From the charming city of Bath, featured in Jane Austen's Persuasion, to the Amazon of Mario Vargas Llosa's La Casa Verde, this unique travel guide brings you to the places you've only ever read about. Whether you want to learn more about a destination or follow in the footsteps of your favorite character, Reading on Location helps you make the most of your travels (without even leaving your armchair)! Explore the world one continent or country at a time and discover the literature that connects it to us. Discover Africa by reading The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles or The Green Hills of Africa by Ernest Hemingway--but then go deeper. Head to Congo with The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver or The Bend in the River by V.S. Naipaul. Travel to Kenya and read Out of Africa by Isek Dinesen or The Constant Gardener by John Le Carre. Explore continent by continent and country by country until you've traveled the world through the eyes of history's greatest literary figures.
