Liz V asked Frances Mayes:

I also wonder what kind of travel writing you prefer and why: fiction or nonfiction?

Frances Mayes I look for the same qualities in travel writing that I enjoy in novels and other nonfiction--a strong personal voice and a felicitous writing style. Story, especially dangerous adventure, is not enough. Walking through a medieval town can be more riveting than escaping from six bears.
