Editorial Reviews

Review

"The text also illustrates a deeper sense of place, recalling the emotions of particular moments and evoking how the visited locations are special.  Such details make Dimond's travel writing deeper than most."                         -- Katie Asher, FOREWORD REVIEWS

Review

2020 IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Winner in Cover Design, small format, nonfiction 2019 Kirkus Reviews' Best Indie Book Awards―Best Indie Biographies & Memoirs “A beautifully crafted memoir, weaving vivid descriptions and inner truths, suffering and celebration, into a tapestry of family revelations, love of the details of life, and worldwide adventure.” ―Jack Kornfield, author of No Time Like the Present and The Wise Heart “A beautiful, sensitive, intense exploration of the restless human heart, searching for peace, love, and home. Wandering far and wide―some of us only do this in the imagination―Dimond physically travels to those foreign places to find her true self, and we get to come along with her. A moving memoir full of food, paintings, landscapes, human hope and yearning.” ―Natalie Goldberg, author of Writing Down the Bones and Let the Whole Thundering World Come Home “More than your average travel memoir, Bowing to Elephants elegantly weaves together the author’s love of exotic locales with her internal quest for meaning and reconciliation with the past. A beautifully written, evocative, and moving literary journey.” ―Sean Murphy, Hemingway Award–winning author of One Bird, One Stone and The Time of New Weather “This beautifully written memoir is a chronicle of inner and outer adventures, grounded in deliciously detailed descriptions of fine food and fine art, of city streets and wild landscapes, of architecture and literature, and exalted by the author’s quest to respond to the cries of the world with compassionate action.” ―Mirabai Starrr, author of Caravan of No Despair and God of Love “The prose is gorgeous and novelistic. . . . A luminous, engrossing meditation.” ―Kirkus Reviews, starred review “. . . the vein of Eat, Pray, Love . . . Dimond is a craftsman, filling her book with potent images.” ―Indie Reader Reviews “A beautifully crafted memoir, weaving vivid descriptions, inner truths, suffering, and celebration into a tapestry of family revelations, love of the details of life, and worldwide adventure.” ―Jack Kornfield, author of No Time Like the Present “This is a book worth savoring, with deftly told stories of childhood loneliness and neglect woven along vivid tales of people encountered at the ends of the Earth.” ―BlueInk Review, starred review “Each place is depicted in great visual detail, and all five senses are played upon, make the related experiences tangible. The text also illustrates a deeper sense of a place, recalling the emotions of particular moments and evoking how the visited locations are special. Such details make Dimond’s travel writing deeper than most.” ―Foreword Reviews --This text refers to the paperback edition.
