Basket weave like a Botswana. Take a ride in a Malian bush taxi. Bargain at a Nigerian marketplace. Play an El Salvadorian marbles game. Come see how people in other countries live through performances and presentations from many cultures by Peace Corps members.

It all started with Richard Lloyd Parry’s The People Who Eat Darkness. Parry, as a foreign correspondent for the London Times, gives a thorough account about the disappearance of a British National in the famous pleasure district of Japan: Roppongi. He weaves the main narrative with facts about post-war Japan and the modern Japanese criminal system. But, through it all, the focus was on the 20 year-old girl who vanished without a trace. I wanted to know more and read more about Westerns in Asia. How would you adjust? What would it be like to be so far from home in a completely foreign land?

Through RCPL’s Request for Purchase service, I’ve recently requested several beautiful new books for our collection, after I saw reviews either in a magazine, journal, or on Amazon. My most recent orders, Litchfield Style, The Irish Country House, and England’s Hideaways, have just arrived. Full of color and ideas, these books are “eye candy” for us home and garden lovers.
