Summary

The author of Sea and Sardinia and Mornings in Mexico shares essays on his travels to Germany, Austria, and Italy. D. H. Lawrence first left England in 1912 and almost immediately began recording his reaction to foreign cultures. Many of those writings became a series of travel articles intended to be published in newspapers; two of them are published here for the first time, deemed too anti-German at the time. Other essays were modified and added to even more observations for Lawrence’s first travel book, Twilight in Italy, published in 1916. Shaped by the atmosphere of the War, and its rampant anxieties, these essays are imbued with Lawrence’s intellectual daring and confidence, which raise them above a conventional travel book.

    Pilgrims explores the meaning of pilgrimage as part of the Church’s tradition and also in the lives of individual Christians. Each chapter focuses on a particular place of pilgrimage within Britain and Ireland, such as Canterbury, Lindisfarne and Kildare, offering some historical background and exploring why this location has become such a powerful magnet for pilgrims over the ages.
    
     
    Stephen Platten relates pilgrims and pilgrimages to a wide range of themes from Christian theology, spirituality and literature. The book can be used by individuals and groups, whether they are visiting some of the places referred to in the book or are seeking to enrich their spiritual lives as “armchair pilgrims”.

    Nigel Barley returns to Cameroon on hearing that the elaborate and fearsome Dowayo circumcision ceremony, performed at six or seven year intervals, is about to take place. Yet, like much else in this hilarious book by the author of The Innocent Anthropologist, the circumcision ceremony proves frustratingly elusive, partly because of an extraordinary plague of black, hairy caterpillars.
    In the meantime, witchcraft fills the Cameroonian air, a man is lied to by his own foot and an earnest German traveller shows explicit birth-control propaganda to the respectable tribespeople. Beneath the joy and shared laughter in this comic masterpiece lies skilful and wise reflection on the problems facing people of different cultures as they try to understand one another.

    “Explore[s] the ingenious outsider cooks, the obsessive impulses, and the raging gustatory dishes behind America’s newest food capitol.” —Mike Thelin, commentator for Unique Eats and co-founder of Feast Portland 
     
    The Mighty Gastropolis goes deep behind the scenes to explore the kitchens, personal lives, and mindsets of Portland’s celebrated cooks to chronicle, with humor and panache, a people’s army of maverick chefs, artisans, obsessives, farmers, food carters, and plucky pioneers who have created a risk-taking, no rules food town unlike any other: one that is exporting its culinary ethos, innovations, and sensibilities to America’s gastronomic power zones in New York, LA, Chicago, and countless other cities that are coming under its spell: a spell and culinary imagination that, according to Bon Appétit Restaurant and Drinks Editor, Andrew Knowlton, emanates from “a city thriving with creativity, passion, and an anything-goes attitude for all things edible.”  
     
    In this book, you will learn, ingredient by ingredient, experiment by experiment, dish by dish, how Portland’s culinary cognoscenti have re-imagined and reconfigured restaurant culture for modern times and established a new paradigm for how to succeed in the fiercely competitive, no-chops-barred worlds of both hi- and lo-fi dining. The result, as Thomas Lauderdale, founder of Pink Martini, explains, “is a hilarious, heart-warming, punk-rock portrait of a daringly creative Mecca showing the rest of America a better way to eat—and live.”  
     
    This is a landmark contribution to the literature of food. And, perhaps best of all, the book’s recipes are roadmaps to rarified states of gastro-nirvana.

    The Poetry of Strangers - What I...

    It might surprise you who’s a fan of poetry — when it meets them where they are. 
    Before he became an award-winning writer and poet, Brian Sonia-Wallace set up a typewriter on the street with a sign that said “Poetry Store” and discovered something surprising: all over America, people want poems. An amateur busker at first, Brian asked countless strangers, “What do you need a poem about?” To his surprise, passersby opened up to share their deepest yearnings, loves, and heartbreaks. Hundreds of them. Then thousands. Around the nation, Brian’s poetry crusade drew countless converts from all walks of life. 
    In The Poetry of Strangers, Brian tells the story of his cross-country journey in a series of heartfelt and insightful essays. From Minnesota to Tennessee, California to North Dakota, Brian discovered that people aren’t so afraid of poetry when it’s telling their stories. In “dying” towns flourish vibrant artistic spirits and fascinating American characters who often pass under the radar, from the Mall of America’s mall walkers to retirees on Amtrak to self-proclaimed witches in Salem. 
    In a time of unprecedented loneliness and isolation, Brian’s journey shows how art can be a vital bridge to community in surprising places. Conventional wisdom says Americans don’t want to talk to each other, but according to this poet-for-hire, everyone is just dying to be heard. 
    Thought-provoking, moving, and eye-opening, The Poetry of Strangers is an unforgettable portrait of America told through the hidden longings of one person at a time, by one of our most important voices today. The fault lines and conflicts which divide us fall away when we remember to look, in every stranger, for poetry.
