    2020 Buenos Aires Restaurants -...

    There are many people who are enthusiastic about food—the cooking of it, the preparation of it, the serving of it, and let’s not forget the eating of it.
    But Andrew Delaplaine is the ultimate Food Enthusiast. 
    This is another of his books with spot-on reviews of the most exciting restaurants in town. Some will merit only a line or two, just to bring them to your attention. Others deserve a half page or more. 
    “Exciting” does not necessarily mean expensive. The area’s top spots get the recognition they so richly deserve (and that they so loudly demand), but there are plenty of “sensible alternatives” for those looking for good food handsomely prepared by cooks and chefs who really care what they “plate up” in the kitchen.
    For those with a touch of Guy Fieri, Delaplaine ferrets out the best food for those on a budget. That dingy looking dive bar around the corner may serve up one of the juiciest burgers in town, perfect to wash down with a locally brewed craft beer.
    Whatever your predilection or taste, cuisine of choice or your budget, you may rely on Andrew Delaplaine not to disappoint. 
    Delaplaine dines anonymously at the Publisher’s expense. No restaurant listed in this series has paid a penny or given so much as a free meal to be included. 
    Bon Appétit!

    The Anatomy of a Moment -...

    In February 1981, Spain was still emerging from Franco's shadow, holding a democratic vote for the new prime minister. On the day of the vote in Parliament, while the session was being filmed by TV cameras, a band of right-wing soldiers burst in with automatic weapons, ordering everyone to get down. Only three men defied the order. For thirty-five minutes, as the cameras rolled, they stayed in their seats. 
    Critically adored novelist Javier Cercas originally set out to write a novel about this pivotal moment, but determined it had already gained an air of myth, or, through the annual broadcast of video clips, had at least acquired the fictional taint of reality television. Cercas turned to nonfiction, and his vivid descriptions of the archival footage frame a narrative that traverses the line between history and art, creating a daring new account of this watershed moment in modern Spanish history. 
    The Anatomy of a Moment caused a sensation upon its publication in Spain, selling hundreds of thousands of copies. The story will be new to many American readers, but the book stands resolutely on its own as a compelling literary inquest of national myth, personal memory, political spectacle, and reality itself.

    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.
    Throughout its 99 chapters, this book will reveal more than 200 places, sights and activities in Budapest to you that will each teach you something new about the city or simply entertain.
    Scenic Walking Routes – Near and far from the city centre
    Numerous Secret Cafés, Bars, Restaurants and (Ruin-) Pubs for your day- and nightlife – as no day is complete without good food and drinks!
    Historically Relevant Places – Discover Budapest’s Ottoman, Jewish, Monarchal or Communist past
    The most Beautiful Streets, Squares, Parks and Areas – Since it’s often the best ones that get overlooked
    Unique Panoramas – See the city from a different viewpoint!
    Hidden Neighbourhoods – Ever heard of Budapest’s “Forbidden City”?
    Day Trips – within the borders of Budapest
    Stunning Pieces of Architecture – As there is so much more of them than the Parliament and the Buda Castle
    Secret Inner Courtyards – See the life behind the facades of the city
    Little Shops and Flea Markets – Get hold of affordable designer stuff, old books, vintage clothes and more!
    Scenic Public Transportation Rides – Metros, tramways and even a boat!
    Plenty of Ideas for Rainy and Cold Days – As there are no “bad days” in Budapest!
    And so much more!
    Additionally, we have included a directory and an online map in order to help you find what you need right now, according to your situation, mood or even the weather.
