The Third Tower
(eBook ePub)
Rix, Len
 

Italy, 1936. The country is steeped in Fascism, the chattering populace high on military parades, cheap train fares and nationalist pride. Amidst this mass euphoria travels one solitary Jewish-Hungarian schoolteacher, aware he may never again have the chance to see the country he wrote so powerfully of in his novel, Journey by Moonlight. What results is a series of meditations, short in form yet deeply reflective, on politics, Italian history and landscape, and the importance of maintaining individual truth and joy in the face of collective ideologies. Timelessly relevant, and impossible to recommend too highly.

The Art of Wandering
(eBook ePub)
Coverley, Merlin
 

Merlin Coverley takes the opportunity to explore in greater depth some of the interconnected themes of his previous books such as Occult London and Psychogeography. He examines the way in which various literary and art movements have been influenced by the simple act of walking and how this role has evolved through history. Coverley covers the more obvious writers as well as many writers/walkers who have slipped into obscurity.

The Art of Wandering is an accomplished piece of literary theory with political overtones that, like Psychogeography, is informative in a way that will encourage you to research his subject further. A fascinating read.

Naples '44
(eBook ePub)
Lewis, Norman
 

In 1943, Norman Lewis was posted to Allied-occupied Naples in an intelligence operation never quite defined for himself or anyone else in his section. He found a city in disarray. In the absence of a functioning economy and little discernible civil structure, people coped with extraordinary freedoms and constraints in the ways only people can – with determination and creativity. This diary chronicles the daily life of a place where black markets flourish, jails are so full that prisoners get mislaid, and the aquarium is relieved of its tropical fish by a starving populace. Meanwhile tanks roll by, Vesuvius erupts, and twice a year the blood of San Gennaro liquefies in a miracle capable of provoking riots if not satisfactorily enacted. A cracking read.
