The latest edition of The Best American Travel Writing, edited this time by Granta founder Bill Buford, lands in bookstores today. Four World Hum stories were included in the notable selections: On the Perils of Travel Writing, by David Farley; Where no Travel Writer has Gone Before, by Rolf Potts; and Cycling India’s Wildest Highway and Face-off on the Congo, both by Jeffrey Tayler.
Several World Hum contributors, writing elsewhere, were also honored in this year’s collection: Tom Bissell and Peter Hessler had stories included, while Leigh Ann Henion, Pico Iyer, Tony Perrottet, Emily Stone and Christopher Vourlias were among the notable selections. Congrats, all.
