5 Must-Read Travel Books by Authors Famous for Their Fiction

We tend to think of the authors of travel books and the authors of fiction books as two separate and distinct categories of writer. You’ve got your Tocqueville’s and Bill Bryson’s on one side, and your F. Scott Fitzgerald’s and Harper Lee’s on another.

Often to great effect: unsurprisingly, the talents which lend themselves to worthy fiction — the ability t...
