Overview

Transient: A Colored Girl's Travels by Salihah Simone

TRANSIENT: A COLORED GIRL'S TRAVELS is the story of a brown girl with an American passport and very little compunction about pursuing what she wants-even when she should stop and think it over.
Salihah dances, drinks, dates and attempts to find her purpose in this autobiographical novel that chronicles a young woman's twenties. With a little flirting, a lot of signs from her guardian angel and her crew of eclectic travel buddies she makes her way across four continents. Her companions on these escapades include a half-Ethiopian half-Brazilian dating guru, a gay retired ballet dancer and a collection of loves from the beach who can never come home to her real life.

"Transient" is a unique travel memoir and autobiographical novel because few women of color venture off the beaten path and even fewer write about it. Simone hopes her anecdotes will encourage more women of color to participate in international experiences that have historically been the purview of white women.

About the Author

Growing up, she traveled throughout the Caribbean, South America, Europe and Africa with her parents. As a freshman in high school, her parents sent her to the Cote d'Ivoire as an exchange student to be sure that she would understand how fortunate she was to have been born middle class in America. She continued her international studies in college studying photography and modern languages.

Simone has spent the better part of the last fifteen years living in South America, Africa and the Middle East with brief stints in Europe and Southeast Asia. She works as a communications consultant for non-governmental organizations and grass-roots campaigns concerned with women's health and girls' education.
