Overview
"Whether he's in Cuba, Mozambique, or attempting to climb Mount Ararat, Shacochis] vividly places you in both the past and present of his destinations . . . his] restlessness and recklessness, all couched in a headlong maximalist prose, are impossible to resist."--Boston Globe

"Shacochis' fiery, wrought prose is on full display . . . This is travel writing at its finest." --Men's Journal, a Best Book of the Month

Best known for his sweeping international and political fiction narratives, including The Woman Who Lost Her Soul, which won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize and was finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Bob Shacochis began his writing career as a pioneering journalist and contributing editor for Outside Magazine and Harper's. Kingdoms in the Air brings together the very best of Shacochis's culture and travel essays in one livewire collection that spans his global adventures and his life passions; from surfing, to his obsession with the South American dorado, to the time he went bushwhacking in Mozambique. Replete with Shacochis's signature swagger, humor, and crystalline wisdom, Kingdoms in the Air is a majestic and essential collection from one of our most important writers.
