For the past ten years, Rolf Potts has taken his keen postmodern travel sensibility into the far fringes of five continents for the likes of National Geographic Traveler, Salon.com, 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. Offbeat and insightful, Marco Polo Didn't Go There is an engrossing read for students of travel writing as well as armchair wanderers. Award-winning travel writer, Rolf Potts has reported on his adventures from more than sixty countries and his essays have appeared in over twenty anthologies. Though he rarely stays in one place for more than a few weeks or months, Potts feels somewhat at home in Bangkok, Cairo, Pusan, New Orleans, and north-central Kansas, where he keeps a small farmhouse on thirty acres near his family. Each July he can be found in France, where he's the summer writer-in-residence at the Paris American Academy. (booksense)
