The Travelers

Regina Porter

Published by: Jonathan Cape

Regina Porter is an award-winning playwright and a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she was an Iowa Arts Fellow. She was born in Savannah, Georgia and lives in Brooklyn. The Travelers is her first novel.

An expansive novel about a changing America feels intimate in Porter's hands, as she uses the lives of an interconnected group of people to show the collision of race, gender and class."
