With Open Arms: Short Stories of Misadventures in Morocco: Matthew Felix
When Matthew had to renew his European visa, his point of exit was obvious: he was going to Morocco. Memories of his previous trip filled him with anxiety. What was he thinking? After everything that had happened, did he really want to go back? Scams. Altercations. Mishaps. But also humor and beauty. 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.

Il più sanguinoso dei conflitti, la prima delle guerre globali fu anticipata da eventi nodali per la storia dell´Europa e del resto del mondo. Nel primo volume della ´´storia della Prima Guerra Mondiale´´ ripercorreremo il sistema di alleanze che si era instaurato nella comunità europea, le vicende e i fattori scatenanti come le guerre balcaniche e la crisi in Marocco che portarono al fatidico attentato di Sarajevo.

The bloodiest conflict, the first of the global wars, was anticipated by nodal events in the history of Europe and the rest of the world. The first volume of the History of the First World War retraces the alliance system that had been established in the European community, the events and triggers of the Balkan wars, and the crisis in Morocco that led to the fateful attack in Sarajevo. The final part of the book contains the appendices to the history of the First World War: official documents of the time, such as the Treaty of the Triple Alliance, with the direct voice of history and stories that offer testimony of an epochal event that - even after a century - is striking for its drama and ferocity.

?Bewitched? is a short story by Edith Warton, first published in 1926 in the collection ?Here and Beyond?. The stories include ghost stories, character studies and social dramas set in Brittany, New England, and Morocco. Along with ?The Young Gentleman?, ?Bewitched? shows clear Gothic leanings, especially in its emphasis on architecture and the gradual revealing of secrets. Edith Wharton (1862 ? 1937) was an American novelist, playwright, short story writer, and designer. She is famous for using her intimate knowledge of aristocratic New York society to authentically portray life during the Gilded Age. She was the first woman ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1921 and was inducted into the National Women´s Hall of Fame in 1996. Other notable works by this author include: ?A Son at the Front? (1923), ?The Mother´s Recompense? (1925), and ?Twilight Sleep? (1927). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
