Description

"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.
