The house on Via Gombito: writing by American women abroad
New Rivers Press, Oct 1, 1997 - Literary Collections - 505 pages
The third printing of the most highly regarded anthology published by New Rivers Press is the occasion for a new edition. The House on Via Gombito, published in 1991, is a collection of forty-six travel memoirs by women living or traveling outside of the United States. The writers include Diane Glancy, Patricia Hampl, and Nancy Raeburn. Whether the writing is of "A Walk on Hadrian's Wall", or a "Return to Warsaw", the portraits drawn are engaging, refreshing and unique. Publishers Weekly has said: "The nearly 50 short pieces of travel writing that comprise this volume display such a wealth of perspectives and explore such a variety of locales that the book is a splendid adventure in itself".
