The World by Jan Morris: Cringe-Worthy & Thought-Provoking Travel Tales (#154)

It’s time for another Brendan’s Book Club episode, where he and fellow #nerdbird Rachel review The World: Travels 1950-2000 by Jan Morris. A deeply fascinating series of articles from Jan’s travel assignments to every part of the world, the book also includes a tale of her gender transition. The #nerdbirds explore her white British (and often colonial) perspectives when writing along with her keen powers of observation, and make connections to how we live and explore cultures today.
