I am honored that “At a Crossroads” is included in Lonely Planet’s The Kindness of Strangers, alongside stories by such literary greats as Simon Winchester, Jan Morris, and Pico Iyer. Don George edited the volume, and the preface is by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.

Each story is about a traveler who was helped out of difficulties by a stranger. They will warm your heart, frighten you, and make you laugh—but most of all, they will reaffirm your faith in the goodness of humanity.
