Best known as the author of 'The Road to Oxiana' (published in 1937), Robert Byron developed his considerable writing skills on a travel book which has not been in print since 1926. 'Europe in the Looking Glass' describes a journey Byron made with three friends, driving across Europe between two world wars, and mixes political and historical analysis with architectural insights, classical scholarship and the day-to-day adventures of three young and not very experienced travellers. For fans of Robert Byron's work this will be a discovery; for others it will be an introduction.
