Abstract

This is a collection of creative nonfiction writing including travel memoir, personal essay, and immersion journalism spanning fourteen years and four continents. Themes include overcoming writer's block, traveling as ritual, and seeking the hidden hearts of cities. The pieces feature aspiring romance novelists, the last operational roller skating rink pipe organ in the U.S., and an author whose search to find her voice leads her from the spirit houses of Thailand to the lemon groves of Italy.
