Travelers' Tales France (Revised and Updated

CoverNot an ordinary travel guide that tells you where to find the cheapest hotels. I would say reading this book is like reading the diaries of many different travellers. As I read it, I found myself exploring the country and meeting the locals and gaining the experiences like they did. I wandered with them from Paris to Brittany and down south to Aix-en-Provence and laughed with them at funny situations The French are very unique people, this book brings you down to get to know their deeper souls; at the same time it helps you to understand their eating culture and interests better, if not 100%. A good book for first time visitor to France and definitely interesting for those who like to read about countries and peoples.

Lee Su Kim: Malaysian Flavours. Insights Into Things Malaysian
A book about the way Malaysians live, eat, drive, how we speak our Malaysian English and some cross-cultural encounters with foreigners and between different ethnic groups in Malaysia. This book will make us laugh at ourselves and proud of ourselves for being a Malaysian. It will also help foreigners to get to know our culture and understand the way we express ourselves, the Malaysian way. It should reduce the culture shocks that might occur. If you have a Malaysian spouse or have business contacts with Malaysians, this is a must-read book. It’s very entertaining!

From Kirkus Reviews
Freelance translator Cassandra Reilly (Gaudi Afternoon, 1990)- -with two weeks to kill before boarding the Trans-Mongolian Express in Budapest and heading for China--becomes embroiled in Magyar- Rumanian feuding, post-Ceauescu tattletaling, and murder, all revolving around the decrepit Arcata Spa Hotel in scenic Transylvania. When an eccentric American grandmother is accused of killing the spa's randy, nonagenarian founder in one of the galvanic baths, Cassandra's suspect roster includes: a bossy waitress, the doctor-in-charge, a teary assistant, and Frau Sophie, a spa regular with plans to revitalize the area. Also on hand: the Snapp family, eager to make contact with their adopted daughter's birthmother; a helpful tour guide, Nadia, who spends most of the book making car repairs; and several engaging lesbians (Cassandra and her traveling chum Jacqueline included). Ceauescu's atrocities notwithstanding: a very funny second outing--with an uproarious mud-bath sequence and amusing gender- bending pronoun slip-ups. Plus: travel-writing so compelling that you'll be reaching for your passport. Wilson is smart, tart, and knows how to write from a feminist perspective without once stooping to polemics. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP.
