The Armchair Traveler

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic In this study group we will read and discuss selections from the works of two gifted, highly regarded, but very different travel writers - A.A. Gill and Paul Theroux. Gill is very British, very funny, and as one reviewer described him, very full of himself. Theroux, on the other hand, is very American, very forthright, and unflinching in his observations. Both will take us on journeys around the world from the comfort of our living rooms. Our texts will be A. A. Gill's Here and There:  Collected Travel Writing (Hardie Grant Books, 2012) and Paul Theroux's Figures in a Landscape:  People and Places (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2018). In our discussions we will expand upon the term "travel" and not limit it to geographical destinations alone. We will be encouraged to share our own travel stories, broadly defined, when relevant.
