Left Coast Writers®: Matthew Felix - Porcelain Travels (San Francisco Store)

Monday, November 12, 2018 - 6:00pm

Please join Left Coast Writers® for an uproarious and sometimes rather farfetched evening with Matthew Félix as he debuts his latest book, Porcelain Travels.

Matthew Félix is not a luxury traveler. But even traveling on a budget fails to explain why he has so many unforgettable experiences on the toilet, in the tub, or under the shower.From Matthew’s unorthodox bathing practices in Paris and Istanbul to his nightmare while squatting in Morocco to the Dead Sea shower incident that led to an arrest, Porcelain Travels is sometimes hilarious, occasionally shocking, and always entertaining.

Matthew Félix is an author, podcast producer and host, and traveler. Adventure, humor, and spirituality infuse his work, which often draws on his time living in Spain, France, and Turkey, as well as travels in over fifty countries. Matthew’s debut novel, A Voice Beyond Reason, is the story of how a young Spaniard’s awakening to his intuition gets him out of his head, so he can follow his heart. Matthew’s travel-story collection, With Open Arms, recounts his humorous and harrowing experiences on two trips to Morocco. His video podcast, Matthew Félix On Air, features guests discussing writing, travel, culture, and more. Matthew has also produced three podcasts based on his books.

His unorthodox bathing practices in Paris. The Dead Sea shower incident that led to an arrest. The nightmare while he was trapped on a bus without a bathroom in Anatolia, his retelling of which won Gold for Humor in the 2018 Solas Awards. Maybe it's Matthew's no-frills approach to experiencing the world that gets him into situations that are sometimes hilarious, sometimes cringeworthy.
