AA Gill is Away Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


'Theatre, food, refugees: in Adrian's writing they're all linked up ...

If you haven't read his book AA GILL IS AWAY, read it now.

It was when he was away that he was at his best' Stephen DaldryA.

A. Gill was probably the most read columnist in Britain.

Every weekend he entertained readers of the SUNDAY TIMES with his biting observations on television and his unsparing, deeply knowledgeable restaurant reviews.

Even those who objected to his opinions agree: his writing is hopelessly, painfully funny.

He was one of a tiny band of must-read journalists and it was always a disappointment when the words 'A.A.

Gill is away' appeared at the foot of his column. This book is the fruit of those absences: twenty-five long travel pieces that belie his reputation as a mere style-journalist and master of vitriol: this is travel writing of the highest quality and ambition.
