Previous ed. of this translation: Edinburgh: Polygon, 1992.

A Cult Classic, "The Way of the World" is one of the most beguiling travel books ever written.

Reborn from the ashes of a Pakistan rubbish heap, it tells of a friendship between a writer and an artist, forged on an impecunious, life-enhancing journey from Serbia to Afghanistan in the 1950s.

On one level it is a candid description of a road journey, on another a meditation on travel as a journey towards the self, all written by a sage with a golden pen and a wide infectious smile.

It is published here for the first time in English with the Vernet drawings which are such a dynamic part of its whole.
