Descrição

Advance praise for Travel Writing: 'The book is totally captivating and page-turning on one level, beautifully written and in touch with the good living of life (in a Hemingway sort of way) on another level, and all the while it raises all kinds of fascinating questions about fiction and fact, the writing process and teaching of literature. That it does all this and manages to be always honest and full of soul is truly remarkable.' -- Dave Eggers'An ingenious novel: part mystery, part love story, partly a commentary on the art of writing fiction itself. A post-modern Rear Window with some snappy travel writing thrown in. A splendid debut by a novelist who has clearly spent a lot of time thinking about novels.' -- Joe Queenan, author of 'Balsamic Dreams: A Short, But Self-Important History of the Baby Boomer Generation' Pete Ferry, our narrator, teaches high school English in the wealthy suburb of Lake Forest outside of Chicago and moonlights as a travel writer. On his way home after work one evening he witnesses a car accident that kills a beautiful woman named Lisa Kim. But was it an accident? Could Pete have prevented it? And did it actually happen, or is this just an elaborate tale he concocts to impart the power of story to his restless teenage charges? Why can't he stop thinking about Lisa Kim? And what might his obsession with her mean to his relationship with his girlfriend, Lydia?With humor, tenderness, and suspense, Travel Writing takes readers on fascinating journeys, both geographical and psychological, and delves into the notion that the line between fact and fiction is often negotiable.
