In the grand tradition of Stein and Hemingway, Gopnik planned to walk the paths of the Tuilleries, to enjoy philosophical discussion in cafes - in short, to lead the fabled life of an American in Paris. Of course, there was also the matter of raising a child and carrying on with everyday, not-so-fabled life. 338 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

A Pattern of Islands, Arthur Grimble
18 Arthur Grimble A Pattern of Islands
Eland 247190 London 2010 1906011451 / 9781906011451 Softcover Very Good Condition "A Pattern of Islands" is the funny, charming and self-deprecating adventure story of a young man in the Pacific. Living for thirty years in the Gilbert and Ellis Islands, Grimble was ultimately initiated but not before he was severely tested, as when he was used as human bait for a giant octopus. Beyond the hilarious and frightening adventure stories, "A Pattern of Islands" is also a true testament to the life of these Pacific islanders. Grimble collected stories from the last generation who could remember the full glory of the old pagan ways. This is anthropology with its hair down. Like discovering a treasure chest of fables, which were once true, it is full of stories of magic, dances and legends, rituals, spells and a way of life that have now disappeared from this worldexcept within the covers of this book. 262 pages.

Biting The Big Apple [A Memoir of Life, Love in New York City], Bella Vendramini
20 Bella Vendramini Biting The Big Apple [A Memoir of Life, Love in New York City]
Hachette 245046 Australia 2008 0733621848 / 9780733621840 Trade Paperback Good Condition Bella knew there must be more to life than a series of casual jobs working for increasingly freakish bosses and drinking tea in her Glebe kitchen each night. An actor by trade, she scraped together enough money for a one-way ticket to the Big Apple, enrolling on impulse in the prestigious Strasberg Institute. What life in New York City would offer her she could never have predicted...sometimes ugly, mostly poverty-stricken but always exhilarating, Bella embraced the rollercoaster ride. This is the story of how Bella took on New York - her brilliant love affair that turned sour, the friends she made, her acting and her studies and day-to-day life in that fabulous town. For most of us this is a dream but for Bella it's her life, and she writes about it with passion but also surprise at where she has let life take her. 316 pages. Tanning to page edges. Cover has a few creases. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Autobiography::Memoir; Biography & Autobiography; Travel::Travel & Exploration. ISBN/EAN: 9780733621840.
