Summary

As one of the most travel-friendly cities in Europe, Barcelona’s locals see tourism as both a curse and a blessing, and we’ll take you through how to make the most of its true charms and move to the beat of the authentic Barcelona, without falling prey to tourist traps. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that Catalonia’s regional capital will be like anywhere else in Spain: yes, there are parallels, but Catalan culture is markedly separate, and we’ll show you why this once independent region of the Iberian Peninsula and its fiercely proud people define themselves as different. The city’s compact size makes a walk from its ancient centre to its vibrant beaches an easy one – cool breeze permitting, meaning it’s manageable to see your fair share of the area in both a long weekend city break and a longer Catalan adventure. The city’s waterfront is constantly developing, not only as a recreational area for party crowds and shoppers, but a Mediterranean port and the economical centre of Spain. Barcelona is cloaked in a proud history, dating back to the Roman period, and you can see the ruinous charm of the city through its gleaming restorations, which are thanks to the 1992 Summer Olympics, giving the city a new lease of life: as a city that embraces all things new, a city that stays up late into the night, a city with an impossibly poetic and artistic quality and a city with a discerning cuisine that’s turned it into a top destination for foodies, the mind-boggling question is; how wasn’t it so popular beforehand?

    Now a major SBS television series!
    
    Meet the Law family – eccentric, endearing and hard to resist. Your guide: Benjamin, the third of five children and a born humorist. Join him as he tries to answer some puzzling questions: Why won’t his Chinese dad wear made-in-China underpants? Why was most of his extended family deported in the 1980s? Will his childhood dreams of Home and Away stardom come to nothing? What are his chances of finding love? 
    
    Hilarious and moving, The Family Law is a linked series of tales from a beloved Australian writer.

    ‘Enjoyable, easy reading ... Law is a considerable talent with a long future ahead of him.’ —Literary Minded
    
    ‘The eccentric, clever and beautifully resonant The Family Law. It’s sharply written, brilliantly observed and infused with an authenticity that makes it compelling.’ —Saturday Age

    Prince Philip: I Know I am Rude...

    At the age of twenty-one, Prince Philip wrote to a relative: 'I know you will never think much of me. I am rude and unmannerly.' Prince Philip probably never managed to change the opinion of his relative... This affectionate compendium brings together both the best and a host of less well-known stories about the prince, giving an insight into the royal world where he 'traipses around' as a 'fella who belongs to Mrs Queen', rather than being 'professionally qualified in something'. From Prince Philip's blunt speech making, to his fearless mocking of officials and captains of industry, to his fond teasing of Her Majesty herself, here is a truly regal celebration of the unusual daily life in royal circles.

Each of the eight walks conjures up forgotten scenes of London life – stage-coaches racing through the Borough; herds of cattle driven through suburban streets to reach Smithfield market; the uproar of a hanging outside Newgate Gaol – together with directions to the most atmospheric and intriguing parts of the Victorian metropolis which have survived into the twenty-first century.
