East of Eden by John Steinbeck
 
Available Now @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe, #Pattaya....
 
Set in the rich farmland of California’s Salinas Valley, this sprawling and often brutal novel follows the intertwined destinies of two families, the Trasks and the Hamiltons,
whose generations helplessly reenact the fall of Adam and Eve and the poisonous rivalry of Cain and Abel.
Here Steinbeck created some of his most memorable characters and explored his most enduring themes, the mystery of identity; the applicability of love and the murderous consequences of love’s absence.

MAFIA THE BEGINNING By Enrico Rick Monte.
 
Traded In recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop *-* Book exchange #Pattaya #Thailand...*****Signed by the Author*****
 
The Story and History of the first Sicilian Mafia Family, from Ancient Roman to the Present.
I chose nothing in life.
I was born and this is what I am.
Mafia.
Destina Del Fortuna, the Fortunes of Destine
My name is Enrico Salvatore Pompeii Stromboli III.
My family is the original and oldest Mafia family in the world. This is, in part, about the origins of the Mafia and a secret brotherhood within the Mafia, my family and being “in the life,” a term used to describe the Mafia.
 
Detail for the first time, the true origins of the organization that originally had no name, whose existence was only spoken about in murmurs and whispers, whose members did not need to abide by some contrived “code” of silence.
To belong to the brotherhood is sacrosanct and men would rather die, than utter a mere word of the group’s existence. Silence is not a code; it is a way of life.

Bogarde, poet, autobiographer and novelist, began his acting career on the stage.

The Holy Land, 1291.
A war has been raging across these bleak lands for decades.

One city which must be defended at all costs.
 
That city is Acre.

Green and scared, he has never seen battle before.
But he is on the run from a dark past and he has no choice but to stay, to stay means to fight.
 
That boy is Baldwin de Furnshill.
 
This is the story of the siege of Acre, and of the moment Baldwin first charged into battle.
This is just the beginning.
 
The rest is history.

State of Denial by Bob Woodward
 
Traded In recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, #Pattaya...
 
"Insurgents and terrorists retain the resources and capabilities to sustain and even increase current level of violence through the next year."
This was the secret Pentagon assessment sent to the White House in May 2006.
The forecast of a more violent 2007 in Iraq contradicted the repeated optimistic statements of President Bush, including one, two days earlier, when he said we were at a "turning point" that history would mark as the time "the forces of terror began their long retreat."

The Road to McCarthy: Around the World in Search of Ireland
by Pete McCarthy.
 
Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe, #Pattaya.
 
Pete McCarthy established one cardinal rule of travel in his bestselling debut, McCarthy's Bar - "Never pass a bar with your name on it."
In this equally wry, funny and insightful follow up,his characteristic good humor, curiosity, and thirst for adventure take him on a fantastic jaunt around the world in search of his Irish roots, from Morocco, where he tracks down the unlikely chief of the McCarthy clan, to the Bronx, New York, and finally to remote Mc-Carthy, Alaska.
The Road to McCarthy is a quixotic and anything but typical Irish odyssey that confirms Pete McCarthy's status as one of our funniest and most incisive writers in the business.
