Robert Hughes once described Michael Sorkin as “unique in America––brave, principled, highly informed and fiercely funny.” All Over the Map confirms all of these superlatives as Sorkin assaults “the national security city, with its architecture of manufactured fear.”

What's a wise, witty travel writer to do when she reaches forty and is still single? Wander the globe searching for romance and adventure, of course. On a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, to celebrate her fortieth birthday, Laura Fraser confronts the unique trajectory of her life. Divorced and childless in her thirties, she found solace in the wanderlust that had always directed her heart—and found love and comfort in the arms of a dashing Frenchman. Their Italian affair brought her back to herself—but now she wonders if her passion for travel (and for short-lived romantic rendezvous) has deprived her of what she secretly wants most from life: a husband, a family, a home. When her Parisian lover meets her in Oaxaca and gives her news that he’s found someone new, Laura is stunned and hurt. Now, it seems, she has nothing but her own independence for company—and, at forty, a lot more wrinkles on her face and fewer years of fertility. How is Laura going to reconcile what seem to be two opposite desires: for adventure, travel, great food, and new experiences, but also a place to call home—and a loving pair of arms to greet her there? And so,

Canada's most verbally virtuosic comic makes his literary debut—and he's just as richly, gloriously funny on the page as on stage. His legion of fans—the ones who ensure his every show the length and breadth of Canada is sold out—recognize Ron James as one of the great stand-ups of his generation. His seemingly improvisational flights of fancy—no two shows are ever the same—are crammed with inventive phrase-making, feature a voluminous vocabulary, and put every word into the service of uproarious comedy. He sounds like a man born to write a great book—and now at last he has. But this is a book he has been writing for most of his life, in his head, in his car, while driving from gig to gig. In All Over the Map, Ron has brilliantly captured the voice that has enthralled millions on stage and screen. He also lets up a little on the usually relentless laughs (though there are still plenty of those) to reveal a new dimension to his beloved showbiz character. His hilarious reminscences of growing up in Nova Scotia and his early struggles as an aspiring comic, his reveries on such topics as family, country, celebrity and lessons learned from

Zu schön, um wahr zu sein Kalifornien als Insel, versunkene Königreiche und das irdische Paradies – diese und andere gefühlte Fakten haben Kartografen quer durch die Jahrhunderte fein säuberlich in ihren Atlanten festgehalten. Dabei hatten manche dieser Phantome ein erstaunlich langes Leben. Nach einer im 17. Jahrhundert der Phantasie entsprungenen Insel im Golf von Mexiko etwa hat man bis 2009 gesucht. Dann gab man sich geschlagen. Wo nahm der Irrglaube seinen Anfang? Warum wurden geografische Orte aufgezeichnet, die es gar nicht gab? Und was faszinierte die Menschen an all den bizarren Geschichten und Gestalten? Die hier vorgestellten historischen Karten präsentieren neben mancher tatsächlichen Entdeckung von Reisenden und Forschern vor allem Erfindungen und Irrtümer. Zusammen mit spannenden Begleittexten ergeben sie ein amüsantes Buch zum Blättern, Staunen und Wundern.
