Travelers, Laura Bernstein­-Machlay’s debut collection of essays, maps the author’s journey as she makes sense of her recovering city, the generations that preceded her, and her own definition of wife, mother, and home. Deftly observed and thoughtfully crafted, Bernstein­-Machlay’s lyrical prose brings to life Detroit’s survivor spirit and the indefatigable nature of family. Travelers examines the intersection of the connections we form and those we inherit and how, with distance and trust and a little luck, we might find more than just our way home.
