The Virago Book of Wanderlust and Dreams by Edited by Lisa St Aubin De Terán hits the £1 shelf in my shop.
Virago, 1998, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: In this haunting and unusual collection of writing about longings for flight, the yearnings are as varied as their dreamers. Some want to cross a desert or an ocean, some travel back into memory, some never leave home, some wait patiently for their life.
Including writers as diverse as Zora Neale Hurston, Elizabeth von Arnim, Karen Blixen, Angela Carter, Elaine Dundy, Janet Frame, Jessie Kesson, Shena Mackay, Dorothy Parker, Bernice Rubens, Elizabeth Smart, Romaine Brooks and Harriet Wilson, this imaginative and far-reaching anthology is dedicated to women who have had the courage to say yes to life, whether that means daring to go, or daring to stay.
