Scratching the Surface

PDF EBook by Jeff Greenwald

EBook Description

Jeff Greenwald's four previous books, including his best- PDFselling "Shopping for Buddhas" and "The Size of the World," have taken thousands of readers on journeys from the ruins of Angkor to the California Lottery's "Big Spin": voyages at once sublime and provocative, spiritual and absurd. Scratching the Surface PDF EBookAfter more delays than the Mumbai-Chennai Express, Jeff"s latest offering — "Scratching the Surface: Impressions of Planet Earth, from Hollywood to Shiraz" — is finally available, as a limited edition paperback. Here is the best of Greenwald's 20-year travel writing career, hand-picked from two decades of open-eyed dispatches. Spanning oceans, continents, and the quantum leap from the Smith-Corona to the Cybercafé download; , these stories provide an illuminating, often hilarious view of our rapidly evolving world.

The thirty-one tales in "Scratching the Surface" span the globe, from the jungles of Nepal to a solar eclipse in the skies above Iran; from an "electric bath" in Tokyo to moonwalker Buzz Aldrin's Beverly Hills flat. Nearly all of these stories have previously appeared in print, but most will be unfamiliar to even his most loyal fans.
