Description

…and Other Stories From Southeast Asia & Central Europe

Autobiographical cartoonist Josh Neufeld takes us on a dramatic tour of places as exotic and different as Thailand, the former Yugoslavia, and New York City. Highlights include Neufeld and traveling companion Sari Wilson on a volunteer expedition to an organic farm in Malaysia, their stint as extras in a Chinese-language Singaporean soap opera, a train trip through war-torn Serbia, and a near-disastrous cave adventure in Thailand.

A Few Perfect Hours explores religion and spirituality, politics and personalities, and the mysteries of everyday life. The stories reflect the backpacker’s conflicted feelings: a yearning for adventure mixed with homesickness and a sense of disconnection, trapped in a reality constantly in flux.

This Xeric Award-winning collection of travel stories is compiled from the pages of Keyhole and The Vagabonds, with an in-depth brand-new story capping off the book.

Praise for A Few Perfect Hours:

“[Provides] a street-level view of other cultures, with nothing whitewashed. . . . The stories often remind us of the point of traveling — to experience and come to terms with the unknown.”
