About the Author
Jan Morris (1926-2020) lived and wrote as James Morris until 1972. She resided with her partner, Elizabeth Morris, in northwest Wales, between the mountains and the sea. Her many books included In My Mind's Eye, Coronation Everest, and the Pax Britannica trilogy.
Reviews
Throughout, she demonstrates the stylistic command that has always distinguished her work. While stressing empathy and resisting pomposity, she refuses to suffer fools gladly. Engaging reflections on a life lived fully and well.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Perhaps the greatest travel writer of her time.--Matt Schudel "Washington Post"
To open a book by Jan Morris is like popping the cork on a bottle of champagne: pop, fizz, then bubbles of delight.--Scott Simon "NPR"
Distinctive, elegant, formidable. . . . Morris made travel seem like the best way to truly be alive in one's skin.--Dwight Garner "New York Times"
No matter what topic Morris covered over the course of her nearly eight-decade career--from travel to history to her own transition--she did so with insight, elegance and unflinching honesty.--Stuart Emmrich "Vogue"
