Description: Sydney, Australia, Bantam. 2000, Edition Unstated. (ISBN: 1863252681) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Steinbach explores the world and rediscovers what it means to be a woman on her own. one womans observations, reflections, and personal philosophy. By the end of her travels, Steinbach discovers in herself a woman she thought had been lost in time or worn down by age. Her time alone, time spent encountering both old memories and new ideas, helps her re-ignite her independent spirit and reawaken her sense of fierce individuality. Her not-quite-spontaneous adventure begins in Paris, where she finds a kindred spirit in a worldly Japanese businessman. From there she heads off to Oxford, where she takes a course in English village life, and on to Milan, where she meets the most charming of her fellow travelers, a young American girl soon to be married. The obstacles Steinbach faces on her journeys seem minor--overcoming a fear of ballroom dancing in Oxford and putting aside the habit of always doing "at least two things at once." Only in Milan, when she was nearly mugged, does Steinbach experience anything harrowing. CONDITION Pp xxi 278 illus with coloured stamps and postcards from the various places she visited. Bright and crisp copy with the slightest handling signs. Very Good/N/A.
