The Best American Travel Writing 2013
Martina Clark's review
Jan 01, 2014
Frequently on the go and in transit, I are reminded of how fast paced our lives have become and how, often, we have little time to escape into books. For this reason – and many others – I am a huge fan of anthologies and other collections of short stories as they allow us a chance to escape into another world in just a few pages. In her introduction to The Best American Travel Writing, Elizabeth Gilbert writes, “I don’t read great travel writing to say, at the conclusion, “I want to go there!” I read great travel writing to feel, at the conclusion, I have now been there.” This collection perfectly fits the bill as the stories take us all across the globe with some of the most talented writers around.
