House on Via Gombito : Writing By American Women Abroad (2ND 97 Edition)by Madelon Sprengnether
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
The third printing of the most highly regarded anthology published by New Rivers Press is the occasion for a new edition. The House on Via Gombito, published in 1991, is a collection of forty-six travel memoirs by women living or traveling outside of the United States. The writers include Diane Glancy, Patricia Hampl, and Nancy Raeburn. Whether the writing is of "A Walk on Hadrian's Wall", or a "Return to Warsaw", the portraits drawn are engaging, refreshing and unique. Publishers Weekly has said: "The nearly 50 short pieces of travel writing that comprise this volume display such a wealth of perspectives and explore such a variety of locales that the book is a splendid adventure in itself".
A classic book of travel writing with a new introduction, reprinted to complement New Rivers second collection Tanzania on Tuesday and the forthcoming anthology An Inn Near Kyoto.
