Summary

Caustic, cranky, and inadvertently hilarious, the bestselling Victorian author Mrs. Favell Lee Mortimer rarely left the house-but that didn't stop her from writing several successful travel books. With volumes on Europe, Asia, and Africa and America, Mrs. Mortimer had something nasty to say about your ancestors, no matter where they had the misfortune of living. Todd Pruzan has assembled three of Mrs. Mortimer's very forgotten classics into one volume, The Clumsiest People in Europe, a wild tour through the comically and horrifyingly misinformed prejudices of a unique Victorian eccentric.

    In 2016, a record-breaking 7.86 million Americans visited Mexico, which is a lot more than we think go to Canada. So how many end up in jail?  Mexico has the largest American prisoner population outside the United States, with hundreds currently serving time. Whether you have plans to visit Mexico's pristine beaches, ancient Mayan ruins, sample authentic mole, or (like author Prisionero Anonimo) become a drug kingpin, it's always better to be prepared, because in Mexico, jail isn't just a punishment, it's a lifestyle. With nearly four years experience, Prisionero Anonimo provides expert tips for negotiating your extortion deal, navigating language barriers, making nice with the mafia boss, throwing your first party, appreciating the art of the baby tattoo, and of course, making candied apples.
