“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts”. So said Mark Twain, and Kevin Dolgin has always agreed. Years ago, having decided to open his own mind, he found himself afflicted with a serious case of wanderlust, which he now hopes to spread to others through this show. A perfect travel companion, with only a slightly eccentric eye, Kevin reveals destinations around the world, seeking out and speaking with locals, inveterate travelers and the occasional oddball. Not so much concerned with the practicalities of travel, WANDERLUST is, itself, a little voyage into the odd corners, little known crannies and unexpected adventures of life .
Wanderlust with Kevin Dolgin
Writer, businessman, musician and university professor and originally from New York, Kevin Dolgin has lived in France for over twenty years and has traveled to… well, most places (exceptions include Australia and Cleveland).
Since 2005, he has written a regular travel column for McSweeney’s Internet Tendency titled “Kevin Dolgin Tells You About Places You Should Go in Europe”. A collection of these columns, plus original material, was published in June, 2010. The result, “The Third Tower Up From the Road”, was warmly received by critics, including Publishers Weekly which gave it a starred review, stating: “… Dolgin has friends (and the ability to make new ones) all over the world, a droll sense of humor and an insatiable curiosity about local history. Again and again, he introduces his readers to charming, unique aspects of familiar and exotic locales, doing an excellent job conveying sights “too wonderful to be imagined.” A highly enjoyable read, this should charm any sightseer, and inspire a number of travel plans.”
