'Lycett has looked at Kipling warts and all, and conducts us through his life and times with authority, dispassion and clarity. This is an excellent biography, with everything in its place.' - Lawrence James, Literary Review; 'Andrew Lycett has had the good idea of making a collection of Kipling's travel writing...[he] has compiled a very enjoyable anthology. There is scarcely a single piece that isn't worth reaing. Kipling's keen observation and gift for illuminating phrase are everywhere apparent and book will be welcomed by aficionados' - Allan Massie, Literary Review; 'This perfect bedside book collects the most descriptive and revealing of his travel writings...Kipling comes across as an engaging travel companion- thoughtful, curious and acute- and a writer perfectly able to evoke and crystallise the sights, sounds and spirit of a place' - Clover Stroud, Sunday Telegraph
