For the Love of Books, a look at what's new and exciting in the world of reading

Ten Years a Nomad by Matthew Kepnes. Published by St. Martins

Posted on: March 18, 2019

This is more a memoir than a travelogue, as we join Kepnes on his bid to see the world without much money. Kepnes is hooked on travel after his vacation to Costa Rica, where he meets travelers from all over the world, all of whom are stunned and disgusted with the paltry vacation time Americans receive. After talking with his new friends, Kepnes makes a bold decision, he goes home and quits his job, preparing to travel the world for a year. From the antics of his fellow travelers at hostels, to beautiful locations, love affairs that disintegrate as fast as they form and a longing to find roots after being rootless, this is a story of a man who actually did what most of us only dream of. A vicarious thrill ride
