Report of a world tour done without flying. 95,450 km, 528 days and 24 countries were crossed to accomplish this extraordinary experience, alone. An exciting journey that started in the Himalayas and ended in Siberia, during which Oceans were crossed on merchant ships. A journey not only through wonderful places on Earth, but most of all a powerful, spiritual experience, marked by an introspective evolution lived country after country by a traveller of our times. Travelling considered as medicine for the soul, to cure the malaise inherited in adolescence from the consumer society he comes from, which lead to drug and alcohol abuse. This is not a conventional guide, it is much more, it is a genuine, authentic story of life.

Live Life Like Hank Moody "There's no such thing as a two hour orgasm or my lesser work. You're shit out of luck." - Hank Moody A lot of people want to be like Hank Moody - the style, girls, looks, and general aura is enough to send half of the population wild and the other half running to the hills, away from territory where a barely-if-at-all-functioning reckless sociopath alcoholic child-man can become a sex symbol. This is America - the grass is green and the other grass causes a lot more interest. And this is California - all the girls are pretty or they're taken away and (at best) killed or (at worst) shipped to Portland. Presumably. But if you can't beat them, join them - then at least you'll probably still have the option to beat off (if you can't see the metaphor, it's your own fault) - and L.A. Moore's book on becoming Hank Moody is one of the very best of its genre as a self-help book built around the imagined life of a fictional character. It doesn't teach you how to become fiction, but it will show you the mystical method to becoming more like America's favourite sex-crazed modern romantic. This great guide is helpfully separated into different sections - or, if you're the literary type, chapters - which each talk about a different part of Hank's life and how to best imitate it, mostly simply to fuck beautiful women, but also to explore what life has to offer, celebrate excellent friendships, see how much love, booze, drugs and life can tear you apart, and getting the right style so you look much, much better than what you actually are. Isn't that what confidence is, anyway? Confidence is - maybe above everything else - what Hank Moody is truly made of. And therefore, that's what this book focuses more on than anything else. Of course, there are stacks of books out there on the internet or even presumably in people's book collections that will claim to be able to teach you to be confident, but this is where Moore's book differs - it won't teach you to be confident; it'll teach you to teach yourself. This is about Hank Moody and his life and how you might be able to copy it - it's not about you. Nobody wants to write about you. That's why you want to be like Hank Moody. As the man himself says, "I can't teach you how to write, and anybody who says they can is full of shit." In a similar way, nobody can teach you how to be confident - you have to work that out all on your own. This book will certainly help though. Similarly, nobody's going to teach you how to get all of the beautiful women - those who know are a little bit busy fucking - but watching them do it (pulling, not fucking - that's a different thing) will be immensely helpful with your own learning process. Remember, though: he may be easy, but he's not sleazy. Enjoy the book.

Warned by a Hong Kong fortune-teller not to risk flying for a whole year, Tiziano Terzani — a vastly experienced Asia correspondent — took what he called “the first step into an unknown world. . . . It turned out to be one of the most extraordinary years I have ever spent: I was marked for death, and instead I was reborn.” Traveling by foot, boat, bus, car, and train, he visited Burma, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Mongolia, Japan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Geography expanded under his feet. He consulted soothsayers, sorcerers, and shamans and received much advice — some wise, some otherwise — about his future. With time to think, he learned to understand, respect, and fear for older ways of life and beliefs now threatened by the crasser forms of Western modernity. He rediscovered a place he had been reporting on for decades. And it reinvigorated him. The result is an immensely engaging, insightful, and idiosyncratic journey, filled with unexpected delights and strange encounters. A bestseller and major prizewinner in Italy, A Fortune-Teller Told Me is a powerful warning against the new missionaries of materialism. From the Hardcover edition.

**NOMINATED FOR THE MÉDICIS PRIZE 2018** 'A tale of travel and adventure, the story of a body utterly surrendered to pain and joy. It is mind-blowing, a delight.' Le Monde Lili is a runaway. She’s left behind her native France to go in search of freedom, of adventure, of life. Her search takes her to Kodiak, Alaska, home to a ragtag community of fishermen, army vets and drifters who man the island’s fishing fleet. Despite her tiny frame, faltering English and lack of experience, Lili lands a job on board the Rebel, the only woman on the boat. Out on the open sea, everything is heightened: colours are more vivid, sounds are louder and the work is harder than anything she's ever known. The terrifying intensity of the ocean is addictive to the point of danger. But Lili is not alone: in her fellow crewmembers she finds kindred spirits – men living on the edge, drawn to extremes. Based on Catherine Poulain’s own experiences, and written in taut, muscular prose, Woman at Sea cuts through the noise of life and straight to the heart of our innermost longings.
