The stories in Off To The Next Wherever examine desires to know those greener pastures, that comfort zone, a lasting sense of rootedness and belonging just around the next bend. They speak of wanderlust as solace, of place as identity, grounded in the question of how to live beyond mere survival as we make tracks inward or else try to escape from ourselves.
