Just so there isn't any confusion, these have nothing to do with me. To date, I've published the two books you'll find here, and no others. As part of his series of meeting the short listed authors for the Costa Book of the Year award, the BBC's Nick Higham has spoken to me when I won the Costa prize for the best children's book of A stunning debut novel without a false note.

Z imbabwe, s The war is over, independence has been won and Robert Mugabe has come to power offering hope, land and freedom to black Africans. It is the end of the Old Way and the start of a promising new era.
For Robert Jacklin, it's all new: new continent, new country, new school. And very quickly he is forced to understand a new way of thinking, because for some of his classmates the sound of guns is still loud, and their battles rage on… white boys who want their old country back, not this new black African government. Boys like Ivan. Clever, cunning, wicked Ivan. For him, there is still one last battle to fight, and he's taking it right to the very top….

Add coupon code BB Tourism and Informal Encounters in Cuba lifts many taboos on friendship and love in touristic settings and paves the way for future research on the articulation between tourism, love migration and intimacy in a globalized world.
The book should become a classic read for tourism anthropologists and, more generally, for those who see in touristic phenomena something more than an industry of illusions and golden hordes.
Tourism and Informal Encounters in Cuba offers readers a multilayered analysis of connecting across boundaries, as visitors and hosts negotiate power, desire, fear, and hope. Particularly noteworthy is the quality of his ethnographic work.
It offers a unique view of the intimate negotiations between Cubans and tourists at a time when Cuba is in the spotlight with the pending opening to the U. For specialists, the highlight of this book is the way that Simoni synthesizes academic research on the informal economy with the phenomenology of relationship development.
What emerges is a narrative that reflects common tourism experiences in a manner both intimate and philosophically revealing while crafted so that his protagonists are never exposed or ridiculed… this remains the outstanding strength of this contribution as well as the broader research it draws on: opening rather than closing debates and leaving space to be surprised: thus Simoni, as a tourist researcher, actually manages to be a seasoned traveller while joyfully riding the ambiguities this entails.
