Labels Summary

Labels: A Mediterranean Journal by Evelyn Waugh

Evelyn Waugh chose the name Labels for his first travel book because, he said, the places he visited were already fully labelled in people's minds. Yet even the most seasoned traveller could not fail to be inspired by his quintessentially English attitude and by his eloquent and frequently outrageous wit. From Europe to the Middle East and North Africa, from Egyptian porters and Italian priests to Maltese sailors and Moroccan merchants - as he cruises around the Mediterranean his pen cuts through the local colour to give an entertaining portrait of the Englishman abroad.
