My advance copy of Lonely Planet’s forthcoming food anthology arrived a week ago, and it’s an edifying read. The thirty-eight stories are set around the world, and all recount food memories that transformed the travel experience—and the traveler. I devoured the book tout de suite!
My contribution, “Couscous and Camaraderie,” features a remarkable woman who welcomed me and my traveling companions into her mountain home in the middle of Moroccan nowhere, and gave us a glimpse into her way of life.
Don George, editor of A Moveable Feast, will host several evenings of readings from the book, two of them in New York: the first one is on November 9th at the Strand bookstore ; the second will be part of the Restless Legs series, on November 10th. I’ll be reading at that one!
