Overview

From the Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Kindness of Strangers, a vivid, humorous, and utterly candid exploration of incurable wanderlust.

Mike McIntyre can't stand still. Luckily, something remarkable happens wherever he roams. With his keen eye and original voice, he portrays evocative travel moments both big and small. In Sarajevo, he skis with soldiers at the height of the Bosnian War. Outside a Mexican bullring, two boys mistake him for their idol, a professional wrestler. And returning to a tropical paradise, he's assigned the same hotel room where an older woman broke his heart five years earlier.

Along the way, he challenges a rival to a goat race in Saudi Arabia, searches for his missing shoes with barefooted villagers in Honduras, plunges through the Himalayas in aviation's most terrifying final approach, and joins the U.S. Navy--for one week, anyway. To top it off, he reveals his favorite travel tip gleaned from forty years of globetrotting.

By turns hilarious, wistful, and dramatic, The Distance Between draws a captivating self-portrait of a lifelong vagabond and a writer critics call "a reader's dream" (San Diego Union-Tribune).
