KIRKUS REVIEW

Le Grand Tour by way of a series of travel commentaries from this magazine emphasizes the particular attractions of each country, the special qualities and national character of the people, profiles of the principal cities and favorites landscapes, restaurants and shops- rather than cultural sites. There are excerpts from well known writers- Fitzgerald, Gallico, John Gunther, Joseph Wechsberg, etc. There is preliminary guidance- on how as well as where to go- packing- being a tourist, gracefully- renting a castle- etc. And all in all it offers a travelogue on the sophisticated side- the tone is smart, the ambience one of svelte luxury, providing pleasant company at home as well as abroad.
