Three Women in Mexico By Rowan Dent

Ships in 3-5 business days
In writing Three Women in Mexico, I sought to immerse the reader in a landscape, to conjure up a vivid sensation of a single place or moment. In doing this, I drew upon the journals and notebooks I... More > kept while living and travelling in Mexico in 2009, recalling the sights and sounds of those wonderful journeys. I also revisited photographs I had taken of my visits, feeling, like Proust, that the photographs contained ‘a past impression, a fragment of life in unsullied preservation.’ In the re-reading of the journals, I discovered a curious truth, that my memories were both real and imagined, just as my stories are. As Margaret Atwood, a strong influence on my work, has claimed, ‘There has to be some blood in the cookie for the Gingerbread Person to come alive.’ However, the stories are not entirely autobiographical; they merely draw on personal experience for inspiration. Other inspiration has come from many different fields; the exquisite stories of Katherine Mansfield for their simplicity...< Less

Ida Laura Pfeiffer (1797-Vienna), was an Austrian traveler and travel book author. She was one of the first female explorers, whose popular books were translated into seven languages. She was a... More > member of geographical societies of both Berlin and Paris, but not of Royal Geographical Society in London due to her sex. She was only in her tenth year, however, when he died; and she then passed naturally enough under the maternal control. Between her own inclinations and her mother's ideas of maidenly culture a great contest immediately arose. Her mother could not understand why her daughter should prefer the violin to the piano, and the masculine trousers to the feminine petticoat. In fact, she did not understand Ida, and it may be assumed that Ida did not understand her. Cannot imagine the bravery and endurance of this woman. No money, no internet, and well past middle age when she even began her travels. Ida Pfeiffer was pretty amazing.< Less

TRAVELS WITH MYSELF is a collection of selected writings by Tahir Shah, acclaimed Anglo-Afghan author and champion of the intrepid. Written over twenty years, the many pieces form an eclectic... More > treasury of stories from Latin America, Asia, Africa, and beyond. Some consider the lives of women in society, both in East and West. The women-only police stations of Brazil, for instance, as well as the female inmates waiting to die on America’s Death Row, or the young widows who clear landmines for a living in northern Cambodia. More still look at Morocco, where Shah and his family reside in a mansion set squarely in the middle of a sprawling Casablanca shantytown. And, yet more reflect on the oddities and contradictions of the modern world. Such as why, in India each summer, hundreds of thousands line up to swallow live fish; or how the Model T Ford sounded the death knell of lavish Edwardian ostrich-feather hats.< Less
