Just the Thing: Books to go with those travel accessories
In between pit stops, the jet-setting travel bug on your list can kick back with these two travel-inspired book picks. Pack these with those travel accessories or that ticket to Cuba you’re generously gifting, and your loved one will be sending you postcards from all of their destinations.
From now until Dec 7, we’ve got 20 books that are Just the Thing to round out your gifts.Angela of the Stones by Amanda Hale (Thistledown Press) If your #wanderlust giftee’s Instagram photos are of the beach-bumming and backpack-toting variety, Amanda Hale’s Angela of the Stones will give their wayfaring feet a quick rest in between adventuring. In this short story collection, Hale brings to life a Cuba that tourists don’t always see with a dash of humour and rich descriptions of characters struggling with the political changes reshaping the country.
The Philistine by Leila Marshy (Linda Leith Publishing)Whether armchair travelling or jetsetting, Leila Marshy’s The Philistine will be just the ticket your adventurer is after. In this page-turning novel, protagonist Nadia sets off to Cairo to find her father and instead discovers her sexuality, shedding everything she thought she knew about herself in a debut novel that Ann-Marie MacDonald says “spans—and transgresses—sexuality, culture and countries.” How’s that for travelling to find yourself?* * *
Remember: we’ll pack you a set of our holiday gift cards for FREE when you purchase either (or both!) of these books until Dec 20th. Not seeing what you need yet? Check out more #ALUJTT picks until Dec 7th.
