Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This funny and tender book combines three of Alice Steinbach’s greatest passions: learning, traveling, and writing. After chronicling her European journey of self-discovery in Without Reservations, this Pulitzer Prize—winning columnist for the Baltimore Sun quit her job and left home again. This time she roamed the world, taking lessons and courses in such things as French cooking in Paris, Border collie training in Scotland, traditional Japanese arts in Kyoto, and architecture and art in Havana. With warmth and wit, Steinbach guides us through the pleasures and perils of discovering how to be a student again. She also learns the true value of this second chance at educating herself: the opportunity to connect with and learn from the people she meets along the way.

Synopsis:

Recounts the Pulitzer Prize-winning author's decision to quit her job in favor of undertaking a journey of self-discovery in Europe, during which she studied French cooking in Paris, attended Border-collie training in Scotland, learned traditional Japanese arts in Kyoto, and more. Reader's Guide included. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
