From popular and acclaimed New York Times travel writer Matt Gross (The Frugal Traveller Getting Lost), a captivating case for recovering our ability to be independent travellers, told through a series of beautifully written reflections on the rigors and joys of traveling outside the recommendations (and constraints) of travel guides.
While writing his celebrated Frugal traveller column for the New York Times , Matt Gross began to feel hemmed in by its focus on what he thought of as traveling on the cheap at all costs." When his editor offered him the opportunity to do something less structured, the Getting Lost series was born, and Gross began a more immersive form of travel that allowed him to lose his way all over the globe"- from developing-world megalopolises to venerable European capitals, from American sprawl to Asian archipelagos. And that's what the never-before-published material in The Turk Who Loved Apples is all about: breaking free of the constraints of modern travel and letting the place itself guide you. It's a variety of travel you'll love to experience vicariously through Matt Gross- and maybe even be inspired to try for yourself.
