In his solitary travels, Tom Lutz seeks out places where he doesn’t know anyone, or speak the language. His latest book, “Drinking Mare’s Milk on the Roof of the World,” depicts encounters with people across the globe, from a casino in Tanzania to disputed parts of Ukraine. Along the way, Lutz tries to understand his compulsion to travel down the unfamiliar path. Lutz, also the founder and editor-in-chief of the Los Angeles Review of Books, joins us in studio.
