Literary Destinations: Five Books To Help You Escape

You’re counting down the last days of summer and longing for the vacation you didn’t take. Or maybe you’re already planning for the next. Why not audition a few hot spots with these varied new releases? In these stories — three novels and two works of nonfiction — a history teacher, a wry angst-filled teen, a budding celebrity chef, an intrepid spice hunter, and Ernest Hemingway himself whisk you to vacation spots around the world. Under sunny skies in small-town America, Europe, the Caribbean and the Middle East, these characters discover the pleasures of new foods and idyllic landscapes — and sometimes, they also find themselves. Maybe, in their stories, you will find yourself too.
