MEMORABLE PASSAGE
"The goal of the writer—whether traveler, memoirist, journalist, novelist, or one who keeps a log just for himself is to live with the keenness of the foreigner, to experience, wide-eyed, the sensations aroused and the events offered up by his peculiar surrounds and then to evoke them so brightly on the page that the reader, too, experiences the
foreigner’s frisson: discovers him or herself invigorated, transported to another rich and miraculous life."
