The Traveler's Companion

340 pages5 hours


It’s the summer of 1985. What do you do if you’re just out of college and not quite out of the closet? Mark Dearborn’s solution is to shed his girlfriend and his stuffy New England family and follow his adventurous friend Lint across the Atlantic. In Paris, they meet the compellingly erratic Ricka Stein along with priest-in-training Philip. When Ricka drags them all to Venice, Mark finds himself torn between a moody young Italian and an older American with an inconvenient boyfriend. Then a disastrous side trip to Rome rearranges everything. David Foley’s wryly insightful first novel captures the excitement and confusion of getting lost, messing up, and breaking free.
