Main description:

Because bad places make good stories

The Testicle Festival • Garbage City • Rush Hour on a Samoan Bus • Y our Boss's Bedroom • Ibiza on a Family Vacation • Stonehenge • The Road of Death • A North Korean Gulag • Fucking, Austria • And 92 More!

From the Grover Cleveland Service Area to the Beijing Museum of Tap Water to, of course, Euro Disney, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die brings you lively tales of the most ill-conceived museums, worst theme parks, and grossest Superfund sites that you'll ever have the pleasure of not visiting. Journalist Catherine Price travels the globe for stories of misadventure to which any seasoned traveler can relate—including guest entries from writers such as Nicholas Kristof, Mary Roach, Michael Pollan, Rebecca Solnit, and A. J. Jacobs—and along the way she discovers that the worst experiences are often the ones we'll never forget.

Review quote:

101 Places Not to See Before You Die takes a fascinating and hilarious look at some of the least appealing places and events on the planet—from Montana’s Testicle Festival to the Amsterdam Sexmuseum—and explains in lucid terms just what you’ll be missing out on.”

Review quote:

“A hilarious look at some of the most uninviting, overcrowded, unsanitary, overhyped, and stomach-churning locales on the planet.”

Review quote:

“Amusing.”

Review quote:

“Funny and engaging.”

Review quote:

“Price is a delightful writer who manages to give readers more giggles in under-two-page entries than many writers could in an entire chapter. . . . Highly recommended.”

Review quote:

“Price’s delightful work is utterly hilarious.”

Review quote:

“This clever collection of travel advisories lists all the places that are definitely not worth a trip, including a rendering plant, Times Square on New Year’s Eve, and, bien sûr, Euro Disney.”

Review quote:

“Weird and funny.”

Short description/annotation:

“I had no idea so many god-awful places exist in this world….Catherine Price is a hilarious guide to all that is sucky.”
 —Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: the Education of an Urban Farmer

 

Irreverent and compulsively readable, 101 Places Not to See Before You Die highlights desitinations we can all live without--like Jupiter's Worst Moon, an Outdoor Wedding During the 2021 Reemergence of the Great Eastern Cicada Brood, and fan hours at the Las Vegas Porn Convention--while reminding us why we're willing to put up with the bed bugs and the food poisoning and set out to explore the world.
