  4. Xenophobe's Guide to the English

    Xenophobe's Guide to the English

    Regular Price: $7.95

    Special Price: $6.76

    Never overstep the mark

    Moderation—a treasured ideal—means a lot to the English. Their respect for it is reflected in their shared dislike of any person who “goes too far.”

     

    Irrational rationality

    The English can admire something without enjoying it, or enjoy something they suspect is fundamentally reprehensible. You can never be sure which stance they are going to take—the reassuringly reasonable, or the wildly irrational.

     

    I'm fine, really

    Stoicism, the capacity to greet life's vicissitudes with cheerful calm, is an essential ingredient of Englishness.

     

    Push-me, pull-you

    Two equally fundamental but contradictory English characteristics are a love of continuity and a yearning for change. In the English character these two opposite desires vie with each other constantly, which produces some curious behavior patterns and several characteristics most usually observed in the classic split personality.

This is a colourful guidebook that offers far more than dry practicalities; Mills interviews local craftsmen and characters, and reveals local stories and folklore. She shows the rewards to be had from ‘slow’ breaks that allow you to get under the skin of the region, and highlights restaurants and cafés that use locally produced ingredients.

  10. A Week at the Airport

    A Week at the Airport

    Regular Price: $15.00

    Special Price: $10.99

    From the bestselling author of The Art of Travel comes a wittily intriguing exploration of the strange "non-place" that he believes is the imaginative center of our civilization.

    Given unprecedented access to one of the world’s busiest airports as a “writer-in-residence,” Alain de Botton found it to be a showcase for many of the major crosscurrents of the modern world—from our faith in technology to our destruction of nature, from our global interconnectedness to our romanticizing of the exotic. He met travelers from all over and spoke with everyone from baggage handlers to pilots to the airport chaplain. Weaving together these conversations and his own observations—of everything from the poetry of room service menus to the eerie silence in the middle of the runway at midnight—de Botton has produced an extraordinary meditation on a place that most of us never slow down enough to see clearly. Lavishly illustrated in color by renowned photographer Richard Baker, A Week at the Airport reveals the airport in all its turbulence and soullessness and—yes—even beauty. Learn More
