She read her way around all the globe’s 196 independent countries (plus one extra), sampling one book from every nation. It wasnt easy. Many languages have next to nothing translated into English- there are tiny, tucked-away places where very little is written down at all- some governments dont like to let works of art leak out to corrupt Westerners.Her literary adventures shed light on the issues that affect us all: personal, political, national and global.

Using her quest as a starting point, this book explores questions such as: What is cultural heritage? How do we define national identity? Is it possible to overcome censorship and propaganda? And how can we celebrate, challenge and change our remarkable world?
