  • Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhereby Jan Morris

    Simon & Schuster 2001; US$ 23.00

    One hundred years ago, Trieste was the chief seaport of the entire Austro-Hungarian empire, but today many people have no idea where it is. This fascinating Italian city on the Adriatic, bordering the former Yugoslavia, has always tantalized Jan Morris with its moodiness and melancholy. She has chosen it as the subject of this, her final work, because... more...

  • Hong Kongby Jan Morris

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2011; US$ 17.00

    In its last days under British rule, the Crown Colony of Hong Kong is the world's most exciting city, at once fascinating and exasperating, a tangle of contradictions. It is a dazzling amalgam of conspicuous consumption and primitive poverty, the most architecturally incongruous yet undeniably beautiful urban panorama of all. World-renowned travel... more...

  • Spainby Jan Morris

    Faber & Faber 2008; US$ 11.65

    Spain is one of the absolutes. Nothing is more compelling than the drama, at once dark and dazzling, of that theatre over the hills - the vast splendour of the Spanish landscape, the intensity of Spain's pride and misery, the adventurous glory of a history that set its seal upon half the world . . . Passionate, evocative and beautifully... more...

  • Coronation Everestby Jan Morris

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 13.11

    'Exquisite, powerful . . . I can think of no better way of commemorating British exploration's culminating triumph.' Simon Winchester This classic account offers a breathtakingly intimate evocation of the most famous of all mountaineering exploits - and of perhaps the last great old-fashioned Fleet Street scoop. 'It was Morris who broke the news... more...

  • Contact!by Jan Morris

    Faber & Faber 2010; US$ 13.11

    Jan Morris (then James) first visited Trieste as a soldier at the end of the Second World War.
