We are all of us prey to itineraries of what is already mediated by prose and photographs and television the prepared scapes the ready made vistas the off the peg sublimity the store bought sites of emetic picturesueness It was always thus hence the majority of Grand Tourists of a uarter of a millennium ago took in the same places and were forever running into each other We see what we have been taught to see Meades is clearly a learned man and this is one of those books where I stumbled upon all sorts of treasures and titbits to chase up later on There were times when his vast knowledge seemed to get in the way of his writing as a result it can really break the flow and impact of some of his essays but this is a price worth paying for the greater pay off of the whole book The internet has been a great boon to fans of pornography and amateur genealogists One pursuit will make you go blindthe other will merely boost sales of Superstrength Kleenex Mansize New Labour Expenses Wipes Of the six scripts included in here I would say at least half of them are excellent and really give us a feel for his distinctive style of presenting and tackling subjects He makes so many vital points on so many compelling topics He is clearly not a fan of the suburbs of Brussels garden cities Tony Blair or Michael Heseltine but his love and passion of so many other things is apparent and enjoyable to digestHis approach seems to flit between snobby and pretentious to totally absorbing and many things in between ensuring that this is a varied deep challenging and rewarding experience that pulls you in all sorts of directions Put simply Meades is one of those writers who makes you look at familiar subjects in a new light and teaches you a lot about subjects you scarcely knew anything aboutThis collection put me in mind of so many other fine and contemporary essayists and men of the world the likes of Iain Sinclair Ian Nairn Geoff Dyer and AA Gill and like those guys he seems perennially inuisitive about the world around him eager to find what lies beyond the next horizon His childlike enthusiasm brings all sorts of weird and wonderful obscurities to life and this was a really enjoyable read
