Phantom Islands

Hardback
by Liesemer, Dirk
From the famed Atlantis to the little-known Rupes Nigra, fantastical islands have long held our fascination. Isolated from ordinary life, they lurk, full of mystery, in unexplored corners of the globe and in far-off seas. At times, however, our fascination has bled into reality, as our willingness to see what isn't really there has shown fictional islands appear on maps and charts, with travelogues telling ...

Kafka's Prague

Paperback
by Wagenbach, Klaus
Nearly 100 years after Franz Kafka's death, his works continue to intrigue and haunt us. Even for those who are only fleetingly acquainted with his unfinished novels, or his stories, diaries, and letters, `Kafkaesque' has become a byword for the menacing, unfathomable absurdity of modern existence and bureaucracy. Yet for all the universal significance of his fiction, Kafka's writing remains inextricably bo...

Dickens's London

Paperback
by Clark, Peter
Few novelists have written so intimately about a city in the way that Charles Dickens wrote about London. A near-photographic memory made his contact with the city indelible from a very young age and it remained his constant focus. Virginia Woolf maintained that, 'we remodel our psychological geography when we read Dickens,' as he produces 'characters who exist not in detail, not accurately or exactly, but ...

A History of the Silk Road

Paperback
by Clements, Jonathan
The Silk Road is a route from the edges of the European world to the central plains of China. For thousands of years, its history has been a traveller's history, of brief encounters in desert towns, snowbound passes and nameless forts. It was the conduit that first brought Buddhism, Christianity and Islam into China, and the site of much of the 'Great Game' between Victorian empires.

Budapest: City of Music
