My book talks are coming at you from a librarian, not a reviewer. You won’t find me talking about style or craft, why I think this could’ve been better or what worked or didn’t work. I only do book talks on books I liked and want other people to know about. So if it’s here I probably think it won’t injure your brain if you read it.
Kim Dinan had a nice house, a car, a great job, and all the trappings of the American Dream by her mid-twenties… but she also had a nagging sense that she was missing out on something bigger. The feeling grew, and unhappiness seeped in. Finally, Kim realized she not only wanted to – she needed to – travel. Her husband agreed, and the two of them sold everything they owned to travel the world for three years.
Kim’s memoir talks about her experience in other countries, the need that sent her out of her comfort zone and into unfamiliar territory, and how writing along the way helped her sort out her feelings about modern life, society, and on a more personal level – her marriage.
I had the chance to talk with Kim on the Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire podcast. Listen in to learn more about Kim and her world travels, and how they culminated in a memoir.
