Other places, other people, other lives – that is what can be found in this book of stories inspired by travel to far-flung places and great cities of the world. The thread running through them is ‘people-watching’, both capturing the reality of the moment and conjecturing on what may be happening.
Some people in these tales are just filling in time, while others beg desperately for a livelihood. There is fantasy and philosophy, humour and the reality of death. The joy and misery of travel are in these pages, as is the wonder of discovery.
