A vibrant addition to the 'seaside living' book tradition, Beachside Bohemian injects life into this perennial category through its celebrated authors, design duo Robert and Cortney Novogratz. Known for combining bohemian chic style and family living, the couple serve up fun and practical design and lifestyle tips through their vacation house on the Brazilian coast. Ten years ago, the Novogratzes bought a modest house in disrepair in Trancoso, Brazil, long before the rest of the world had discovered the peaceful beach outpost. This gorgeous book chronicles the transformation of the unremarkable cottage into a beloved family retreat in the glorious tropical environment of coastal Brazil that perfectly fits their lifestyle, where outside living is as important as interior.

My friend, a pseudo-intellectual like so many of us out here, once told me that culture, class and sophistication are concepts that are for everyone to grasp and not only meant for the rich people to enjoy. If any person should think that cultural likings, can’t give to him or her an international type of robust living, it is because that person has decided to stay introverted by choice, rather than circumstance. If humanity doesn’t destroy the ecospheres or plunges itself into a nuclear war, the end of our basic existence will become phenomenal with impersonal technology. As it is the children of today seldom climb a tree to look into the nest of an amazing bird and for that we can only imagine what will be of the children living one thousand years from now? I have written them a letter in hope that the life sustaining properties of our planet Earth are still there for them to use and get to also enjoy the sun being born out of the Caribbean Sea. We should consider ourselves bless for having nature be so nice, to you and I, till this day already gone by.

When leftist revolutionary Sergio's sniper shot misses the President of Venezuela, he's thrown into a sudden tailspin. As he attempts to escape the increasingly militarized regime, he winds up taking residence in a bohemian beachside commune, where he keeps a low profile until Lourdes, his former comrade, the object of his desire, and his possible betrayer, turns up one evening. Pursued by their former trainer in guerrilla warfare on the orders of the newly appointed Minister of the Interior, the two team up with unlikely partners to hatch a new plan for their survival. This poetic thriller, the second in Phoneme Media's City of Asylum imprint, challenges the origin myth of South America's radical left, resulting in its author's exile from Venezuela.

In early twentieth-century America, affluent city-dwellers made a habit of venturing out of doors and vacationing in resorts and national parks. Yet the rich and the privileged were not the only ones who sought respite in nature. In this pathbreaking book, historian Colin Fisher demonstrates that working-class white immigrants and African Americans in rapidly industrializing Chicago also fled the urban environment during their scarce leisure time. If they had the means, they traveled to wilderness parks just past the city limits as well as to rural resorts in Wisconsin and Michigan. But lacking time and money, they most often sought out nature within the city itself--at urban parks and commercial groves, along the Lake Michigan shore, even in vacant lots. Chicagoans enjoyed a variety of outdoor recreational activities in these green spaces, and they used them to forge ethnic and working-class community. While narrating a crucial era in the history of Chicago's urban development, Fisher makes important interventions in debates about working-class leisure, the history of urban parks, environmental justice, the African American experience, immigration history, and the cultural history of nature.

THE ULTIMATE HOSTILE TAKEOVER A visitor from beyond the solar system is planet shopping. A member of a dying species, he is looking for new real estate to annex. He finds it on planet earth. PLANET FOR SALE A genius at economics, he devises a plan to take over the planet without a single shot being fired. By masterfully manipulating a political and economic climate characterized by relaxed standards and minimal oversight, he surreptitiously succeeds in building a vast financial empire that transcends national boundaries and grows to encompass the balance of the world's vulnerable energy resources. Now he is only a couple of acquisitions away from checkmate in a game that must spell doom for humanity. At ground zero the task of preventing the total annihilation of the human species falls to two unlikely people-an entertainer and a recovering vampiress. The entertainer is none other than the King himself, Elvis Presley who, contrary to common belief, is alive and well and currently living incognito on the Big Island of Hawaii. The vampire is his sultry and mysterious longtime girlfriend, Desdemona. Together they are headed for a showdown with a formidable, soulless menace in the city that never sleeps. And the stakes could scarcely be higher .

From original beachcomber personalities like the Waikiki Beachboys to the rise of Venice Beach as a creative center for music, art, and film, Pop Surf Culture traces the roots of the surf boom and explores its connection to the Beat Generation and 1960s pop culture. Through accounts of key figures both obscure and popular, the book illustrates why surf culture is a vital art movement of the 20th century. Pop Surf Culture includes essays about the popular "beach" movies of the 1950s and '60s, which featured such stars as Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon and the music of Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, Brian Wilson, the Pyramids, Gary Usher, James Brown, and Little Stevie Wonder. Sixties art figures Michael Dormer and Rick Griffin--as well as the surf magazines which promoted their art--are featured alongside the progenitors of "surf music," from the little known (the Centurians) to the wildly popular (the Beach Boys). Duke Kahanamoku, the Gas House, Gidget, surfing on television, the bohemian surf aesthetic, surf music hot spots, Mickey "Da Cat" Dora . . . the entire spectrum of pop surf culture is covered within these colorfully illustrated pages.
