Today I guest blog on Madam Mayo, the wonderful blog of C.M. Mayo, novelist and traveler. Her guidance for visitors is to provide five links about things related to the book being promoted. I thought about that for a bit, but it didn’t take long to get an idea. The reason the Everywhere Stories anthology went in the direction it did (“It’s a Dangerous World”) is because some of my favorite novels are set in dangerous situations overseas. Far more than five came to mind, but I picked some of the best known writers–Tim O’Brien, Ann Patchett, Robert Stone, Russell Banks, Barbara Kingsolver–and described the novels that fit best.
