I'm totally thrilled to have an essay included in Lonely Planet's new anthology, An Innocent Abroad, and stupendously honored to be included with some of the writers I admire most in the world (seriously: Ann Patchett, Jan Morris, Pico Iyer, Dave Eggers, Richard Ford, Tin Cahill, Cheryl Strayed, Jane Smiley ... the list goes way on). Please join me on December 13th at the world's best bookstore, along with editor extraordinaire Don George and amazing writers Jim Benning, Jeff Greenwald, Larry Habegger, Jenna Scatena, and Jane Smiley, as we read from our stories and sign books! Hope we'll see you soon!
