What constitutes great travel writing? To mark the launch of a series of iconic travel titles from the Vintage Travel Classics range, three contemporary writers nominate their candidates. Sara Wheeler - explorer, journalist and author of Terra Incognita: Travels in Antarctica - selects Apsley Cherry-Garrard's undisputed masterpiece of polar literature, The Worst Journey in the World. Staking a claim for warmer climes, award-winning biographer Victoria Glendinning champions Elizabeth Bowen's A Time in Rome. Finally Toby Litt - author of Corpsing, Journey into Space and, most recently, King Death - reveals his love of Robert Byron's delightfully eccentric The Road to Oxiana. (DeadGoodBooks)
