Wall to wall: from Beijing to Berlin by rail
Combining vivid portraits of people and places with a more personal journey--a search for roots, family, and self-discovery--Mary Morris offers an unforgettable account of her 1986 trip through China, Russia, and Eastern Europe. A powerful travel memoir told through the sympathetic lens of a fine writer. Time calls Morris "a fascinating guide, with an eye for the brutal, the garish, the silly, and the bizarre".
