Fiction • 8 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Assertions that all the world's stories have been told are challenged in this unique novel, one which examines storytelling itself. The protagonist shares the author's name, immediately blurring the line between fact and fiction. Witnessing a fatal car crash hurls him out of his comfortable life as a teacher and occasional travel writer. As the voice of Pete, Anthony Heald is the epitome of an eloquent everyman. Heald shifts his tone seamlessly as he captures all the variations on the "travel writing" of the title with a confident, capable performance. Part personal (and, of course, literal) exploration, part murder mystery, and part metaphysical examination of writing itself—this novel and Heald's delivery of it are certainly worth the trip.
