A Traveler’s Education is a collection of essays which in the manner of 19th century writers like James and Ruskin reflect the author’s intense “hunger of the eye,” his relish of the unpredictability of travel and of the unexpected ways in which it changes one’s store of life experience. The education which this book describes has taken place in the jungle villages of Honduras, around the banquet table of a Palladian villa in the Veneto in Italy, among the ghosts of Berlin, within the opera houses of Europe, amid the stony rubbish of Israel, and elsewhere.
