    Some good stories some better some less interesting to me I skipped around rather than trying to read it straight through which was fun My favorite story was the one about the young woman who went to the ashram in India I liked it so much that I copied out a paragraph that I felt applied to my own life so I could keep it The one about the friends redecorating the motel was also amusingThe intro talks about what is lesbian fiction which was interesting in it's own right what DOES that mean? I thought the uestion was uniue until I picked up a short story collection of lesbian writers see Hers in which the editor asks the exact same uestion in the introduction I think the books were written around the same time so perhaps this was something the lesbian community was struggling with Both books feel a little dated they are nearly 20 yrs old after all but to all the young lezzies out there it's good to know your roots

    I very much enjoyed the varied stories in this collection Some of them had little to do with physical travel and to do with the growth of the narrator There was one that talked about visits to independent bookstores Another detailing a trip to Vietnam that was really an attempt by the author to understand her brother's actions as possibly a result of his wartime experiences All were well written and engaging

    Full Disclosure I have an essay in this collection Still there are so many good stories included The very last one about traveling through independent bookstores is one of the best
