Editorial Reviews

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.
