21 stories by various famous authors, originally published in the Conde Nast Traveler magazine, which says that it is unaffiliated with the travel industry (i.e., does not accept favors for articles).

This book was not as absorbing as I expected. Articles are mostly too serious, not written with enough humor or joy or fun. A few articles could be from any old travel guide, i.e., no new perspective (e.g., the one on the Vatican).

The articles by Robert Hughes, on the Etruscan coast in Italy and on
o 01/13/09 - 5 - read the chapter on Greece. It was OK. I was thinking this book wasn’t what I was looking for at this time. It still has potential

A lovely compilation of armchair travel stories, some better than others. I particularily enjoyed Pico Iyar's depictions of the isolated localse of Iceland and Ethopia. This author has a wonderfully poetic grasop of language and style. A great way to travel for a few pages.
After struggling through 2 essays, I got bored, put the book down, and now do not care to ever pick it up again.

Luckily, it's not this kind of writing that compels people to travel the world.
The next best thing to going on trips and planning trips is reading about other people's trips!

Various is the correct author for any book with multiple unknown authors, and is acceptable for books with multiple known authors, especially if not all are known or the list is very long (over 50).

If an editor is known, however, Various is not necessary. List the name of the editor as the primary author (with role "editor"). Contributing authors' names follow it.
