"An engaging memoir of travel, love, and finding oneself." -- Kirkus Reviews Newly recovered from a quarter-life meltdown, Clara Bensen decided to test her comeback by signing up for an online dating account. She never expected to meet Jeff, a wildly energetic university professor with a reputation for bucking convention. They barely know each other's last names when they agree to set out on a risky travel experiment spanning eight countries and three weeks. The catch? No hotel reservations, no plans, and best of all, no baggage. No Baggage is at once a romance, a travelogue, and a bright modern take on the age-old questions: How do you find the courage to explore beyond your comfort zone? Can you love someone without the need for labels or commitment? Is it possible to truly leave your baggage behind?

The acclaimed, award-winning novelist takes us on some of his most memorable journeys in this revelatory collection of travel essays that spans the globe, from the Caribbean to Scotland to the Himalayas.Now in his mid-seventies, Russell Banks has indulged his wanderlust for more than half a century. ''Since childhood, I've longed for escape, for rejuvenation, for wealth untold, for erotic and narcotic and sybaritic fresh starts, for high romance, mystery, and intrigue,'' he writes in this compelling anthology. The longing for escape has taken him from the ''bright green islands and turquoise seas'' of the Caribbean islands to peaks in the Himalayas, the Andes, and beyond.In Voyager, Russell Banks, a lifelong explorer, shares highlights from his travels: interviewing Fidel Castro in Cuba; motoring to a hippie reunion with college friends in Chapel Hill, North Carolina; eloping to Edinburgh with his fourth wife, Chase; driving a sunset orange metallic Hummer down Alaska's Seward Highway.In each of these remarkable essays, Banks considers his life and the world. In Everglades National Park, this ''perfect place to time-travel,'' he traces his own timeline. ''I keep going back, and with increasing clarity I see more of the place and more of my past selves. And more of the past of the planet as well.'' Recalling his trips to the Caribbean in the title essay, ''Voyager,'' Banks dissects his relationships with the four women who would become his wives. In the Himalayas, he embarks on a different quest of self-discovery. ''One climbs a mountain not to conquer it, but to be lifted like this away from the earth up into the sky,'' he explains. Pensive, frank, beautiful, and engaging, Voyager brings together the social, the personal, and the historical, opening a path into the heart and soul of this revered writer.
