Greene's fine sense of humor is displayed in this warm and far-reaching comic novel, Travels with My Aunt, a bestseller when it appeared originally. At his mother's funeral, Henry Pulling, a stuffy, retired bank manager with an interest in dahlias, meets his Aunt Augusta. The indomitable Aunt Augusta pulls Henry along on a whirlwind adventure traveling with an old lover, Wordsworth; Curran, the founder of a doggies' church; O'Toole, the C.I.A. man obsessed by statistics and his counter-culture daughter; and old Mr. Visconti, who has been wanted by Interpol for twenty years. Henry describes their activities with shock and bewilderment, and finally with the tenderness, of a fellow traveler going their way. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

Julia Llewellyn-Smith - journalist, writer and interviewer of the famous - has set out on a fascinating project. Leaving her comfortable, urban, middle class professional life, she travelled alone to places in which order has broken down, places such as Zaire and Haiti, south-central Los Angeles and Moss Side in Manchester. She wanted to discover what it was like to live in such chaos, such unpredictability, such tension. Her style is light-hearted and deeply personal, and through her journey, she discovers what it is about civilization and an ordered society that is truly important to her - and to us.

This is a fictional tale but based on the true rags-to-riches story of a young Irish girl escaping the poverty of post–Potato Famine Ireland. Annie Elizabeth Maher ends up in the service of one of the wealthiest and well-connected families in New York. She mixes with artists, politicians, and wealthy business people and travels the world with her mistress, Georgiana. After Georgiana dies young, Annie retreats to make a new life in Long Branch, New Jersey. A successful and philanthropic woman with a portfolio of seven properties in 1900 is a rare event, let alone one who has emerged from poverty in Ireland. Nonetheless, she makes her mark on this seaside town and lives happily. However, she is arrested in 1924 and is committed to Trenton Asylum as a lunatic—was this a conspiracy to bring her down or an intolerance of female success? Of her time in Trenton under the now infamous Dr. Henry Cotton, how will this megalomania in medicine impact on her life?
