Just out in today’s Sunday edition of The Boston Globe, my piece on things Swiss: http://www.bostonglobe.com/lifestyle/travel/2014/11/22/swiss-visit-can-affordable-alternative/IZxxERE2ncOdYOQHNgNdKM/story.html.
This completes the Fall edition of three pieces I published. Two on Switzerland, and one on Japan.
Looking ahead, I’ll be doing three top secret pieces about Japan. OK, fine, one involves Chef Rene Redzepi of NOMA. In conjunction with that, my piece about him is in the January issue of Robb Report.
Meanwhile I’m in the middle of the third volume of Beckett’s Letters, which begin in 1957, and have him refusing a film version of Molloy and a theatrical version of All That Fall. He’s my favorite writer, and his embrace of silence bears upon places I go routinely.
