Marc Nieson, author of Schoolhouse: Lessons on Love & Landscape

In Wanderlust, Karen Gershowitz once again transports us across the globe, and this time her whirlwind digest includes, well, digestion! From sipping lulada in Colombia to nibbling ugali in Tanzania, her tongue remains intrepid, her curiosity unquenchable, her storytelling delectable. “All artists are driven by a need to try something new, push the medium a bit further,” she writes, and these pages prove that with a cherry on top. All puns aside, Gershowitz reminds us that travel’s truest feast comes from the connections we make across the tablecloth, across perceived borders of state, and taste, and fear. This is a guidebook to breaking bread.
