Around the World in 80 Novels
Around the World in 80 Novels: A global journey inspired by writers from every continent | Henry Russell
1 post | 2 to read
Whether you're a regular globe-trotter or an armchair traveler, these 80 works conjure up the spirit of place for locations on every continent. Sometimes the setting of a novel is as important as the storywhere would Dickens be without London, or Edith Wharton without New York? Who can read Tales of the City and not want to visit San Francisco, or enjoy Alexander McCall Smiths No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency and not wonder whether perhaps Botswana should be on your bucket list? Covering every corner of the world, from North and South America to Europe, the Far East, Australia, Africa, and more, there are classics by famous authors, alongside works by new writers. Sometimes a native of the country is best able to convey its true nature, but then an outside observer can recreate the attraction of the unknown. Whether you have already decided on a destination and want to get a feel for the place, or you are just looking for ideas for your next getaway, Around the World in 80 Novels is full of inspirational reads that will fire your imagination and have you reaching for your suitcase.

This is the first time I've heard of the genre Tartan Noir. This sidebar is on the page about Ian Rankin's "Knots & Crosses."

BarbaraBB I have to dive into that, especially since to me Rankin is the ultimate crime writer, so I‘d like to know in what way Tartan Noir differs from an ‘ordinary‘ crime thriller! 1mo
BarbaraBB https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tartan_Noir well, it‘s just crime writers from Scotland I guess! 1mo
