Search - List of Books by Alexander Frater

Alexander Frater is a travel writer and journalist. He is noted for three well-regarded travel books, the most recent, Tales for the Torrid Zone, is in part an autobiography (of his childhood in Vanuatu) and a travelogue, was reviewed by the New York Times and described as "a pleasing grab bag of a book, a jumble of funny encounters, strange sights, forgotten history and really bad food". He has also been a writer for the New Yorker and chief travel correspondent for the London Observer.

'Chasing the Monsoon' is another notable work by Frater in which he follows the Monsoon in India.

In the book "Beyond the Blue Horizon" the author in 1984 went to Statesman-Aldwych Travel and asked them to provide him with a ticket to all the places that Imperial Airways used on their route to Australia in 1935. He succeeded in visiting most of the many strange airfields used then and tells also about the many intermediate flights between them with strange local airlines that most people never has heard about, but also in detail how it was to travel as a passenger to these far away and forgotten places back in 1935.
