Part of the Bloomsbury good reading guide series
Reading, like travelling, takes you on a journey of discovery into new places, cultures and ways of living.
This book brings those two worlds worlds together. It is a literary exploration of global proportions, a rich survery of the finest novels set or written in other countries.
Hundreds of titles are featured from every continent and you can browse by region, city or travel related theme.
Whether you are travelling abroad or simply expanding your range of reading, this guide will enable you to see the world through the eyes of some the finest foreign writers.
Nik Kalinowski and Vincent Cassar are two booksellers and writers who have applied their passion for foreign fiction to present their best picks from the thousands of titles available.
The guide includes novels from circa 1900 onwards that are particularly evocative of where they are set.
Arranged alphabetically by continent, then by country, key titles are featured followed by read-on titles.
You can also browse by major cities or travel topics.
