'Warm, funny . . . It's had my whole family howling with laughter and shedding a few tears' - Shappi Khorsandi, Guardian 'A proper travelogue - a joyful, moving and stereotype-busting tale' - National Geographic Traveller, Books of the Year In 2011, at the height of tension between the British and Iranian governments, travel writer Lois Pryce found a note left on her motorcycle outside the Iranian Embassy in London: ... I wish that you will visit Iran so you will see for yourself about my country. WE ARE NOT TERRORISTS!!! Please come to my city, Shiraz. It is very famous as the friendliest city in Iran, it is the city of poetry and gardens and wine!!! Your Persian friend, Habib Intrigued, Lois decides to ignore the official warnings against travel (and the warnings of her friends and family) and sets off alone on a 3,000 mile ride from Tabriz to Shiraz, to try to uncover the heart of this most complex and incongruous country. Along the way, she meets carpet sellers and drug addicts, war veterans and housewives, doctors and teachers - people living ordinary lives under the rule of an extraordinarily strict Islamic government. Revolutionary Ride is the story of a people and a country. Religious and hedonistic, practical and poetic, modern and rooted in tradition - and with a wild sense of humour and appreciation of beauty despite the comparative lack of freedom - this is real contemporary Iran. *Shortlisted for the Adventure Travel Book of the Year Award* 'Within a few pages I'd recognised a kindred spirit' - Dervla Murphy, author of Full Tilt

East From Frisco On The Trail Of America S Soul

This work is not 'just another travelog' ' it is a light-hearted blend of observation, anecdote, humour and history. The book was inspired by a USA coast-to-coast expedition from San Francisco to Washington DC to raise funds for charity (Motor Neurone Disease), undertaken for much of the way in a 30-year-old open top 'classic' car along the historic Route 66. Little escapes critique ' from cow-chip throwing to IndyCar racing; from poker running to the deeply ingrained religiosity of the American people. The story ranges from the sparkling waters of San Francisco Bay, via Amarillo in the Texas panhandle, to shipwreck in the pounding Atlantic surf off Cape Hatteras. The quirks and idiosyncrasies of people and places, and the tragedies and triumphs of American history, are all sympathetically portrayed through the pen of a visitor from Europe. The style is the author's own ' although he likes to think it is inspired by the best of Bryson, RL Stevenson and JK Jerome. Enjoy!
