An anthology of some of the best writing on the worst of travel, Wish You Weren't Here! brings together twenty-one fantastic pieces that span the centuries as well as the continents. P. J. O'Rourke attains reverse enlightenment on India's Grand Trunk Road. Ludwig Bemelmans hides a toy poodle from an overeager butcher on a luxury ocean liner. Christopher Buckley learns the drawbacks of group travel in the jungles of Belize, and Jerome K. Jerome experiences the downside of traveling with cheese. Edited by Cecil Kuhne, an experienced travel writer and editor of On the Edge and The Armchair Paddler, Wish You Weren't Here! is a delightful book, a side-splitting read that will remind you why it's good to be home.
