Description

Thirteen stories are gathered here, and in them Manuel Tiago rises to his most lyrical in his descriptions of nature and landscape and to his most humorous as he regales his readers with tales of amusing contretemps, mixed signals, false identities, linguistic mistakes, and narrow, fortuitous escapes.

In these fictional accounts of crossing borders, the reader will visit foreign cities, see brilliant visions and landscapes, sail the oceans, scale mountains, board ocean liners, trains and planes, communicate in a number of foreign languages, and engage in a kind of political tourism, meeting helpful comrades all along the way.
