How is Travel a Folded Form? is a question moving through the American landscape. Formally playful, the book interweaves an episodic tale with quotations and notes (purportedly toward a travel guidebook) springing from two historical perspectives: one, that of Isabella Bird, a famous 19th-century traveler; the other, that of a 21st century American. The book revels in the peculiarities of the national tourist machine, while remaining rooted in the continent's palpable presence.

 

If this is a guidebook, it is perpetually unfinished, uncertain, wondering and wandering toward a destination as changeable as water.
