Book CoverStranger on a Train: Daydreaming and Smoking Around America with Interruptions — By Jenny Diski

More memoir than travelogue, the author writes about crossing the Atlantic as one of a few passengers on a freighter, and then travels around America by train. Nothing much happens along the way, but her musing about the nature of travel, the relative joys of sociability and solitude, and the landscape of the imagination as well as the real one outside her train window is always interesting.
