My Book Selection for Zanzibar

I am not sure whether they will all make it with me, but this is the planned selection so far, in no order:

The loneliness of the long distance runner – Alan Sillitoe

“Brilliant and biting tales of working class life and morals”

Man and Wife – Tony Parsons

Man and wife stands on its own as a brilliant novel about families in the new century. written with all the humour, passion and superb storytelling that have made Tony Parsons a favourite author in over thirty countries.

The time of the young soldiers – Hans Peter Richter

Part of the Armada War Classics which are personal accounts of the bravery, endurance and foresight of ordinary men and women caught up in the horrors of the Second World War.

Snail-Mail No More – Paula Danziger and Ann M Martin

Long distance friendship via emails

Beyond Ugly – Constance Briscoe

Triumphing over a loveless childhood

Clara’s War – Clara Kramer

A miraculous story of one girl’s survival under the Nazis

Butterfly Brain – Barry Cryer

Currently 74, a third of his life has already passed and he invites you to enjoy this wonderfully funny account of it, a decorous orgy of nostalgia

Planet Walker – John Francis, Ph.D

17 years of silence, 22 years of walking

The Symposium – Plato

Plato’s retelling of the discourses between Socrates and his friends on such subjects as love and desire, truth and illusion, spiritual transcendence and the qualities of good ruler profoundly affected the ways in which we view relationships, society and leadership – and shaped the whole tradition of Western philosophy.

Dog Walks Man – John Zeaman

A six-Legged Odyssey

The Happiness Hypothesis – Jonathan Haidt

Putting ancient wisdom and philosophy to the test of Modern Science

I am waiting for:

Living in the Heart: How to Enter Into the Sacred Space Within the Heart with CD (Audio)

Melchizedek, Drunvalo
 
And a colleague suggested he lent me the Hitchhiker’s guide to the Galaxy.
 
Wonder if I will have room for clothes!! 😉
