Havana: A Subtropical Delirium

Havana: A Subtropical Delirium

Mark Kurlansky

$36.00
Double Reward Points
More info
A city of tropical heat, sweat, ramshackle beauty, and its very own cadence - a city that always surprises - Havana is brought to pulsing life by New York Times bestselling author Mark Kurlansky.

Award-winning author Mark Kurlansky presents an insider's view of Havana: the elegant, tattered city he has come to know over more than thirty years. Part cultural history, part travelogue, with recipes, historic engravings, photographs, and Kurlansky's own pen-and-ink drawings throughout, Havana celebrates the city's singular music, literature, baseball, and food; its five centuries of outstanding, neglected architecture; and its extraordinary blend of cultures.

Like all great cities, Havana has a rich history that informs the vibrant place it is today - from the native Taino to Columbus's landing, from Cuba's status as a U.S. protectorate to Batista's dictatorship and Castro's revolution, from Soviet presence to the welcoming of capitalist tourism. Havana is a place of extremes: a beautifully restored colonial city whose cobblestone streets pass through areas that have not been painted or repaired since long before the revolution.

Kurlansky shows Havana through the eyes of Cuban writers, such as Alejo Carpentier and José Martí, and foreigners, including Graham Greene and Hemingway. He introduces us to Cuban baseball and its highly opinionated fans; the city's music scene, alive with the rhythm of Son; its culinary legacy. Through Mark Kurlansky's multilayered and electrifying portrait, the long-elusive city of Havana comes stirringly to life.

Return to Moscow

Return to Moscow

Tony Kevin

$29.99
Double Reward Points
More info
Forty-eight years ago, a young and apprehensive Tony Kevin set off with his family on his first diplomatic posting, to Moscow at the height of the Cold War. In the Russian winter of 2016 he returns alone, a private citizen aged 73. What will he find? How has Russia changed since those grim Soviet days?

Tony Kevin had a successful and challenging diplomatic career, ending with ambassadorships to Poland (1991-94) and Cambodia (1994-97). He now applies his attention to Vladimir Putin's Russia, a government and nation routinely demonised and disdained in Western capitals.

Why does President Putin arouse such a high level of Western antagonism? Is the West throwing away the lessons of recent history in recklessly drifting into a perilous and unnecessary new Cold War confrontation against Russia?

Tony Kevin invites readers to see this great nation anew: to explore with him the complex roots of Russian national identity and values, drawing on its traumatic recent seventy-year Soviet Communist past and its momentous thousand-year history as a great Orthodox Christian nation that has both loved and feared 'the West', and which the West has loved and feared back in equal measure.

Traveling with Ghosts: A Memoir of Love and Loss

Traveling with Ghosts: A Memoir of Love and Loss

Shannon Leone Fowler

$32.99
In the summer of 2002, Shannon Leone Fowler was backpacking with her Australian fiance Sean in Thailand. The couple were planning to return home to Melbourne after their excursion to the island of Koh Pha Ngan but their plans were devastated when a box jellyfish - the most venomous animal in the world - wrapped itself around Sean's legs, stinging and killing him in minutes. Rejecting the Thai authorities' attempt to label Sean's death as 'drunk drowning', Shannon accompanied his body home to his stunned family - a family to which she suddenly no longer belonged. Shattered, untethered and alone, Shannon set out on a journey to make sense of her loss. From contemplating the silence of Auschwitz to learning the rules for sitting shiva amid daily bombings in Israel, to finding humour and creativity in Sarajevo, a city still scarred by the recent war, Shannon charts a path through sorrow towards recovery. Traveling with Ghosts is a beautiful memorial to love and an intensely personal account of learning to live with grief. It is the story of a brave journey towards survival.

The People Elsewhere

The People Elsewhere

Lucas Stewart

$29.99
Over Red Ruby cigarettes, Sayar gave me a copy of an A to Z biography of Burmese-language writers he had edited, and my thoughts drifted to writers elsewhere ...' In a five year journey all across Myanmar, Lucas Stewart travels from Yangon in the south to the northern limits of Kachin State in search of the literary luminaries of the country's recent past. He bonds with censored and jailed writers, poets, publishers and booksellers, recording their stories of heritage and resilience. In his conversations with students at an Aung San Suu Kyi rally or sharing stories with a Kayah farmer in his village house, the long-suppressed literatures and languages of minorities such as the Chin, Kachin, Shan and others shine through. The People Elsewhere is a vivid tableau of time and place, and an ode to the ethnic richness of Myanmar.

Juliet's Answer

Juliet's Answer

Glenn Dixon

$29.99
In fair Verona, where we lay our scene ...

When Glenn Dixon is spurned by love, he packs his bags for Verona, the setting for Shakespeare’s most famous love story, Romeo and Juliet. Determined to heal his heartbreak by helping others, he becomes the lone male in a dedicated team of secretaries who answer letters from thousands of lovelorn people around the world on behalf of ‘Juliet’.

