I don't know if there's a story about Indonesia in this book.

With lots of different contributors, "I Should Have Stayed Home: The Worst Trips of Great Writers" is really uneven. There are a couple of gems in the book... but most of the stories weren't terribly interesting. ( )

Entertaining, but the quality of the writing varies widely. Good beach read, and especially good read if you're stuck in an airport and feeling sorry for yourself. Others have had it a lot worse. ( )

I had hoped this would be better, but just ten years after buying it -- which is not that long in book years!] -- I'd clean forgotten about it.
