The Best American Travel Writing 2014 (Best American) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his introduction, guest editor Andrew McCarthy says that the best travel writing is “the anonymous and solitary traveler capturing a moment in time and place, giving meaning to his or her travels.” The stories in The Best American Travel Writing 2015 demonstrate just that spirit, whether it is the story of a marine returning to Iraq a decade after his deployment, a writer retracing the footsteps of humanity as it spread from Africa throughout the world, or looking for love on a physics-themed cruise down the Rhone River. No matter what the subject, the writers featured in this volume boldly call out, “Yes, this matters. Follow me!”

Iris Smyles, Paul Theroux, Christopher Solomon

Patricia Marx, Kevin Baker, Benjamin Busch, Maud Newton

Gary Shteyngart, Paul Salopek,
