Reviews

“New Directions is thus an important contribution to the burgeoning field of travel writing studies … . It will surely become a basic (re)source in travel writing studies that I recommend to those who have already ventured into the field and are familiar with the basic tenets and approaches, and to those who are encountering the opportunities offered by the study of the genre and are looking for possible ways to become engaged in this field of research.” (Balázs Venkovits, Hungarian Journal of English and American Studies, Vol. 23 (2), 2017)
