Excess baggage alert! All you need to travel this summer is a good book. Explore 1930s Berlin, take a trip to Alabama or drift away to Thailand.

I Write About What I'm Afraid Of

In this video, John Irving talks about how he writes and his new book AVENUE OF MYSTERIES.

As we grow older - most of all, in what we remember and what we dream - we live in the past. Sometimes, we live more vividly in the past than in the present.

You can find out more about the book here: http://po.st/BuyAvenueOfMysteries
