I’m Matt Gross, a food and travel writer who works for publications such as Saveur, Afar, WorldHum.com, and the New York Times, where I wrote the Frugal Traveler column from 2006 to 2010 and where I’ve recently begun a new regular series, “Getting Lost.” I also write “The Voyager,” a column for Currency, a personal-finance website run by American Express. This blog, “The Minor Glories,” is supposed to be a kind of supplement to all of that, a way to talk about the zillions of interesting things that, for one reason or another, don’t make it into my longer articles.
(The blog’s name comes from an article I wrote for WorldHum, “The Minor Glories of Constant Motion.”)
And if, for some reason, you want to read my thoughts on parenting in New York City, check out Dadwagon.com.
Also: I have a book proposal finished and circulating among publishers. If you’re interested, or if you want to discuss any other book-related issues, please contact my agent, Nathaniel Jacks at Inkwell Management. And if you’d like to contact me directly, please e-mail worldmatt at worldmatt dot org.
