Inhaltsangabe: Before returning to the Old World after World War II, Sybille Bedford resolved to see something more of the New. I had a great longing to move, she said, to hear another language, eat new food, to be in a country with a long nasty history in the past and as little present history as possible. And so she set out for Mexico--and, incidentally, to write what Bruce Chatwin called the best travel book of the twentieth century, a book of marvels, to be read again and again and again.
Inhaltsangabe: The tale begins at Grand Central Station with an impetuous decision, continues with a nightmarish train journey, and then reveals the landscapes and people of Mexico with such a light touch that even the dullest patch of history becomes fascinating Although Bedford is frank about the horrors of travel, the highlight is the author's idyllic stay with Don Otavio, a bankrupt squire still inhabiting his lakeside house with 17 servants to wait on him.
