The KC writer, Evan Connell, is best know for his Mr. Bridge and Mrs. Bridge novels, but his non-fiction is excellent, too. A Long Desire is wonderful telling of those folks throughout history who have felt the need to leave their safe confines and journey throughout the world. We all know of Marco Polo, but there are so many more and Connell introduces you to them an what is known about them. His retelling of the Spanish conquest of the Americas is disgustingly riveting.
