Reviews

"Winchester is a storyteller...romantic enough to make us yearn to be there with him." --The Washington Post

"Winchester is an exceptionally engaging guide...at home everywhere, ready for anything, full of gusto, and seemingly omnivorous curiosity." --The New York Times Book Review

"Another home run." --Los Angeles Times

"At one time or another, many of us, I suspect, have wanted to be Simon Winchester, to lead a life that was equal parts Jan Morris and James Bond." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Winchester is an exquisite writer and a deft anecdoteur." --Christopher Buckley
