    The great author of Vanity Fair and The Luck Of Barry Lyndon was born in India in 1811.  At age 5 his father died and his mother sent him back to England.  His education was of the best but he himself seemed unable to apply his talents to a rigorous work ethic.  However, once he harnessed his talents the works flowed in novels, articles, short stories, sketches and lectures.  Sadly, his personal life was rather more difficult.  After a few years of marriage his wife began to suffer from depression and over the years became detached from reality.  Thackeray himself suffered from ill health later in his life and the one pursuit that kept him moving forward was that of writing.  In his life time, he was placed second only to Dickens.  High praise indeed.

    Observing the barges from the Pont des Arts in Paris sparks in Richard Goodwin a strong desire to join their nomadic lifestyle. And so he buys Leontyne – or Leo to her friends ¬– an ancient, rusty barge that has been plying the Thames for over sixty years. After patching her up and roping in some wise men of the rivers, Richard plans an epic journey; one that will take him across the stormy channel, along beautiful rivers and canals, through river cities and tiny villages, from London, all the way to Vienna. 
     
    First published in 1989, Leontyne: By barge from London to Vienna is full of colourful characters met along the way, the amusing trials and tribulations of a cantankerous boat and the rich culture of the countries Goodwin passes through.

    This collection of wide-ranging essays from the New York Times–bestselling travel writer is “a steamer trunk full of delights” (Chicago Sun-Times). This collection of decidedly opinionated articles, essays, and ruminations, by the author of My Other Life and Kowloon Tong, transports the reader not only to exotic, unexpected places in the world but also into the interior life of the writer himself. Whether it is his time serving in the Peace Corps, his memorable interview with tennis star John McEnroe, bearing witness to the uprising in Uganda, or the debt he owes to his mentor, V. S. Naipaul, Theroux approaches each subject with characteristic intelligence, insight, and an eye for life’s great ironies.   Over the course of two decades, Paul Theroux gathers people, places, and ideas in precise, evocative writing that “serves as both the camera and the eye, and both the details and the illusions are developed with brilliance” (Time).   “What makes Mr. Theroux most persuasive as a writer is simply his willingness to put himself on the line. . . . Gusty, personal, and astonishing.” —The New York Times   “These pieces prove anew Theroux’s unflagging, infectious enthusiams [sic] for exploring.” —Kirkus Reviews

    Notes from Africa - A Musical...

    Notes from Africa traces the rise of popular music on the continent – beginning in the 1980s when the term ‘world music’ was coined as a marketing label and African musicians, notably Youssou N’Dour and his contemporaries, began to appear on the international stage. 
    This book explains the musical styles that developed from the 1960s, when many African countries gained their independence. It covers developments in music and society in Senegal, in West Africa and around the continent during the post-independence years and right up to the present day. Jenny Cathcart, drawing on her personal experience in Senegal and her work alongside Youssou N’Dour, offers stories and portraits of daily life in Africa. The results are fresh insights into contemporary culture, religion and politics – as well as future collaborations and developments not only on the continent but in the African diaspora too.
