In this remarkable collection, Kathleen Lee charts the geography of remote areas of Asia and examines the metaphorical meaning of travel itself. Whether following characters in China, Pakistan, or Egypt, Lee suggests that the quest for identity and meaning in life remain the same. Brilliantly written and beautifully observed, Lee brings to mind such writers as Graham Greene and Bruce Chatwin in her refusal to let travel be either transient or superficial. Travel Among Men is an important book and an auspicious debut.

About the Author:

Kathleen Lee has written for Condé Nast Traveler magazine and her work has appeared in Best American Travel Writing 2000. She lives in Pittsburgh.

Review:

"Kathleen Lee is one of those rare writers who make travel a tangible metaphor, an exploration both of the body and mind, visceral and spiritual, personal and universal. Her compelling tales of characters who discover who they truly are only when removed from the familiarity of a homeland remind the reader that people are by nature most alien to themselves. I treasure these stories."
—Antonya Nelson, author of Living to Tell and Nobody's Girl

"[Lee] has nailed with exquisite precision the reasons some of us can't resist leaving home..."
—Tucson Weekly

 

"Travel Among Men transports readers into exotic and exhilarating locales..."
—Publishers Weekly Daily for Booksellers


"an amazing display of talent...Lee reaches deep into the human psyche; her understanding of people is both realistic and impressive."
-Rocky Mountain News
