August 08, 1993|CHARLES SOLOMON

LOCATIONS by Jan Morris (Oxford University Press: $8.95; 152 pp.). In this engaging collection of essays, the popular travel writer offers her impressions of various cities, including some second thoughts. She's charmed by the unapologetic individualism of San Francisco, depressed by the sterile, artificial beauty of Canberra and bemused by the contrast between media hype and reality in Glasgow in 1990. In argute prose, Morris continues the tradition of the personal essay, rather than the breezier canon of travel writing.
