Review:

"The Best American Travel Writing has been the gold standard for short-form travel writing from newspapers, magazines and the Internet since its inception 15 years ago. This year's guest editor - a different one is chosen for each volume - is none other than the godfather of contemporary American travel writing, Paul Theroux. A generation of travel writers owes a debt to Theroux's immersive, first-person narratives, captured with unflinching, sometimes merciless candor...In essay after essay, a theme runs through this volume - people journey, sometimes great distances, often enduring great hardship, only to be redeemed by human connection." -- The New York Times Book Review

"Will gratify both armchair travelers and the most seasoned and fearless thrill-seekers...refreshingly original stories, alternately humorous, nostalgic, exhilarating and horrifying...A thrilling, surprising collection--one of the best in the series." --Kirkus

From the Back Cover:

The Best American Series
In this era of listicles ( Ten Best Waterslides on Cruise Ships! ) and travel articles that are little more than boasting of luxury hotels and restaurants, guest editor Paul Theroux is more interested in the traveler s baptism of fire. The stories in The Best American Travel Writing 2014 take readers from Somalian prisons to Greyhound bus terminals, from the rivers of the Alaskan wilderness to the vanishing rainforests of Brazil, and to so many places in between. At turns hilarious, riveting, and philosophical, the stories in this collection illustrate the defiance of the traveler who, against the odd, sets off to find something new to write about.
The Best American Travel Writing 2014 includes
Elif Batuman, Julia Cooke, A. A. Gill, Janine di Giovanni
Peter LaSalle, Andrew McCarthy, Michael Paterniti, Stephanie Pearson
Gary Shteyngart, Colson Whitehead, and others
[INSERT AUTHOR PHOTO] PAUL THEROUX, guest editor, is the author of many renowned travel books, including The Last Train to Zona Verde, Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Dark Star Safari, and The Great Railway Bazaar. His acclaimed novels include The Mosquito Coast, Hotel Honolulu, and The Lower River.
JASON WILSON, series editor, writes the spirits column for the Washington Post and is the editor of The Smart Set. He is also the author of Boozehound.
