Marco Polo Didn't Go There : Stories and Revelations from One Decade as a Post-Modern Travel Writer
Marco Polo Didn't Go There is a collection of rollicking travel tales from a young writer USA Today has called ""Jack Kerouac for the Internet Age."" For the past ten years, Rolf Potts has taken his keen postmodern travel sensibility into the far fringes of five continents for such prestigious publications as National Geographic Traveler, Salon, and The New York Times Magazine. This book documents his boldest, funniest, and most revealing journeys-from getting stranded without water in the Libyan desert, to crashing the set of a Leonardo DiCaprio movie in Thailand, to learning the secrets of Tantric sex in a dubious Indian ashram. Marco Polo Didn't Go There is more than just an entertaining journey into fascinating corners of the world. The book is a unique window into travel writing, with each chapter containing a ""commentary track""-endnotes that reveal the ragged edges behind the experience and creation of each tale. Offbeat and insightful, this book is an engrossing read for students of travel writing as well as armchair wanderers.
