"Why do I travel? Why does anyone of us travel?" wonders Bill Bryson in his introduction. And while the various contributors to this collection of 24 pieces— including Michael Chabon, Sara Corbett, Dave Eggers, Alice Gregory, Pico Iyer, Helen Macdonald, Stephanie Pearson, Paul Theroux, and Thomas Chatterton Williams—all travel for different reasons, one thing is for certain: they come back with great stories. Whether traversing the Arctic by dogsled, attending a surreal film festival in North Korea, or strolling the streets of rapidly changing Havana, their insights into the world and the human condition are illuminating and enthralling.
