Paperback. £ Photographing Scotland: A photo-location and visitor guidebook/5(20). A fear of water has kept Elspeth Dunn on the Isle of Skye for all of her 24 years. Yet her poetry has traveled far, even to the bedside of David Graham, an American college student whose spirited shenanigans have landed him in the hospital with a broken leg. He writes her a fan letter, she responds, and an epistolary affair ensues.

Cathy Wurzer, one of Minnesota’s most respected journalists, takes you on a wondrous journey of Minnesota’s historic and iconic Highway 61 in her award winning book and film. Made famous by the legendary singer Bob Dylan, Highway 61 winds its way from near the Canadian border to the southeastern corner of Minnesota.   Skye – now mother to five-year-old Aeneas – divides her time between her stylish flat in South London and the family home in Venice with its crumbling plaster walls and watermelon-green shutters. Her new book, A Table in Venice: Recipes From My Home, is filled with the food she loves and remembers growing up.
