About the Book by Paul Clements Titled “Jan Morris: Life From Both Sides”

From a New York Times review by Alexandra Jacobs of the book by Paul Clements titled “Jan Morris: Life From Both Sides: A Biography”:

The travel writer and historian Jan Morris hated being pigeonholed. Indeed, she bristled mightily at being called a travel writer at all, finding the term “demeaning” and reductive, though many of the books and articles she wrote during a plush and renown-stuffed career of seven decades were set far from her native England and the home in North Wales she made for much of adulthood with her wife, Elizabeth Tuckniss. She wrote plenty about both those places too, but Morris was no stranger to an expense account. She once called tourists “morons” in a speech, biting the hand that was feeding her at a travel magazine breakfast.
