Living up to its title, Wonderlands comes fueled by wanderlust and features every kind of wonderland. In fact, the collection's contributors - a mix of established gay writers and the best of the new generation - don't settle for the obvious. Focusing on the sheer visceral thrill of travel, the adventure of it, they set out all over the world and always find something unexpected: love, passion, history, themselves. The result is an anthology of dynamic writing that motivates readers to book their next flight, or at least get them dreaming of other places. And the places are legion. Mack Freidman sets off into the deceptively butch wilds of Alaska. Robert Tewdwr Moss tracks through the back roads of Syria and his own version of "Arabian Nights". Colm Toibin discovers a Spanish Brigadoon and Edward Field drinks tea with Paul Bowles. For Wayne Koestenbaum, Vienna is a city of both high and low culture, and for Philip Gambone, Asia becomes a place of second chances. Raphael Kadushin settles in the the ethereal sun of a Dutch spring, Michael Lowenthal remembers a jarring encounter in the Scottish highlands, and Tim Miller tallies the 1001 beds he has slept in all over the world. And Edmund White, in a classic of elegiac travel writing, recounts his harrowing drive through the Sahara with the man he loves.
