Tales France (Revised and Updated
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!

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. --
