The World at Night by Alan Furst
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
Paris, 1940.
The civilized, upper-class life of film producer Jean Casson is derailed by the German occupation of Paris, but Casson learns that with enough money, compromise, and connections, one need not deny oneself the pleasures of Parisian life. Somewhere inside Casson, though, is a stubborn romantic streak.
When he’s offered the chance to take part in an operation of the British secret service, this idealism gives him the courage to say yes.
A simple mission, but it goes wrong, and Casson realizes he must gamble everything, is career, the woman he loves, life itself.
Here is a brilliant re-creation of France, its spirit in the moment of defeat, its valor in the moment of rebirth.

Prisoner 13498: A True Story of Love, Drugs and Jail in Modern China by Robert H. Davies
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
Robert Davies first went to China in 1988 as an overland backpacker and, after a hair-raising two months touring Pakistan, found himself in Kashgar, the fabled Silk Road city. Here his life was irrevocably changed when he fell head over heels in love with Sharapet, an Uighur lady who was already married with a ten-year-old daughter.
Love made them blind to the bureaucracy they had to face, strong for the thousands of miles they had to travel to obtain permission to marry, and resolute against the rage of Sharapet's revenge-seeking ex-husband.
But Robert became involved in the trafficking of hashish. Arrested and taken 2,500 miles across China to Shanghai, he was sentenced to eight and a half years behind bars in one of the largest, most overcrowded jails in Asia - fighting against a corrupt system in grim conditions, with death a constant threat.
He had suffered a legal process where law was merely a word and justice was as elusive as the holy grail and he believed the Chinese authorities had blatantly used him and other foreigners as propaganda tools.

Cambodia's Curse: The Modern History of a Troubled Land
by Joel Brinkley...
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
A generation after the Khmer Rouge, Cambodia shows every sign of having overcome its history,
the streets of Phnom Penh are paved; skyscrapers dot the skyline.
But under this façade lies a country still haunted by its years of terror.
Joel Brinkley won a Pulitzer Prize for his reporting in Cambodia on the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime that killed one quarter of the nation's population during its years in power.
In 1992, the world came together to help pull the small nation out of the mire.
Cambodia became a United Nations protectorate, the first and only time the UN tried something so ambitious.
What did the new, democratically-elected government do with this unprecedented gift?
 
In 2008 and 2009, Brinkley returned to Cambodia to find out. He discovered a population in the grip of a venal government. He learned that one-third to one-half of Cambodians who lived through the Khmer Rouge era have P.T.S.D. and its afflictions are being passed to the next generation.
His extensive close-up reporting in Cambodia's Curse illuminates the country, its people, and the deep historical roots of its modern-day behavior.

The Fire of His Genius: Robert Fulton and the American Dream by Kirkpatrick Sale...
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
This book US $13.00 - from us 160 baht - plus you receive 50% in credit off your next book when you have finished with it...
 
None of the well-dressed crowd that gathered on the Hudson River side of Lower Manhattan on the hot afternoon of August 17, 1808, could have known the importance of the object they had come to see and, mostly, deride.
Robert Fulton's new steamboat, the "North River, the boat that is frequently and wrongly, remembered as the "Clermont.
But, as Kirkpatrick Sale shows in this remarkable biography of Fulton, the "North River's successful four-day round-trip to Albany proved a technology that would transform nineteenth-century America, open up the interior to huge waves of settlers, create and sustain industrial and plantation economies in the nation's heartland, and destroy the remaining Indian civilizations and most of the wild lands on which they depended.
"The North River's four-day trip introduced the machines and culture that marked the birth of the Industrial Revolution in America.
"The Fire of His Genius tells the story of the extraordinarily driven and ambitious inventor who brought all this about, probing into the undoubted genius of his mind but, too, laying bare the darker side of the man and the darker side of the American dream that inspired him.
It depicts one of America's earliest heroes both at the pinnacle of creativity and success, fame, and fortune and in the depths of solitude, recklessness, and contentiousness that preceded his early death (Fulton spent much of his life defending patents for everything from rope-making machinery to submarines to proto-torpedoes that he attempted to sell, in succession, to the French, the British, and the American navies).
All this is set against a brilliant portrait of a dynamic historical period filled with characters from Bonaparte to Jefferson, Cornelius Vanderbilt to Meriwether Lewis, Robert Livingston to Benjamin West, and events from the Lewis and Clark expedition to the War of 1812, the Louisiana Purchase to the bombing of Fort McHenry, the treason trial of Aaron Burr to the "Great Removal" of American Indians.
Here are the "taming" of America's rivers and the building of its great canals, the introduction to every body of water of Fulton's "large, noisy, showy, fast, brash, exciting, powerful, and audacious" machine that was the very embodiment of America.
A biography that bears comparison to the best work of David McCullough, Dava Sobel, and Garry Wills, "The Fire of His Genius is a remarkable achievement: an extraordinarily clear window into an extraordinary time told with deftness, zest, and unflagging verve.

