Far and Away : The Essential A.A. Gill, Paperback / softback Book

Far and Away : The Essential A.A. Gill Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

A.A. Gill was an exceptional writer. Savage and compassionate in equal measure, he was always opinionated, always original, often surprising, and his writing illuminated every page. This second collection of his journalism brings together pieces from near and far.

He was ferociously well-travelled and wrote 'abroad is as foreign and funny and strange and shocking as it ever was, and our need to know our neighbours every bit as great'.

Far and Away is a book about meeting those neighbours.

Wherever he was - with the glitterati in St Tropez or in the ruins of earthquake-stricken Haiti - he had the ability to pin down the heart of a story and render it unforgettable.

He was a peerless writer about food, and we also join him at tables all around the globe.

A.A. Gill had the gift of making his readers see the world in a different way. And, always, of making them laugh. This collection is an opportunity to marvel at a master at work.
