Educating Alice: Adventures of a Curious Woman

Down the back alleys Alice Steinbach goes, slipping through side doors and riding on employees-only elevators; dropping huge, slippery salmon on the floor of the Ritz Escoffier Ecole de Gastronomie Francaise and charming retired geishas into showing her their prized kimonos, wrapped in rice paper and stowed in boxes in the attic.

Alice Steinbach has more fun than anybody, whether chasing sheep in Scotland, or taking cooking lessons at the Ritz in Paris, or swinging to a salsa beat in a down-at-the-heel cafe in Havanna, or taking a writing course in Prague, or studying landscape architecture in Provence, etc. What is more, no matter what she does or who she sees or how hilarious the encounter, she is a lady to her toes.

Did you have any reservations about quitting your steady job at the Baltimore Sun and taking off on your trip? Yes, I did. Quite a few. But as scary as the idea of quitting was to me, I was more frightened by the idea of not doing it.

Educating Alice: Adventures Of A Curious Woman

The timing was right — my sons were grown — so I took the chance. How did you choose the destinations for your trip and the lessons you took in each country? Although from the very beginning, the premise of my book was simple — to study things I found interesting in places that interested me — it was surprisingly difficult to narrow down my choices. Sometimes in the middle of the night I could hear the ringing of my fax machine, promising answers from some elusive group in Cuba or Prague or Kyoto.

After months of this, I made my final choices. Some of the lessons were taught in organized classes, others were learning experiences where the approach was more about teaching learnable rules in an unstructured setting. Do you have a favorite of all the places you visited? Not really.

I want to be Alice Steinbach. I want to travel around the world. I want to stop here and there and take classes in things that interest me.

Educating Alice: Adventures of a Curious Woman

A footloose city slicker who couldn't tell a bull from a cow was hardly the ideal candidate to answer an ad for a governess on a Mackay cattle station. But Alice Greenup was game for anything, until she was bowled over by a handsome young jackeroo with a devastating smile. Alice gave up her city life to embrace the bush and all that came with it: horses, cattle, the obsession with rain, and the correct way to wear a hat. Determined to make their own future, they gambled their dreams on a vast property called 'Jumma'.

It was a huge risk but they were on their way. But one morning they almost lost it all. And what followed would test their love to the limit. Edition: MP3 edition Unabridged. ISBN: Characteristics: 1 audio disc MP3 CD 10 hr. From the critics.
