Riassunto: In the spring of 1926, the writer Vita Sackville-West travelled to Persia to visit her husband, Harold Nicolson, who was at the British Legation. Her journey took her through Egypt, India and Iraq and back later that year through the newly-Communist Russia and revolution-torn Poland. The route was circuitous and the pace leisurely, though not without excitement. This is her account of the journey, the descriptions of her adventures being told with characteristic humour. The introduction by her son, Nigel Nicolson, reveals many personal details of the journey which were omitted from the original edition.
L'autore: Vita Sackville-West, the celebrated writer and Bloomsbury member, was a prolific poet and author. Her most famous works include The Edwardians, All Passion Spent and the classic poem The Land which won the Hawthornden Prize in 1927. With her husband she created the magnificent and hugely influential gardens at their home, Sissinghurst Castle. In 1946 she was made a Companion of Honour for her services to literature. She died in 1962.
