    1. The variety of voices and approaches to travel charmed me. I remember particularly enjoying "Bus Ride to Big Jesus" by Rick Maddocks. "The Ballet of Patrick Blue-Ass" made me long to see Iceland, although since I am basically bookish and sedentary and Iceland holidays seem to be for the vigorous and outdoorsy I have not yet attempted the trip.

    2. 3.5, bumped up to 4 starslike most, if not all anthologies, some of the tales in this collection work better than othersyet altogether, they do the trick of transporting the reader away from the everyday, and cultivate a yearning for experiences apart from mass-market, sanitized and pre-digested travel

    3. I couldn't stand it. Most of the stories are really miserable, and many convinced me that I never want to visit the country featured.

    4. I couldn't really get engaged with these stories. I didn't finish and returned the book to the library when it was due.
