It’s often said that a good book takes us somewhere we’ve never been before, and here’s the proof: a book-lover’s Baedeker to more than 500 literary locales across the United States and Europe. Novel Destinations invites readers to follow in the footsteps of much-loved authors, discover the scenes that sparked their imaginations, glimpse the lives they led, and share a bit of the experiences they transformed so eloquently into print. If you’re looking to indulge in literary adventure, you’ll find all the inspiration and information you need here, along with behind-the-scenes stories such as these: After Ernest Hemingway survived two near-fatal plane crashes during an African safari, he perused his obituaries and sipped champagne on a canal-side terrace in Venice. Washington Irving's wisteria-draped cottage in the Hudson Valley was once occupied by members of the Van Tassel family, immortalized in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. A mysterious incident at a stone tower near Dublin made such a vivid impression on James Joyce that he drew on it for the opening scene of Ulysses. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle consulted on the mystery of Agatha Christie's 1926 disappearance before she resurfaced under an assumed name in northern England. Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The House of the Seven Gables was inspired by a seaside manse in Salem, Massachusetts, infamous witch trials in which his ancestor played a role.

Skeleton Key to the Suicide of My Father Ross Lockridge Jr Full Color

WHY did my brilliant father, Ross Lockridge, Jr., execute himself at 33, March 6, 1948, while his first novel, RAINTREE COUNTY, was the Number-One Bestseller in America? Critics were hailing it as the sole recent contender for the ultimate American title, "The Great American Novel." Even as my father was murdering himself, he was experiencing critical and financial success beyond the greatest of great expectations. He died with full knowledge that his life, viewed from the street, had exceeded all but the most extravagant of human dreams. My book holds the SKELETON KEY that unlocks the Riddle of Raintree County. I offer this painful story less from choice than from an obligation to history and to truth, in order that the truth will not die with me. Squeamishness and mendacity, blood brothers, go hand in hand. Miss Manners plays no part this tragedy. Truth is not subject to etiquette or taste, and it is precisely because the truth about my father's brief, terrible life and his forlorn death is unspeakable that the truth demands to be told.I am issuing my book in full color because the pictures embody, at the very least, half of the story.

Travel is sacred. Travel is a quest. Travel is an escape. Travel is a passion! It is enlightening, a distraction, a novelty, a dream fulfilled. It may inspire joy, terror, longing – often, all three. Women explorers and travelers are a special breed. Some were also great writers, recording their cross-cultural impressions with stunning vividness, blending history, myth, technology, and poetic imagination. The 22 courageous women profiled in this book encircled the globe. Together, they form a grand tradition and speak to us today as never before – - Lady Hester Stanhope (1776-1839) left the comfort of England to wander through the Near East – never to return home, so deeply did she treasure her freedom - Fanny Lewald (1811-89) traveled through Europe and especially Italy to record its Risorgimento - Pandita Ramabai (1858-1922) traveled from India and lived through Western experiences that revamped her ideas - Daisy Bates (1859-1951), Irish to the roots, immersed herself in Australian Aboriginals - Gertrude Bell (1868-1926), dubbed Queen of the Desert, was the most powerful woman in Edwardian England - the Danish Isak Dinesen (1885-1962) made her mark in Africa - Anaïs Nin (1903-77) may be thought of as a mental traveler - Freya Stark (1893-1993) – knighted by Queen Elizabeth for her contribution to travel literature – lived among the Druze of Syria and in shades of our own time researched the deadly terrorist group of ancient Persian Assassins - Oriana Fallaci (1930- ) has literally covered the world - Valentina Vladimirovna Tereshkova (1937- ), has surely traveled the farthest as the first woman in space A dozen other women who boldly crossed international barriers often to encounter the most patriarchal cultures of their time are focused on in this delightful book – a significant contribution to travel literature as well as to women’s studies.

Theodosia Ernest Vol 2

Excerpt from Theodosia Ernest, Vol. 2: Or, Ten Days' Travel in Search of the Church What the prophets often did, and what Jesus habitually did, has been done by good men in every age. They have invented narratives, sometimes brief, and designed to enforce and illustrate a single thought, and sometimes continued and connected, in order to convey a system of doctrine or a series of truths. These are fables, or parables, poems or allegories, or simple stories, as may best suit the objects which the speaker or writer has in view. If Bunyan had merely told in plain, didactic language, the fears, the hindrances, the doubts, the sorrows, the hopes and labors and final triumphs of the Christian, he would have taught just what his Pilgrim's Progress was designed to teach; but he would not have taught it so effectually, nor indeed so truthfully, as he has done by means of his inimitable work of fiction, in which the truth is not only told to the ear, but shown, as it were, to the eye of the mind, acting itself out in its natural and necessary results.

This lavish over-size 10 x 12 book in beautiful landscape format brings to life the more than one dozen colorful places the great 20th century novelist Ernest Hemingway called home--for short periods or for years. Hemingway won the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and in 1954 was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Hundreds of spectacular new digital images capture the odyssey of the adventurous author's remarkable life. Starting at his birthplace home in Oak Park, Illinois, you'll follow his footsteps north to his boyhood summer home on Lake Superior in northern Michigan. Then onto the Italian front during World War I and Milan; Paris and Pampola; Key West to Sun Valley, Africa to Havana. Hemingway made all these places and more as vivid and indelible as his fictional characters. Juxtaposed against page after page of lush landscapes and cityscapes are historic sepia portraits of the author, friends and family in all these far-flung locations. This is a book filled with the romance and inspiration of a great writer's favorite places--the perfect gift for the literate traveler.
