More on capturing a sense of place

The session on Friday evening at Daunt Books on “capturing a sense of place” (see previous post) was recorded, so rather than summarise it here I’ll wait for Daunt’s to make a sound file available and then link to that. Each of the writers on Barnaby Rogerson’s panel — Colin Thubron, Tracy Chevalier and Mahesh Rao — read something from one of his or her own books and then a piece from another writer. Rao chose a passage from The Great American Bus Ride by Irma Kurtz, who is best known as an agony aunt but is also a talented travel writer. Assuming you can find a copy, it might be just the thing to pack on a US trip this year — when Greyhound is marking its centenary.
