Travels Without My Aunt Book Description :
Julia Llewellyn-Smith - journalist, writer and interviewer of the famous - has set out on a fascinating project. Leaving her comfortable, urban, middle class professional life, she travelled alone to places in which order has broken down, places such as Zaire and Haiti, south-central Los Angeles and Moss Side in Manchester. She wanted to discover what it was like to live in such chaos, such unpredictability, such tension. Her style is light-hearted and deeply personal, and through her journey, she discovers what it is about civilization and an ordered society that is truly important to her - and to us.
