The Places In Between by Rory Stewart
The Places In Between

featherbooks, January 1, 2010

Although it has been several years since I read Rory Stewart's book, it is my favorite of the decade partly because I cannot pick up a newspaper without being reminded of the author's exceptional experiences and conclusions trekking from Herat to Kabul with his dog Babur. His encounters with Afghan people, possibly Taliban, the dangers faced, the thrilling, frustrating and meditative moments all beautifully described make it a memorable and prescient book.

To find out what the author thinks about current events in Afghanistan, read his newest piece in the 1/14/2010 The New York Review of Books.
