    A moving, thought provoking book by a man in the final stages of a neurodegenerative disorder for whom roaming the corridors of his own mind is about the only pleasure left in life. But what wonderful reflections he leaves us as he wanders through the rooms of his personal memory chalet; thoughts about train travel, growing up in post war London, the British education system, an adolescent dalliance with Labour Zionism, life at Cambridge, revolution, living in New York, identity versus cosmopolitanism and finally back again to trains and a particular line that winds its way around a quiet mountain in remotest Switzerland which, by the end of the book, we see Tony Judt traveling in perpetuity.
