A beautifully-crafted and exciting blend of travel, history, political observation and personal experience, "Letters of Transit" is the distillation of the colourful and eventful journeys Matthew Stevenson has made throughout the world for over 20 years. The perfect travelling companion, Stevenson takes the reader with him on a diverse range of fascinating journeys to places such as Serbia, Afghanistan, Northern Ireland, South Africa, Korea and America. He describes his crossing of Poland by bicycle, a family holiday to Petra, bullfights in Mexico City, a visit to the battlefield at Guadalcanal, where his father fought, and a trip to Palestinian refugee camps in Jordan. Written with humour, understanding and insight, "Letters of Transit" captures the imagination from the very first page.
