I hate self-promotion, but it's that time of year when people are looking for gift ideas and I thought: Perhaps I can sell a couple copies. So yesterday morning I went on Facebook and then Twitter and wrote: "An immodest proposal: End the woes of '17 with The Joys of Travel." And below this I posted a large photograph of my book cover, with the bright red-and-yellow train gliding along its tracks. About an hour later Hania called to tell me about the Amtrak crash.
