His curiosity overcoming his fears, his second trip would prove as unforgettable as the first. ´´My reflexes belatedly kicking in, I couldn´t help but flinch. The children cheered, relishing having reduced me to their plaything.´´ ´´Our little spectacle having brought the night market to a standstill, we were now surrounded by about 50 men. I was living the chaotic mob scene from so many movies, and it was every bit as nightmarish as it had always looked on-screen.´´ ´´As I was about to let out a desperate cry that would require no translation, the giant finished...leaving me flinching on the floor like a bug that´s been smashed but isn´t quite dead.´´ ´´Amidst astonishingly beautiful, unsullied waves of sand, a lone figure squatted, holding a roll of toilet paper. It was a peculiar, paradoxical sight.´´ An Amazon.com best-selling collection of travel writing as entertaining for the armchair traveler as indispensable for anyone interested in adventure in North Africa. 1.

As a child, Stephan Faris nearly failed to qualify for any country´s passport. Now, in a story that moves from South Africa to Italy to the United States, he looks at the arbitrariness of nationality. Framed by Faris´s meeting with a young orphan as a reporter in Liberia and their reencounter years later in Minnesota, Homelands makes the case for a complete rethinking of immigration policy. In a world where we´ve globalized capital, culture, and communications, are restrictions on the movement of people still morally tenable? At a time when the immigration debate dominates the headlines, Homelands follows in the tradition of George Orwell´s ´´Marrakech´´ and, more recently, Ta-Nehisi Coates´s case for reparations in The Atlantic. Drawing on more than a decade of international reporting for magazines such as Time, Bloomberg Businessweek, and The Atlantic, Faris takes listeners on a 10-year journey along the borders separating war from peace in Liberia, opportunity from deprivation in Kenya, and safety from disaster today in the deadly waters off Lampedusa - an Italian holiday island that has become the scene of a refugee crisis. On the way, he uncovers a series of unsettling but ultimately redeeming parallels between modern immigration practices and the policies of South Africa´s apartheid regime. Could we really have a world without borders? What would that look like? Based on dozens of interviews with philosophers and diplomats, aid workers and small-town mayors, and a cabinet member of South Africa´s last apartheid government, Faris´s work of fearless frontline journalism also functions as a kind of futurism. Confronting questions inflaming borders in California and Texas, France and Greece, and Morocco and Spain, he takes us into the depths of one of the modern world´s most complex moral dilemmas - and returns with an answer. 1.

This latest volume of autobiography opens in 1934, in an isolated hamlet in the Cotswolds. Mr. Croft-Gooke was 30 years old. He had published six novels, was earning £300 a year, and considered himself ´an enviable young man´. He had a house with peacocks on the lawn. He was happy. He decided however to revisit Argentina, where he travelled extensively, lecturing and meeting old friends and new. When he returned to his isolated hamlet, in fog and snow, he was no longer happy, but restless and unsettled. He decided to go back to Kent, where he was born. With charm and humour, Mr. Croft-Cooke vividly re-creates the places and people of his youth. As a reviewer in The Times Literary Supplement wrote: ´Social historians of the future will do well to consult Mr. Croft-Cooke´s in preference to certain more pretentious and less objective memoirs of the period.´ About the Author: The English author Rupert Croft-Cooke (1903-1979) published 30-odd novels on a wide variety of subjects in his lifetime, as well as poetry, plays, nonfiction books on such diverse topics as Buffalo Bill, Oscar Wilde, Lord Alfred Douglas, Victorian writers, criminals, the circus, gypsies, wine, cookery, and darts. Under the pen name of Leo Bruce he also wrote more than 30 crime novels. At the age of 20, Croft-Cooke spent two years in Buenos Aires, where he founded the journal La Estrella. In 1925 he returned to London and began a career as a freelance journalist and writer. His work appeared in a variety of magazines, including New Writing, Adelphi, and the English Review. In the late 1920s the American magazine Poetry published several of his plays. He was also a radio broadcaster on psychology. In 1940 he joined the British Army and served in Africa and India until 1946. He later wrote several books about his military experiences. From 1953 to 1968 Croft-Cooke lived in Morocco where he wrote his Sensual World series, possibly his most imp 1. Language: English. Narrator: Robert Young.
