New articles and books by writers living abroad (and closer to home)


The New York Times recently published a couple of great travel pieces by people who have actually lived in the places they are writing about:

In Reflections of a Paris Left Behind, the author, Steven Erlanger, who lived in Paris for five years, says, “But to live and work in a place forces you to love it differently, with more will and less passion.”  

And in Lessons From Living in London, Sarah Lyall writes, “The things we notice when we visit cities are rarely the things we notice when we live in them.”

closer to home

Writer Abroad couldn’t agree more with both of these statements. That’s why she thinks writers should live abroad and also why she finds many travel articles she reads in American publications lacking a certain insight about the featured destinations.

Writer Abroad has also been doing some travel writing on the city she currently calls home. In Swiss-made Masterpiece, Writer Abroad writes about the luxurious side of Zurich (not hard to do since it’s one of the most expensive cities in the world—club sandwich for $39, anyone?) for Singapore Airlines’ Priority Magazine this month.

In other news from writers living abroad, Diccon Bewes has a new book out about Switzerland. In Slow Train to Switzerland, he tells the story of the first conducted tour of Switzerland, and how that changed both the Swiss and the way people travel.

Finally, news from a writer closer to home: one of Writer Abroad’s friends from high school (on the advice of her literary agent!) has gone ahead and self-published her first book, Lost & Found. She is an amazing writer, so Writer Abroad can’t wait to read it.
