Persian Pictures: From the Mountains to the Sea

Paperback
by Bell, Gertrude
"Are we the same, I wonder, when all our surroundings, association, acquaintances are changed? I conclude that it is not the person who danced with you at Mansfield St who writes to you today from Persia. Yet there are dregs, English sediment at the bottom of my sherbet, and perhaps they flavour it more than I think. I write to you of Persia: I am not me, that is my only excuse. I am only I am merely pourin...

Scotland

Hardback
by MacKenzie, Garry
With its vibrant cities and breathtaking landscapes, Scotland has captivated writers and visitors for centuries and inspired a diverse range of literature, from the religious poems carved on the rocks of its sacred monuments to the seedy urban novels of Irvine Welsh. For Robert Burns, Scotland's iconic poet, the culture of his native country was a fertile ground for his imagination. Sir Walter Scott drew on...

Paperback
by Massoudi, Cyrus
For Cyrus Massoudi, a young British-born Iranian, the country his parents were forced to flee thirty years ago was a place wholly unknown to him.

Rich portrayals of Sufis and ageing ar...

The Land of the Green Man: A Journey Through the Supernatural Landscapes of the British Isles

Paperback
by Larrington, Carolyne
Beyond its housing estates and identikit high streets there is another Britain. This is the Britain of mist-drenched forests and unpredictable sea-frets: of wraith-like fog banks, druidic mistletoe and peculiar creatures that lurk, half-unseen, in the undergrowth, tantalising and teasing just at the periphery of human vision. How have the remarkably persistent folkloric traditions of the British Isles forme...

Halliburton's second book, The Glorious Adventure describes his journey through the Mediterranean in the shadow of his mythical hero. In Greece, Halliburton charged Mount Olympus 'in order to visit the gods that dwelled there'; he swam the Helles...

Tastes of Byzantium - The Cuisine of a Lengendary Empire

Paperback
by Andrew Dalby

Andrew Dalby's "Tastes of Byzantium" now reveals in astonishing detail, for the first time, what was eaten in the court of the Eastern Roman Empire - and how it was cooked. Fusing the spices of the Romans w...

Greece, The Hidden Centuries

Paperback
by Brewer David
For almost four hundred years, between the fall of Constantinople in 1453 and the Greek War of Independence, the history of Greece is shrouded in mystery: distorted by Greek writers and largely neglected by others.

Perseus in The Wind: A Life of Travel

Paperback
by Stark Freya
Written just after the Second World War, "Perseus in the Wind" (named after the constellation) is perhaps the most personal, and haunting, of all Freya Stark's writings. She muses on the seasons; the effect light has on a landscape at a particular time of day; the smell of the earth after rain; Muslim saints, Indian temples, war and old age. Each chapter is devoted to a particular theme: Happiness (simple p...

Tangier: A Literary Guide for Travellers

Hardback

An edge city, poised at the northernmost tip of Africa, just nine miles across the Strait of Gibraltar from Europe and overlooking both the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, Tangier is more than a destination, it is an escape, and the Interzone, as William Burroughs called it, has attracted spies, outlaws, outcasts and writers for centuries - men and women working out at the edge of literary forms, breaking...

Enver Hoxha: The Iron Fist of Albania

Paperback
by Nishku, Majlinda
Stalinism, that particularly brutal phase of communism, came to an end in most of Eastern Europe with the death of Josef Stalin in 1953 or at least with the Khrushchev reforms that began in the Soviet Union in 1956. However, in one country - Albania - Stalinism survived virtually unscathed until 1990. The regime that the Albanian dictator Enver Hoxha led from the time of the communist takeover in 1944 until...
