The Selectors BOOKS Tim Moore British travel writer, humourist and author of nine travelogues. @mrtimmoore HOTELS Yuna Megre Founder of MEGRE INTERIORS, a Moscow- and Los Angelesbased creative house specialising in hospitality design. megreinteriors.com Selects: The Whitby Hotel, New York “All of the Firmdale hotels have quality, soul and are distinctive in the way they communicate with their guests – Creative Director Kit Kemp understands hospitality, design and experience. Some hotels try for a ‘wow’ effect and ignore the basics, like good beds. I like a room to be ergonomic and homely, prioritising comfort over gimmicks. The Whitby Hotel is my new favourite. And their service is exceptional.” firmdalehotels.com Selects: Eric Newby’s A Short Walk in the Hindu Kush “I previously had no idea that people from the 1950s could be so amusing. As well as being really funny, what Newby is about to undertake is suicidally stupid. And he practises by going to Wales and learning mountain climbing techniques from the hotel chambermaid. I had it open on my desk while writing my first book, Frost on My Moustache, and stole from it shamelessly. For instance, Newby was very good with adverbs, which has been a lifelong blot on my writing. But I’m also slightly annoyed that A Short Walk had such a profound effect on my writing because it’s the comedy of personal discomfort – how terrible situations can also be very funny. Why couldn’t he have written about lying around swimming pools?” COVER IMAGE: REPRINTED BY PERMISSION OF HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS LTS © 1958 ERIC NEWBY DRIVING FREEDOM We all have pivotal moments in our life: a new job, a growing family, or the need for greater financial flexibility.
