Guest Host: Sam Litzinger

We may spend the summer daydreaming about trips to exotic corners of the globe — although not all us will be lucky enough to jet off to them. But great writing often has the power to transport readers to foreign worlds. We talk with author and book reviewer Alan Cheuse about his new collection of travel essays, and how travel literature can ignite our imaginations.

Guests

  • Alan Cheuse Book Reviewer, All Things Considered; Author, "A Trance After Breakfast;" Author, "To Catch the Lightning: A Novel of American Dreaming"
