I Should Have Stayed at Home: Worst Trips of Great Writers (Travel Literature Series)

I Should Have Stayed Home: The Worst Trips of Great Writers (Travel Literature Series) - Roger Rapoport, Marguerita Castanera Roger Rapoport has compiled an entertaining anthology of travel stories from several famous writers. Ranging from Rick Steves' hashish-stoned Afghani driver to Isabel Allende's morning sickness in Paris to Katherine Neville falling down a huge hole in Prague, the tales go from humor to disaster and back again.As with any anthology, it's a trifle uneven. Overall, though, it's a good read for those who enjoy travel -- even from the vantage point of an armchair.
