Okay, I give up. I really want to join in on The Armchair Traveler challenge because I have quite a few travel memoirs and plenty of novels that easily fit the qualifications, most of which have been taunting me for a while. Lesley at A Life in Books is hosting. I'm going to start with what happens to be near my chair and add to this post when I feel like it.
2. Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton (Africa)
3. Nectar in a Sieve by Kamala Markandaya (India)
4. Olive Season by Carol Drinkwater (France)
5. Learning to Bow by Bruce Feiler (Japan)
6. Howard's End by E. M. Forster (Edwardian England)
7. A House in Corfu by Emma Tennant (Greece)
8. All the Pretty Horses by Cormac McCarthy (Mexico)
9. Extra Virgin by Annie Hawes (Italy)
10. Appointment in Samarra by John O'Hara (Gibbsville, Pennsylvania)
11. Last Days of Summer by Steve Kluger or The Brooklyn Follies by Paul Auster (New York)
13. While I Live by John Marsden (Australia)
14. Angels of a Lower Flight by *author's name removed* (Haiti)
I think I'll stop right there, for now, but I appreciate Lesley's flexibility because I typically do a lot of substituting.
