Go: A memoir of wanderlust and anxiety

GO: A memoir of wanderlust and anxiety

Sara Moss knew she had to go. Taking photos of cranky cruise ship passengers was not the adventure she planned. But adventure — real adventure — dissolves plans and delivers colourful bruises. During more than a decade of exploration, through close to 40 countries, Sara discovers flashpoints of intense loneliness and unrivalled joy.

GO is Sara’s great escape from the Aussie bush to an induction to journalism in the nation’s capital; from hard labour at sea, to writing travel articles for trade and glossy pages, while looking for what’s beyond them. Sara walks naked through a San Francisco bath house, learns how to cook buffalo’s testicles, and scrambles to find a reliable map for a healthy marriage.

GO is about the monkey-grip of internal and external shifts. About the courage needed to take faltering leaps into the unknown. Whether it is a new country, a new love or a new part of yourself. Take a breath, a deep one, and go.

Amanda — New Zealand

Mikayla — Australia

“Sara Moss has lived and experienced enough to fill at least four regular person’s lifetimes. Ultimately, this beautifully-written memoir reminds us the story is never over unless we say it is.”

Eleanor — UK

“Oh wow, what a book! So beautifully written, with the right momentum and such truth.”

Megan — Australia


“Some travel books are good because they give helpful information about the places the author has been. Some are good because they share spellbinding stories of the author’s experiences. Some are good because they capture how the author felt while traveling and invite the reader to share those feelings. GO is a rarity among travel books in that it does all three, and does them really, really well. Don’t miss it.”
