Getting Away

I first read Raphael Kadushin's writing in "Wonderlands: Good Gay Travel Writing" and was amazed at the collection. Now he follows that book up with "Big Trips: More Good Gay Travel Writing" and it is just as amazing as the first book. Kadushin brings together some of the A-list gay authors including Edmund White, Trebor Healey, Dale Peck and Brian Bouldrey.
The book rests somewhere between memoir and travel fiction and each selection is a gem. The selections are straight forward and fascinating to read and are very different from each other. There is a great deal of literary talent in this volume and the places written about range from Corfu to Italy to Britain to America. Yet they all have one thing in common--a new kind of travel writing and a sense of love.
We see traveling as a collection of impressions that endure and when the thoughts are recorded, it is possible to revisit places when we want to---and if we can't go we can read someone else's impressions.
