Writer Alain de Botton

He is the author of several books including How Proust Can Change Your Life, and The Consolations of Philosophy. His latest book, The Art of Travel, is a reflection on travel, the anticipation versus the reality, how one often travels to escape the familiar and mundane -- but can't escape oneself, and an examination of the art and literature of travel.
