Product Description

To celebrate our second national magazine award for general editorial excellence, we’re offering our three 2022 honored guides as a celebratory bundle!

Stranger’s Guide: Colombia takes you deep into the Andes, home to the country’s cycling obsession. Learn how Colombia has come to dominate global reggaeton, explore the lingering impact of civil unrest and meet some of millions of Venezuelan refugees now entering the country. The guide also includes new works by Gabriel García Márquez never before translated into English.

Stranger’s Guide: Tehran brings readers to the streets of a city few outsiders have had the opportunity to explore. Through new works from Dina Nayeri, Jason Rezaian, and a number of up-and-coming authors, the guide explores the public and private lives of residents of the Iranian capital. It’s a deep and nuanced look at this complex city.

And Stranger’s Guide: California explores the Golden State from numerous vantage points. You’ll accompany an aspiring writer as he attempts to rent a Hollywood apartment that might just have been home to Al Pacino; you will cheer at the sidelines of a J-League basketball game, where Japanese Americans have built community; learn the history of San Francisco’s queer Latinx community and tour the Bay Area’s hidden trash heaps. You’ll also witness the devastation wrought by wildfires across the state, and meet people navigating life while experiencing homelessness.
