Donald Richie's newest collection of travel essays explores all the corners of Asia and slightly beyond as it sweeps through Egypt, India, Bhutan, Mongolia, China, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Borneo, Thailand, Yap, and Japan. Richie is an observer and wanderer, reveling in the freedom to not be himself but always aware of his role as an outsider. Similar to his other works, there remains a sense that these landscapes, these cultures, and these delights will soon be no more.
Donald Richieis a film critic, the foremost explorer of Japanese culture in English, and the author of the acclaimed travel diary/novel Inland Sea.
