A collection of travel writing by Britain's funniest and most feared critic.
Even those who hate him agree - A.A Gill is hopelessly, painfully funny. He is one of a tiny band of must-read journalists and it is always a disappointment when the words 'A.A. Gill is Away' appear at the foot of his column.
This book is the fruit of those absences: 22 long travel pieces that belie his reputation as mere style journalist and master of vitriol: this is travel writing of the highest quality.
A.A. Gill was the renowned restaurant and TV critic, and features writer, for The Sunday Times. He was a contributor to Vanity Fair, GQ, the Spectator and Australian Gourmet Traveller, and a columnist for Esquire.
His books include A.A. GILL IS AWAY, THE ANGRY ISLAND, PREVIOUS CONVICTIONS, TABLE TALK, PAPER VIEW, A.A. GILL IS FURTHER AWAY, THE GOLDEN DOOR, THE BEST OF A.A. GILL and the highly acclaimed memoir POUR ME.
He died in 2016.