Although he has firsthand experience of heartbreak and has taught Shakespeare for decades, at first Glenn struggles with how he can advise others yearning to understand the mysteries of the heart. But as he learns from his fellow letter writers about life and love, he comes to realise he has a lot of learning to do about himself, about heartbreak – and about Shakespeare’s two fictional lovers. He also learns that the letters have the power to transform lives, his own included.

An irresistible modern-day love story set against the backdrop of one of the most enduring love stories of all time, Juliet’s Answer will warm your heart long after the last page.

Loitering with Intent: Diary of A Happy Traveller

Loitering with Intent: Diary of A Happy Traveller

Ritu Menon

$24.99
Where we go is usually decided spontaneously; one of us might say, 'Let's do a wine trip in France;' or 'We should go to Angkor before it's overrun by tourists' ...The main thing is - we all love travelling, we all love food, and all of us enjoy each other's company. Ritu Menon, publisher by profession and traveller by vocation, says she never travels alone when she travels for pleasure. So it is in the company of friends and family that she takes us on journeys across the world: wine-tasting in France; discovering the serenity of the Buddha in Bagan in Myanmar; roaming the leafy green streets of Zamalek in Egypt; tasting cream teas and cakes in Betty's Tearoom in York, and many other delightful experiences. Along the way she manages to catch a glimpse of the people and politics that animate each of her travels: Egypt after the January 2011 overthrow of Hosni Mubarak; Syria before the IS; the continuing heartbreak of Palestine; Turkey in transition; and Myanmar on the cusp of change. Accompanied by sketches that bring alive the magic of those moments, this is a book that armchair travellers will savour, and one that will enthuse the more energetic to pack their bags and live the experience themselves.

Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe

Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe

Kapka Kassabova

$34.99
When Kapka Kassabova was a child, the borderzone between Bulgaria, Turkey and Greece was rumoured to be an easier crossing point into the West than the Berlin Wall so it swarmed with soldiers, spies and fugitives. On holidays close to the border on the Black Sea coast, she remembers playing on the beach, only miles from where an electrified fence bristled, its barbs pointing inwards toward the enemy: the holiday-makers, the potential escapees. 

Today, this densely forested landscape is no longer heavily militarised, but it is scarred by its past. In Border, Kapka Kassabova sets out on a journey to meet the people of this triple border - Bulgarians, Turks, Greeks, and the latest wave of refugees fleeing conflict further afield.  She discovers a region that has been shaped by the successive forces of history: by its own past migration crises, by communism, by two World wars, by the Ottoman Empire, and - older still - by the ancient legacy of myths and legends. 

As Kapka Kassabova explores this enigmatic region in the company of border guards and treasure hunters, entrepreneurs and botanists, psychic healers and ritual fire-walkers, refugees and smugglers, she traces the physical and psychological borders that criss-cross its villages and mountains, and goes in search of the stories that will unlock its secrets. 

Border is a sharply observed portrait of a little-known corner of Europe, and a fascinating meditation on the borderlines that exist between countries, between cultures, between people, and within each of us.

Into the Heart of the World: 25 Years of Exploration

Into the Heart of the World: 25 Years of Exploration

Antonio De Vivo ,  Francesco Sauro

$90.00
A team of speleologists travel to the center of the world: this volume gathers the main expeditions of La Venta speleologist association over the course of twenty-five years through stunning images and travel logs.

From its first exploration of the Rio La Venta, Chiapas, in Mexico, which gave the association its name, to the Auyan Tepui, in Venezuela, from the glaciers of the Antarctic and Patagonia to the Puerto Princesa Underground River, Palawan, in the Philippines, the Cuatro Cienegas, Coahuila, in Mexico, and the Cueva de Los Cristales, Naica, Chihuahua, in Mexico.

On the threshold of the third millennium talking about "geographical exploration" can sound rather inappropriate, especially in a world where human expansion and satellite communication have put the whole of nature under control. This is not the case. There is a lot yet to discover in the most remote parts of the earth's surface, and even more below it, where Night Lands, almost undiscovered, still stretch out. Dissemination of the results from such research is the essential goal of each exploration.

La Venta focuses its attention mainly on the quality of documentation, from general communication to scientific publication. This strategy has made it possible to write articles in major world journals and to appear several times on TV, both in Italy and abroad. One of the main goals of the research projects carried out by the La Venta team is to strengthen the conservation of the areas where we work and to raise awareness of the people who live and work there.

A House in Flanders

A House in Flanders

Michael Jenkins

$19.99

The warmth of their life awakes Michael to the complicated world of relationships as he falls in love for the first time. Michael Jenkin s vivid memoir of a summer that changed his life has become a much-loved classic, with its evocative portraits of his aunts, the raw memories of two world wars that still scar the Flanders plain and Michael s unraveling of the secret at the heart of this family.
