Bad Trips: a sometimes terrifying, sometimes hilarious collection of writing on the perils of the road, edited and with introduction by Keath Fraser.
Some of the best-known writers of the twentieth century share stories about "bad trips," and I don't mean on drugs... They're talking about everything from losing their luggage, to getting lost in the wilderness. Authors include: David Mamet, Martin Amis, Umberto Eco, Bob Geldof, John Updike, Paul Theroux and Graham Greene.
Of course, the part of the book that caught my eye, is the map. I especially like combining the metaphors of map, jigsaw puzzle and being set adrift on an ice flow.
Can anyone identify the location of the map on the cover? It appears to be part of Canada's Northwest Territories or Nunavut.
