message 5: by Henryetta (new)

Henryetta I am afraid that some of the books listed do not provide a slice of "contemporary life". I had voted for several others but deleted them because they were not set in the last 25 years. Example: "The Good Earth & "The Book Thief"
Am I right?


message 6: by Meaghan (new)

Meaghan You may have a point there.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

What country does The Lovely Bones visit except the US and I don't recall much about travel. Did I miss something?


message 8: by Meaghan (new)

Meaghan Heaven, perhaps?

That is what I wondered about! LOL! That would certainly be foreign travel.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Are they only supposed to be contemporary? I voted for a ton of stuff I just thought fit into cultures and countries outside our own but didn't stick to any kinda timeline...


message 11: by Tima (new)

Tima I feel like the same rotating 5-10 books are the top of every single list on Goodreads, no matter the topic =S sigh!

Mirta Trupp With Love, The Argentina Family: Memories of Tango and Kugel; Mate with Knishes

I've written this Creative Non Fiction that introduces the reader to a Jewish family of Russian descent immigrating to the US from Argentina. As one of my Amazon reviewers stated, "I really enjoyed the spirited journey of the author as she explores her cultural transition from Argentina to the sunny shores of California. It is rich and flavorful with the innocence of youth, the understanding and perspective that comes with age and exploration. Written in an easy to read format, it is satisfying on many levels; cultural, religious, family, generational and genealogical all at once. I love her visits back to Argentina and the "coming home" to California experience. I want a sequel to be written!"

I know, what's the difference between China and Ireland and Egypt and Canada anyway? =/

The description says, "This list contains books which provide insight into life within other countries and cultures outside of the USA."

So, no.

I'll find (or create) a "Strange, faraway culture" list then which is exclusively for US books... :D


message 19: by David (new)

David James I'd add "Days and Nights on the Grand Trunk Road" by Anthony Weller to the list. One of the best travel books I've read. It's a bit dated now but I covered roughly the same ground in India as he did during roughly the same period and Weller brought it all back for me. He went on into Pakistan, which I didn't (I opted for Nepal instead). This was when the Taliban was just taking hold of Afghanistan, part of why he halted at Khyber Pass. Weller combined personal observations and encounters, history, cultural explorations, and what were then current events in the region. I agree with one of the reviewers; you feel like you're right there in the car with him. This book received nowhere near the attention it deserved.

Sounds great! So why don't you add it? Anyone can add books to this list.
