The Best American Travel Writing 2020 with Jason Wilson

by Jeremy Bassetti
Best American Travel Writing 2020

Every year, Jason Wilson compiles the best examples of travel writing published in the previous year and publishes them in The Best American Travel Writing anthology.

Jason last joined us to talk about the coronavirus pandemic and the future of travel writing back in April. Now he’s back to talk about The Best American Travel Writing 2020 (Mariner Books / Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2020).

But Jason also gives us a glimpse into the process of editing the anthology, some updated thoughts on the state and future of travel writing during the pandemic, and some reflections on the genre of travel writing.

Jason Wilson is the author of several other books like Cider Revival: Dispatches from the Orchard (2019), Godforsaken Grapes (2018), and Boozehound (2010).
