Author: Alan Cheuse
Description

A collection of lyrical travel writings from celebrated writer and NPR commentator Alan Cheuse. Along
with luggage and tickets, we always travel with that which it is impossible to leave behind: ourselves, our
spirits, our souls. By definition the best travel writing carries us on a soul-journey, the sort of trip that
dramatizes how the heart learns about its place in the world. In A Trance After Breakfast, poetic wanderer
and novelist (To Catch the Lightning) Alan Cheuse has crafted a collection that masterfully exceeds such
standards. He lures the reader around the world, from Bali and New Zealand to Mexico and back home
again to his native New Jersey, making the foreign familiar and the familiar slightly foreign. Collected from
such celebrated publications as Gourmet, the Antioch Review, and the San Diego Reader, the dispatches
in A Trance After Breakfast will enchant, captivate, and transport readers.

"Cheuse's eclectic journeys shine a spotlight on one of the greatest rewards of travel, "to know...
