Description
In his introduction, guest editor Andrew McCarthy notes that the best travel writing is about "the anonymous and solitary traveler capturing a moment in time and place, giving meaning to his or her travels." The 24 pieces here—from writers like Kevin Baker, Benjamin Busch, Patricia Marx, Maud Newton, Paul Salopek, Gary Shteyngart, Iris Smyles, Christopher Solomon, and Paul Theroux—demonstrate just that spirit, whether it is the story of a marine returning to Iraq a decade after his deployment, a writer retracing the footsteps of humanity as it spread from Africa throughout the world, or a traveler looking for love on a physics-themed cruise down the Rhone River. Since its inception in 1915, the Best American series has become the premier annual showcase for the country's finest short fiction and nonfiction. For this edition, as for the others in the series, the series editor first reviewed hundreds of periodicals from the previous publishing year, selecting between 50 and 100 outstanding works, before the guest editor made the final selection of the very best pieces.
