Descripción de editorial
“Wanderlust for the Soul” is a compilation of 10 short stories. Each story has a protagonist who is faced with a dilemma - like Karen wants to maximize her remaining days before she dies of cancer; Muffin, the dog doesn’t want to get left behind when his family goes on vacation; the Chang kids are finding it hard to adjust to the fast urban life of Shanghai; Alexandra, a successful ramp model cannot commit to long-term relationships and doesn’t know why. And like many of us do, the protagonist takes a break and goes on a holiday.
The new place, the setting, the change in context, the new sights and experiences - they all help give our protagonist “new eyes”, or you can say “a new lens” with which to look at the world and their own situation. Well, they connect new dots and end up resolving their dilemma.
So why should you read this book? Simply because these stories are an easy and fun read, yet carry subtle messages on life’s inherent simplicity and the joys of discovering oneself. They are also a celebration of travel, the way it opens us up exposing to the sheer beauty, diversity and plurality in this world. Each story carries vivid descriptions of places and anecdotes that bring the character of a place alive, whether it’s Hawaii, or Switzerland, or Goa, or Africa.
I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did in experiencing these places and writing this book!
