Norman Lewis in conversation

The World, The World

Hay Festival 1996, 
"Norman Lewis is the best travel writer of our age, if not since Marco Polo" - Auberon Waugh.
We celebrate the publication of Lewis' second volume of autobiography with this conversation.
His books include the travel classics A Dragon Apparent and  Golden Earth and Naples 44. His resolve, his style and his integrity are flovoured with a wonderful humour that also puts him "among the great comic writers of our time" - Ian Thomson
