Against all the best advice from family and friends, writer Richard Loseby decides to return to Afghanistan at a time of turmoil in the Middle East to discover the fate of his friend Nebi, the young Hezbollah mujahed who had saved his life long ago. This is a story that comes along only once in a lifetime. It is about discovering what really matters in life. Told with insight and humour, and treading pathways few would dare to travel, Loseby takes us on a magical journey of the heart that grips the reader at every twist and turn. Part travelogue, part personal quest, and part mystery, Richard Loseby again reveals his brilliance as a writer, storyteller and photographer.This is the sequel to the best-selling Blue is the Colour of Heaven.
Zoroaster's Children brings together the best of Marius Kociejowski's travel writing. A companion volume to last year's critically acclaimed The Pebble Chance, these essays, conceived somewhere between "a waning moon and the nerves behind a flayed man's face," evince the deep absorption in a people and place which are the hallmark of great travel writers.
Marius Kociejowski is the award-winning author of four collections of poetry, two celebrated travel memoirs, and a collection of his best essays, The Pebble Chance. He lives and works as a bookseller in London, England.
