Description
In this era of "listicles" ("Ten Best Waterslides on Cruise Ships!") and travel articles that are little more than promotions for luxury hotels and restaurants, guest editor Paul Theroux is more interested in the traveler's baptism by fire. The 24 pieces here—by writers like Julia Cooke, Peter LaSalle, Andrew McCarthy, Michael Paterniti, Stephanie Pearson, Gary Shteyngart, and Colson Whitehead—take readers from Somalian prisons to Greyhound bus terminals, from the rivers of the Alaskan wilderness to the vanishing rain forest of Brazil. By turns hilarious, riveting, and philosophical, the pieces in this collection "illustrate the defiance of the traveler who, against the odds, sets off to find something new to write about," assures Theroux. 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.
