AUTHOR

Forman, Gayle

SUMMARY

In these eight interconnected travel stories, journalist Gayle Forman traces the trajectory from her relatively comfortable life in New York' s Hell' s Kitchen to her sometimes extreme-- and extremely personal-- experiences in some of the most exotic spots on earth In this extraordinary memoir-- now issued in paperback-- Gayle Forman takes us with her to the mountain hideaways of Kazakhstan' s Tolkien fanatics and inside the townships of South Africa' s lost tribe of Israel. She introduces us to a wild assortment of characters: lovelorn Tongan transvestites, charismatic Tanzanian rap stars, precocious Cambodian street kids, out-of-work Dutch prostitutes. In the artful interplay of these eight lively, thoughtful stories, she reveals how all of these diverse lives-- as well as our own-- are being inextricably altered by the ever-shrinking world that we share. Because, she writes, "To forget the humanity in others is to risk forgetting one' s own."Forman, Gayle is the author of 'You Can't Get There from Here A Year on the Fringes of a Shrinking World', published 2006 under ISBN 9781594865510 and ISBN 1594865515.
