Jan Morris was born in 1926 of a Welsh father and an English mother, and when she is not travelling she lives with her partner Elizabeth Morris in the top left-hand corner of Wales, between the mountains and the sea. Her books include Coronation Everest, Venice, The Pax Britannica Trilogy (Heaven's Command, Pax Britannica, and Farewell the Trumpets), and Conundrum. She is also the author of six books about cities and countries, two autobiographical books, several volumes of collected travel essays and the unclassifiable Trieste and the Meaning of Nowhere. A Writer's World, a collection of her travel writing and reportage from over five decades, was published in 2003. Hav, her novel, was published in a new and expanded form in 2006.

Prologue: An Angel Passes "That half-real, half-imagined seaport"
A City Down the Hill "Surreal, hypochondriac, subliminal? Surely not"
Preferring a Blur "For the drifter it is just right"
Remembering Empires "Seductive illusions of permanence"
Only the Band Plays On "I can hear the music still, but all the rest is phantom"
Origins of a Civic Style "Because--well, because of the Trieste effect"
Sad Questions of Oneself "The officers have turned in their saddles to see what is happening"
Trains on the Quays "Far away from where? Exile is no more than absence"
One Night at the Risiera "Their spirit, diffused but inherent, like a gene in the chromosome"
