I don't recommend this unless you enjoy casually misogynistic characters and repetitive stories.

Generally I am a lover of short stories but somehow these didn't quite hit the mark for me. Well crafted and edited, none of them jarred but none of them gelled either.

For me the best short stories are where I am left wanting to know more about the characters from the glimpses offered - there wasn't one that engaged me to that level. Equally, few of the stories left me wanting to know, or even troubling to imagine, what happened next.

That said the tales were well told and started from some inte

Nicely themed collection of stories, all dealing in one way or another with the concept of travel. A few stories felt lighter than others, but on the whole there were some real gems in here. Good to see a themed collection that works at keeping its central thread going, too - these stories hang together remarkably well, and you come away feeling that you've read more than just a collection of unconnected ideas. The perfect book to pack in your suitcase!

Rodge Glass is a master of the short story, and these are among some of his best. They exude the understanding and deep humanity that you would expect from one of his short stories. This book is well worth reading.

I end up travelling a lot and it was interesting to read this collection. I've read previous books from Rodge Glass and this was collection held up the quality he has put out before. Great book that I wish I had been reading on a plane going somewhere hot and warm!

Short travel stories, some of which have a reoccurring theme. Foreigners doing anything for a passport, and strippers seemed to be two. A very odd book, but some of it was enjoyable.