A timely and essential update on globalization, its successes and discontents, powerfully illuminated by one of our most respected journalists.
 
When scholars write the history of the world twenty years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004," what will they say was the most crucial development?
The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war?
Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing, creating an explosion of wealth in the middle classes of the world's two biggest nations, giving them a huge new stake in the success of globalization?
And with this "flattening" of the globe, which requires us to run faster in order to stay in place, has the world gotten too small and too fast for human beings and their political systems to adjust in a stable manner?
 
In this brilliant new book, the award-winning columnist Thomas Friedman demystifies the brave new world for readers, allowing them to make sense of the often bewildering global scene unfolding before their eyes.
With his inimitable ability to translate complex foreign policy and economic issues, Friedman explains how the flattening of the world happened at the dawn of the twenty-first century; what it means to countries, companies, communities, and individuals; and how governments and societies can, and must, adapt.
The World Is Flat is the timely and essential update on globalization, its successes and discontents, powerfully illuminated by one of our most respected journalists.

Ten Little New Yorkers A Novel By Kinky Friedman,
Also the Prisoner of Vandam Street.
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
Kinky Friedman has always proven himself to be a master of the offbeat and irreverent, and still manages to pull off a helluva whodunit in the process.
Now the Kinkster may have met his match in this superbly crafted, fiendishly clever tale of a murderer who's methodically killing off unsuspecting Manhattan men.
Gallingly, all clues point toward Kinky.
 
Greenwich Village is the setting for Ten Little New Yorkers, a tale of murder and mayhem as only Friedman can warble it and featuring his usual suspects, including Ratso, Dr. Watson to Kinky's singular Sherlock Holmes.
As the clues and bodies pile up and the cops strong-arm Kinky as their man, he has to jump through hoops to find the real killer, all the while maintaining his outrage and, of course, his innocence.
The murderer may be someone close to Kinky, which leads to a shocker of an ending that will surely take Kinky devotees completely by surprise.
 
With a wink and a nod to Dame Agatha (as in Christie), after which all resemblance to those classic mysteries fades, this is one of Friedman's most complex and irresistible page-turners yet.
Cunningly tentious issues of life, death, guilt, innocence, love, loss, and the danger of false confessions, this is Kinky Friedman at his wily, suspenseful and sacrilegious best.
 
The Prisoner of Vandam Street;
Alfred Hitchcock's classic film Rear Window gets an affectionate kick in the butt in this homage from master crime writer, philosopher, and equal-opportunity offender Kinky Friedman.
 
It's a case of malaria versus murder when private dick extraordinaire Kinky Friedman comes down with a tropical disease, in the Jungle known as New York City, and is confined to his loft on Vandam Street in lower Manhattan, a prisoner in his own home with only his cat and black puppet head as company (neither of whom are great conversationalists).
 
With little to do but stare out the window in between bedridden bouts of fever and hallucinations, Kinky calls on assistance from the stalwart Village Irregulars, who proceed to dish out their own uniquely skewed brand of tea and sympathy, turning the loft into a virtual Mardi Gras of confusion and drunken debauchery.
 
Suffering almost as much from company overload as from his fever, Kinky welcomes a rare moment of calm as he finds himself once again alone in his loft. Resuming his position at the kitchen window, he spots a pretty young woman in an apartment across the street.
What he hopes might be titillating turns terrifying, however, as a man joins the woman and proceeds to attack her. Sure that he's witnessed a crime, Kinky calls in the cops, but, upon investigating his claim, they can find neither a victim nor an apartment across the street. In addition, no one else saw or heard anything that would indicate a crime had taken place. Was it foul play or merely a fevered dream?
 
