    Paul Bowles began travelling the moment he could — leaving America as a teenager to visit Gertrude Stein in Paris. He settled in Morocco after the war, and for thirty years travelled in North Africa, Central America, Southeast Asia, Indian and Sri Lanka (where he bought an island). He wrote articles, essays and journals along the way — writing which ranks with his novels in its astute observation, dry wit and impeccable prose. Travels brings together for the first time Paul Bowles's travel writing and journals. It includes the full text of his book Their Heads Are Green

    We all know the phrase "the past is a foreign country", but what if instead of looking back to a time when we were younger, we looked back to a time when we were older! The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald is a strange tale. Benjamin Button is born as an old man, and dies as a baby — his life is lived in reverse. Emerging from the cradle smoking a pipe and reading encyclopaedias, Benjamin settles down to playing with toys in old age. Don't worry if you've seen the film with Brad Pitt — the book is nothing like it!
