New York City Author Adam Ross Rapoport Releases Memoir
New York, NY
In 2010, Adam Ross Rapoport had a life-changing epiphany. He wanted to travel the world by any means necessary and experience the freedoms of homeless travel. Rapoport's curiosity inspired an adventure which consisted of dropping out of graduate school, thus leaving behind his upper-middle class lifestyle, hitch-hiking over five thousand miles throughout the United States, sailing several Bahama islands with a seemingly cursed captain, and living in Central America working under the table and more.
Rapoport's Memoir is described by Kirkus Media LLC as an "Honest, colorful account of free-wheeling adventures and self-exploration...Rapoport still creates suspense for the next installment, given his intriguing hints about upcoming spiritual experiences and a possible reconciliation with the girlfriend he left behind in Boston."
The book takes the reader on a two-year journey as Rapoport puts on a backpack with only seven hundred dollars, in an attempt to travel the globe and see "where the wind would take him." The young Rapoport completely divorced what was expected of him, for what he desired, completely severing his societal expectations of his family. This book is not another Into the Wild, nor is it a mere travel diary; rather, it is an intimate look into the character of our country and our world.
"I wanted to be a vagabond - to travel the world on faith and whim, not caring for money, but for a variety of experiences, freedom, and adventure...and I did it," says Adam Ross Rapoport, author of Memory of a Vagabond. "It was at times dangerous, yet very romantic...not specifically romantic concerning my relations with women (though the book certainly contains that)...but romantic in the sense that my life became ever changing, unpredictable, extraordinary, and for lack of a better description; f-ing awesome."
