The Literary Guide to the World


| 9/12/2008 11:13:30 AM


After a trip to Delhi, Salon’s Hillary Frey had an idea: “Wouldn’t it be cool if there was a travel guide devoted not to restaurants, hotels and museums, but to the literature of a place?” And so Salon’s Literary Guide to the World was born. The result is a collection of destination-specific book reviews, written by accomplished writers who know each location well, and built around the idea that literature can show you a place in an instructive, entertaining, and enriching way. The next time you’re looking for a literary travel companion to Gypsy Europe, West Texas, Armenia, or Togo, be sure to stop by Salon for advice.

Apparently the idea was inspired by a trip to Delhi, and yet India is not even part of the project. This is really too bad as there is a ton of rich literature and I was looking for some good recommendations from Salon. Also frustrating was that I couldn't eaily find a place to share this comment/request directly with Salon. Hopefully they will be adding India soon to the Literary Guide to the World.
