Summary

Discover Budapest from its most authentic side!
 
Unlike regular travel-guide authors, we’re locals and lovers of Budapest. We want to show YOU Budapest just like we show it to our best friends. Our city is our passion and so is our guidebook. It’s a genuine project of our hearts and so much more than just a quick “overview” of the Hungarian capital.
 
We’ve seen the changes Budapest has undergone from the front row. We’ve seen the tourist waves getting bigger and bigger with each year, “hotspots” rise and fall, the mindset of the locals changing and Budapest constantly opening up, becoming this booming, vibrant and colourful city it is today. Today, Budapest is often mischaracterized as a mere party city with only cheap booze. Most visitors never make it past that image because they get caught up in the tourist bubble and miss out on so many more things the city has to offer.
 
Here we share all of our knowledge about what Budapest truly has to offer – it’s most authentic spots and experiences. This guidebook will help you peel back the multiple layers of Budapest.
 
It’s written for conscious travellers and explorers. For those who are looking for more than just a glimpse at the main tourist attractions.
 
For those who want to not only see, but also feel the city and experience how it lives, plays, works, eats, drinks and functions.
 
It features countless little gems for you to discover while strolling the city streets – be it a hidden courtyard, a secret bar, a colourful garden, an offbeat flea market, or a stunning piece of street art.
 
We’ve also included day trips and walking routes for perfect days full of new discoveries and created a directory and a map for those moments in which you just need quick info. Unlike usual tourist guides, this book will encourage you to experience Budapest as if you’d lived here for years.
 
It's a declaration of unconditional love for a city that is constantly evolving, has a thousand faces and never fails to delight and entertain.

    "Featuring a baker's dozen of original stories, plus one 'poetic interlude,' this new entry in Akashic's globetrotting anthology series explores, as editor Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest, tells us in his introduction, the 'collision of high and low' that makes St. Louis so interesting to crime writers...The stories here are uniformly strong. Regular readers of the Noir series (since its inception in 2004, there have been about 75 installments) know what to expect: tightly written, tightly plotted, mostly character-driven stories of murder and mayhem, death and despair, shadow and shock."--Booklist  'Phillips lends his own talents as well, bringing the total body count to 13 works of fatalist fiction as well as a poetic interlude featuring Poet Laureate Michael Castro. Joining him as accessories are St. Louis Post-Dispatch film critic Calvin Wilson; LaVelle Wilkins-Chinn, a fiction writer whom Phillips himself taught; and writers John Lutz, Paul D. Marks, Colleen J. McElroy, Jason Makansi, S.L. Coney, Laua Benedict, Umar Lee, Chris Barsanti, Linda Smith and Jedidiah Ayres."-- St. Louis Newspaper  "Joining Seattle, Memphis, Phoenix, and other noir outposts, St. Louis gets a turn to show its dark side in Phillips' collection of 13 dark tales and a poetic interlude...[A] spirited, black-hearted collection."--Kirkus Reviews  Akashic Books continues its groundbreaking series of original noir anthologies, launched in 2004 with Brooklyn Noir. Each story is set in a distinct neighborhood or location within the city of the book.  Brand-new stories by: Calvin Wilson, LaVelle Wilkins-Chinn, John Lutz, Paul D. Marks, Colleen J. McElroy, Jason Makansi, S.L. Coney, Michael Castro, Laura Benedict, Jedidiah Ayres, Umar Lee, Chris Barsanti, L.J. Smith, and Scott Phillips.  From the introduction by Scott Phillips:  "The St. Louis region has had a rough time over the past few years. A number of our school districts are unaccredited. A large section of a North St. Louis County landfill is burning uncontrolled--yes, it's on fire--and said fire is only yards away from a World War II–era radioactive waste dump. There's the matter of the region's de facto segregation, a persistent pox on the city and county decades after the explicit, institutional variety became illegal. A number of our suburban municipalities have lately been exposed in the act of strong-arming their poorest citizens, running what amount to debtors' prisons. In recent years one of those cities, Ferguson, has become a national synonym for police misconduct and institutional racism...  Amid all this is a rich, multicultural history of art and literature both high and low, stemming from conflict and passions running hot...This collection strives for some of that same energy that the collision of high and low can produce...All these writers come at their work with different perspectives and styles but all with a connection to and a passion for our troubled city and its surroundings."

    Through the author’s travels in Europe and the United States, Try to Get Lost explores the quest for place that compels and defines us: the things we carry, how politics infuse geography, media’s depictions of an idea of home, the ancient and modern reverberations of the word “hotel,” and the ceaseless discovery generated by encounters with self and others on familiar and foreign ground. Frank posits that in fact time itself may be our ultimate, inhabited place—the “vastest real estate we know,” with a “stunningly short” lease.
