This is easily the coolest thing that’s happened to The Misanthropic Hostess blog since…well…forever.
As Ann explains in the introduction, we share a certain sisterhood and alma mater in common. More importantly though, Ann is a wonderful writer. If you aren’t already, you need to read her blog and her books. Fair warning: if you have even the slightest predisposition toward wanderlust, Ann’s simultaneously lush and elegant narrative of her adventures abroad (and domestically) will stoke that flame into a full-grown fire breathing beast.
If you don’t believe me–and assuming I’m correctly interpreting (errr…stalking) Ann’s tweets, Ms. Mah has been listed as a notable travel writer in 2012’s Best American Travel Writing anthology. Do you have any idea how big time that is?
I borrowed the thumbnail image from Ann’s blog. It’s the American cover of her first book, Kitchen Chinese.
