Inhaltsangabe: Churning like a third-world traveler’s stomach, Incidents of Egotourism in the Temporary World is a travelogue about finding the unexpected in familiar places. A frustrated shipper of rare books at a Boston bookstore (who refers to himself as "The Egotourist") returns to his parents’ suburban New Jersey home to work temporary jobs and earn enough money to take a hundred buses to Cuzco, Peru. Alternating among essays, dialogues, and short spiels, Incidents of Egotourism in the Temporary World rolls with the Egotourist’s restlessness as he tells of long-distance love, Black Sabbath cover bands, flirtatious administrative assistants, minotauric secretaries, and camaraderie in copy centers, all of it heading toward a hard-earned trip south of the border. Ultimately, the Egotourist discovers that what he sought in far-flung destinations is just as easily found in the unexpected exoticism of home.
Über den Autor: Lee Klein was born in NYC, raised in Lawrenceville, NJ, and graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in English Literature. He's lived in Austin, Boston, and Princeton, NJ, and in May 2004 will leave the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn where he's been for the last four years and move to Iowa City, where he'll attend the Iowa Writers' Workshop in the fall. He edits a semi-literary website called Eyeshot. A very traditional novel (a love story about confronting the unbelievable) will hopefully be published by someone sometime in the future. Everything else can be gleaned from the book if you buy it.
