Beautifully crafted, perceptive, sometimes shocking, and often heartbreaking stories that examine the impact of cheap international travel on modern lives and relationships

A boys' weekend in Eastern Europe spirals out of control. A bleeding tourist is rescued by a stranger in downtown Toronto. A middle-aged woman vacationing in Tunisia considers the local options for love. An unemployed man shares his fantasies of a sex tour of Arizona with his long-suffering girlfriend. A woman is drawn into an impromptu but life-changing football game in the heart of the Amazon. With wit, wisdom, insight, and pathos, this collection examines men and women of all ages who, through the advent of discount air travel, play out their lives and loves across the globe. It brilliantly captures the isolation, dislocation, and occasional epiphanies of those who find themselves 1,000 miles from home, and those who long to be.

About the Author:

Rodge Glass is a novelist and the author of the biography Alasdair Gray: A Secretary's Biography, which won a Somerset Maugham Award.

From Booklist:

The title of this short story collection truthfully describes the themes of the book’s 14 short fiction pieces, 10 previously published in a variety of venues, one translated into Serbian. The stories themselves showcase Glass’ formidable talent: they are packed with emotion, with the vagaries of behavior caused by familial relationships and friendships, and they are told with shrewdness and wit. Threads of loss permeate the plots, while the use of voice, tone, and point of view brings characters alive. Although many of the stories are told in first-person singular, in “Orientations #1, #2, and #3,” Glass skillfully uses second person to depict place and skewer characters. Several stories feature the alcoholic adventures and erotic experiences of men flying off on business or for escape or both. “Intervention,” a dazzling breakup rant, takes place totally in the fantasies of a man flying back to a newly empty home. Brilliant writing, the variety of locales, and the bold portrayal of character will delight short story and literary-fiction readers and may create demand for Glass’ previous novels. --Ellen Loughran
