it was amazing

A beautifully written tour of the British empire around the turn of the century, arguably the very climax of that complex and fascinating institution. The author takes the approach of writing only about what she personally finds interesting and can spend a few dozen pages on some small near forgotten Caribbean port she finds intriguing.

Love When Goodreads lists the book as written by Jan and James Morris this gives the impression it's written by a married couple, while in fact the author is a transexual who changed his/her name to Jan after the books publication.
