Reviews

"A lively, intensely personal recounting of a voyage into a gifted writer's country and self." --The New York Times Book Review

"Coasting is a glorious book, written with energy, wit and a melancholy lyricism . . . There's something wonderful on every page of this book." --The Seattle Times Post-Intelligencer "Marvelously written and superbly constructed. . . . The sort of book you put among those favorite books you keep on your desk or table . . . the sort you wish you had written yourself." -- Beryl Bainbridge, The Spectator "Raban is . . . one of our most gifted observers." --Newsday
