Few things are as exciting as the idea of travelling somewhere else. But the reality of travel seldom matches our daydreams.

Author Biography
de Botton, Alain (Author)
Born in Zurich, Switzerland on December 20, 1969, Alain de Botton was educated at Cambridge University, England, and now divides his time between London and Washington, D.C.

With the publication of his first novel, Essays in Love, de Botton quickly became one of the most talked about British novelists of the 1990s. Although the basic plot of Essays in Love (published in the U.S. as On Love) is a rather typical love story, de Botton presents it in a unique and humorous way.

De Botton's other novels include The Romantic Movement: Sex, Shopping and the Novel, which is written in a similar style to Essays on Love, and Kiss and Tell, which follows a would-be biographer as he attempts to write the life story of the first person he encounters. The Course of Love is his latest novel and is on the bestsellers list.

Alain de Botton is also the author of How Proust Can Change Your Life: Not a Novel.
