About this item

If you love David Sedaris, you'll have to listen to Marion Winik's anything-but-traditional tales of traveling with her cranky family in tow. From lost teenagers and missed connections to overpriced drinks and gambling mishaps, Winik - author of seven memoirs and a Morning Edition commentator on NPR - illuminates the unexpected pleasures of journeying out of your comfort zone.

Ranging from Paris to Peru, from New Orleans to Uganda to the Atlantis resort in the Bahamas, these travel essays are full of life, humor, and humanity. Whether you're hitting the road solo or with loved ones trailing behind, you'll want these before you set out.

Marion Winik is the author of the new memoir Highs in the Low Fifties: How I Stumbled Through the Joys of Single Living. It joins Telling, First Comes Love, The Lunch-Box Chronicles, The Glen Rock Book of the Dead, and others in the ongoing saga of her life, now seven volumes. She writes a column at BaltimoreFishbowl.com, reviews books for Newsday, and contributes to the Sun and many other magazines. She has appeared on the Today show, Oprah, and Politically Incorrect; was a commentator on NPR's All Things Considered for 15 years; and was the Answer Lady for Ladies' Home Journal. These days she is a professor in the MFA creative writing program at the University of Baltimore and lives in Baltimore, Maryland, with a couple of her kids and a miniature dachshund.

This is a short audiobook published by Shebooks - high-quality fiction, memoir, and journalism for women, by women.
