Overview

"A marvelous collection." — The New York Times Book Review

Traversing decades and continents, The Romance of Elsewhere captures the dilemma of the expat with Lynn Freed’s signature honesty and humor. She takes on subjects as disparate as Disneyland, lovers, ecotourism, shopping, serious illness, and the anomaly of writers who blossom into full power only in old age. Freed's new collection further establishes her as a renowned voice in memoir and the exploration of identity.

"If Joan Didion and Fran Lebowitz had a literary love child, she would be Lynn Freed—or, at least, the resulting book would be Lynn Freed’s essay collection, The Romance of Elsewhere. . . in equal turns funny, wise, and sardonic." — Bustle
