Set in a two month period during the late 1920s, A Compass Error suggests that at some key juncture the book's main character, Flavia, made a mistake that somehow blew her life off course, perhaps into a new sexual orientation.
UK Kirkus Review » An impromptu trip to Mexico begins at Grand Central Station as Bedford, accompanied by her friend Esther Murphy Arthur and a large hamper of chicken, cherries and tomatoes, boards a train, uncertain of a place to stay at journey's end. Once in Mexico, she and Esther attempt to avoid the expatriates and set out to find lunch, a drink and someone to talk to. The final goal is Don Otavio's mansion but on route are myriad small hotel rooms, dusty bus journeys, rendezvous missed and made. A modern classic of travel writing. (Kirkus UK)
