Memoirs of a Coward
By Eric Treanor
Published: June 19, 2011.
The morning after learning that he was to be a father for the third time, the author left home on a solitary trip through Europe.
This slim memoir, filled with anecdotes and commentary on European and American life, is, most of all, a meditation on love and desire.
Beware of journeys that begin quietly, the author discovers: they might end up changing your life.
