    Berlin Dispatch: Chasing the Golden Pretzel

    I didn’t notice any Golden Pretzels in the window as we walked into Feinbäckerei Gabriel , the first bakery Jürgen recommended, on Florastrasse, about half a mile west of the Pankow stop on the S-Bahn. But a bakery doesn’t have to have a Golden Pretzel to be outstanding, does it? Afte...

    On this day in 2007, I attempted my very first taxi adventure in Buenos Aires. At the time, I never imagined it would become the first of many taxi adventures, that it would eventually lead me to New York, to Berlin, to my own taxi license, to so many people and places I couldn’t have...

    The editor brought up the inevitable comparison of my book with Eat, Pray, Love. I know Driving Hungry is different, but I couldn’t really articulate how. The difference, I think, is that after many people read EPL, particularly women, they felt a need to go on a three country journey...
