Janky Tuk Tuks By Wendy Holborow
Paperback: $12.48
Prints in 3-5 business days
Wendy Holborow has done it once again with a splendid new collection, her most ambitious yet, based on her recent visits to India and Africa. It contains a 'fabulous rabble' of rattling good poems,... More > and a chilling short fiction, 'Ngozi', which has a twist guaranteed to shake us out of our habitual complacency about the endemic refugee crises not only in Africa, but around the world. This is no mere word-painting or poetry tourism, although difference is celebrated and the poems are full of wordplay and relish of language for its own sake - 'janky tuk tuks', which refer to Indian scooter-taxis, and the 'nielloed silver' of the Nile are just two memorable examples - and she ingeniously mixes traditional verse forms, open field and concrete poetry to convey the richness of the encounter between her imagination and different cultures.

Malcolm Teasdale has spent a ridiculous amount of time on planes and trains. Add to that taxis and various types of tuk tuks. After an honest explanation about how he became a travel addict,...

Prints in 3-5 business days
Curry e Tuk Tuk raccoglie le impressioni di un primo viaggio in India, vivide e penetranti proprio perché scaturite dal primo incontro con un popolo a lungo immaginato dalla mente e finalmente... More > visto con gli occhi del ‘principiante’ dopo molti anni di attesa. Un popolo prima ancora che una terra, perché l’interesse dall’autrice viene spesso catturato dalla presenza umana, incontrata nel cortile di un tempio o nella bottega dell’artigiano. Qui l’individuo diventa l’interprete e l’emblema di un mondo altrimenti sfuggente, impossibile da decifrare nei tempi di un breve viaggio. In parte resoconto di viaggio, in parte meditazione sulla condizione umana, il libro segue un semplice ordine cronologico e include indicazioni utili a chi non avesse ancora trovato il coraggio di saltare sul Tuk Tuk per esplorare l’India più autentica.< Less
Mad Dogs, Tuk-Tuk Men & Midday Sun By Tim Spencer
Paperback: $11.88
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is my web-log detailing the 7 months I spent travelling across Asia and The Pacific. What started out as a simple record of my first ever backpacking journey, turned into the story of my life... More > struggling to overcome social anxiety disorder - not to mention a couple of other phobias too! I originally intended this as a memento of my greatest dream - to travel the world. It ended up as a cathartic project, one I hope will provide other anxiety sufferers with as much inspiration and insight as I gained from writing it. I never set out for this to be published (it would need some serious editing at any rate) but I wanted to have a tangible reminder of my journey and how far I'd come in my lifelong battle against anxiety. As with all my writing, I try to inject humour regularly - this is not just about the debilitating mental pain that anxiety can wreak but also an exciting, uplifting and at times hilarious trip, with all the ups and downs that come with life on the road. I hope you'll enjoy it!< Less

Bangkok is the capital, largest urban area and primary city of Thailand. Known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon...
