Book Image Not Available
Overview
Travel for Agoraphobics is the story of a woman's life told in vacation trips. In a voice that will engage a wide variety of readers, Sofie Carone, a woman desperate to rid herself of the fear that shackles her, so she can be free to walk, run, even fly into Life and experience all the sweetness and beauty she knows it has to offer. The prose is vivid, the characters literate and often funny in the midst of calamity, despair, and those garden-variety disappointments all humans are prey to.
Description
In a voice that will engage a wide variety of readers, Travel for Agoraphobics tells the story of a woman's life in vacation trips. Like gems strung on a finely crafted chain, the story-chapters of Travel for Agoraphobics sparkle with rich, multi-faceted characters. Zurlo-Cuva's masterful prose metaphorically clasps the reader's hand at the outset and doesn't let go until the final page--and then only slowly. At the center is Sofie, a woman desperate to rid herself of the fear that shackles her, so she can be free to walk, run, even fly into Life and experience all the sweetness and beauty she knows it has to offer. Sofie is the woman next door, our best friend, our sister. We join her on her journey, admiring her determination, sympathizing with her despair, and relishing the flashes of her bittersweet sense of humor. Even the seemingly simplest events in the novel take on unexpected depth. It is at once a family story, a love story, and the story of this woman's quest to find a way to live in peace in a world she finds equal parts terrifying and full of wonder.
