An anthology of some of the best writing on the worst of travel, Wish You Weren’t Here! brings together twenty-one fantastic pieces that span the centuries as well as the continents. P. J. O’Rourke attains reverse enlightenment on India’s Grand Trunk Road. Ludwig Bemelmans hides a toy poodle from an overeager butcher on a luxury ocean liner.
