Author Kevin Revolinski talks about his newest book, ‘Stealing Away’

Local 5 Live

(WFRV) – It’s his 16th book and a bit of a departure from the travel guide genre he’s known for – Author Kevin Revolinski stopped by Local 5 Live with a look at his latest book, ‘Stealing Away: A Collection of Twelve Short Stories’.


So you’re already familiar with Wisconsin’s Best Beer Guide, Best Tent Camping Wisconsin, Paddling Wisconsin, and Backroads & Byways of Wisconsin, and perhaps the travel memoir The Yogurt Man Cometh: Tales of an American Teacher in Turkey. My 16th book came out this year and it is a turn to what I’d always wanted to be writing: fiction. Stealing Away is a collection of twelve short stories, some previously published in literary journals, some new, and it is available in bookstores and online.

Half the stories are set in fictional small-town locations here in Wisconsin and northern Illinois, while the settings for the other half of them are drawn from my years of traveling: Syria, Turkey, Peru, Mexico, and the Caribbean.

Kevin will be signing books locally over the next few days, here’s where you can get your signed:

June 11: The Book Store, Appleton
June 12: Lion’s Mouth Bookstore, Green Bay – that same afternoon he will be at Novel Bay Booksellers in Sturgeon Bay.
