Travel writing: the rough and the lonely
The NYT has an interesting look at the reporting, writing and editing of travel books such as Lonely Planet, Rough Guide and Let's Go. The task is not as fun and romantic as it may appear. Says one writer: "There's been a lot of quiet weeping into my keyboard."

Note the name of the woman in the top photograph in the Times story: Amelia Atlas. Could there be a better name for a travel writer?