Convinced that their friend is about to slip off into the land of eternal slumber, the Village Irregulars increase their vigilance and in the process raise the Kinkster's irritability level to an all-time high. Not to be deterred, however, Kinky sticks to his story and is rewarded when a few days later he sees the man in the apartment again, but this time with a gun.
 
Outrageous, audacious, and ingeniously crafted, The Prisoner of Vandam Street is vintage Kinky: irreverent, clever, and full of the hardened philosophy and mordant wit that has earned him a vast and devoted readership.

Prisoners of Hope: The Story of Our Captivity and Freedom in Afghanistan by Dayna Curry, Heather Mercer & Stacy Mattingly.....
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
When Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer arrived in Afghanistan, they had come to help bring a better life and a little hope to some of the poorest and most oppressed people in the world.
Within a few months, their lives were thrown into chaos as they became pawns in historic international events.
They were arrested by the ruling Taliban government for teaching about Christianity to the people with whom they worked.
In the middle of their trial, the events of September 11, 2001, led to the international war on terrorism, with the Taliban a primary target.
While many feared Curry and Mercer could not survive in the midst of war, Americans nonetheless prayed for their safe return, and in November their prayers were answered.
 
In Prisoners of Hope, Dayna Curry and Heather Mercer tell the story of their work in Afghanistan, their love for the people they served, their arrest, trial, and imprisonment by the Taliban, and their rescue by U.S. Special Forces.
The heart of the book will discuss how two middle-class American women decided to leave the comforts of home in exchange for the opportunity to serve the disadvantaged, and how their faith motivated them and sustained them through the events that followed.
Their story is a magnificent narrative of ordinary women caught in extraordinary circumstances as a result of their commitment to serve the poorest and most oppressed women and children in the world.
This book will be inspiring to those who seek a purpose greater than themselves.

Heart of Darkness and Other Tales by Joseph Conrad
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
The finest of all Conrad's tales, Heart of Darkness is set in an atmosphere of mystery and menace, and tells of Marlow's perilous journey up the Congo River to relieve his employer's agent, the renowned and formidable Mr. Kurtz.
What he sees on his journey, and his eventual encounter with Kurtz, horrify and perplex him, and call into question the very bases of civilization and human nature.
Endlessly reinterpreted by critics and adapted for film, radio, and television, the story shows Conrad at his most intense and sophisticated.
The other three tales in this volume depict corruption and obsession, and question racial assumptions.
Set in the exotic surroundings of Africa, Malaysia, and the east, they variously appraise the glamour, folly, and rapacity of Imperial adventure.
This revised edition uses the English first edition texts and has a new chronology and bibliography.

Field Gray by Philip Kerr
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
Philip Kerr delivers a novel with the noir sensibility of Raymond Chandler, the realpolitik of vintage John le Carré, and the dark moral vision of Graham Greene.
Striding across Europe through the killing fields of three decades-from riot-torn Berlin in 1931 to Adenauer's Germany in 1954, awash in duplicitous "allies" busily undermining one another-Field Gray reveals a world based on expediency, where the ends justify the means and no one can be trusted.
It brings us a hero who is sardonic, tough - talking, and cynical, but who does have a rough sense of humor and a rougher sense of right and wrong.
He's Bernie Gunther.
He drinks too much and smokes excessively and is somewhat overweight (but a Russian prisoner-of-war camp will take care of those bad habits).
He's Bernie Gunther-a brave man, because when there is nothing left to lose, honor rules.
"Bernie Gunther is the most anti heroic of antiheroes in this gripping, offbeat thriller.

Margrave of the Marshes by John Peel & Sheila Ravenscroft.
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange...
 
Through nigh-on forty years of laconic brilliance on Radio 1, a musical taste which defined a culture and his widely popular Radio 4 show, Home Truths, John Peel reached out to an audience that was as diverse as his record collection.
He was a genuinely great Britain, beloved by millions.
John's unique voice and sensibility were evident in everything he did, and nowhere is that more true than in these pages.
 
Margrave of the Marshes is the astonishing book John Peel began to write before his untimely death in October 2004, completed by the woman who knew him best, his wife Sheila. It is a unique and intimate portrait of a life, a marriage and a family which is every bit as extraordinary as the man himself - a fitting tribute to a bona fide legend.
