
