A product of the California suburbs, Pam Mandel was overlooked and unexceptional. When her father ships her off on a youth group tour of Israel, he inadvertently catapults his seventeen-year-old daughter into a world of European backpackers, seize-the-day Israelis, and the fallout of cold war-era politics. Border violence hadn’t been on the birthright tour agenda. But then neither had domestic violence, going broke, getting wasted, or getting lost.
Pam Mandel joins me on the podcast to talk about her new book The Same River Twice (Skyhorse 2020) and the realities of writing proposals for travel memoirs. We also talk about solo female travel and memory in memoir.
