Publisher's Summary

Pete Ferry 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 students? 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 listeners on fascinating journeys, both geographical and psychological, as it delves into the notion that the line between fact and fiction is often negotiable.

What the Critics Say

"Imagination and literal truth collide intriguingly in this Chinese-box puzzle....This is a witty novel about its own provenance, an exploration of the ambiguous ways in which the writer's imagination works....Novel or not-novel, it's one hell of a fictional debut." (Kirkus Reviews)

pretty good, but...

Somehow this was recommended to me as a mystery novel. it's not bad, but it definitely isn't a mystery novel. good writing about a good writer, with just a few too many literary asides and in-jokes for me. well performed.
