David Eimer A Savage Dreamland

David Eimer is my visitor right now. He’s the creator of two books, The Emperor Far Away: Travels on the Fringe of China and A Savage Dreamland: Journeys in Burma, the latter of which we discuss right now.

We begin off this episode speaking about Burma, its politics, and its peoples. However about midway, we shift gears and chat about journey literature. Particularly, I ask David about travelogues, the position of historical past and context within the kinds of journey books he likes, and the way forward for the style.
