It is assumed that an odyssey is characterized by an arduous voyage with perils at every turn, when so often the more challenging journey takes place internally. While many such adventures involve trekking over land and sea, it is by no means a requirement, and the outward experience often serves to mirror the emotional and psychological struggle within. Whether through fiction, travelogue, memoir or poetry, these writers utilize storytelling as a tool to navigate life’s greatest joys and sorrows, thereby letting their readers know, you are not alone.
