Books Info:

The City at Three P.M. free pdf In The City at Three PM, award-winning fiction writer Peter LaSalle offers 11 startlingly original personal essays dealing with his longtime quest for world travel. These literary errands range from driving recklessly across the county to seek out Saul Bellow in Chicago to settling in for long evenings at a pub in Dublin with Christy Brown, the celebrated Irish author afflicted with cerebral palsy who typed with his toes. In Buenos Aires LaSalle senses metaphysical transport while investigating Borges' work- in Cameroon he attends the wonderful opening of a small bookstore- in Hollywood he finds himself caught in a crazy mob scene while researching the work of 1930s master American novelist and screenwriter Nathanael West- in Tunisia he follows in the footsteps of Flaubert at the ruins of ancient Carthage. And those are just some of the adventures. Having first appeared in distinguished publications here and abroad, including The Best American Travel Writing, these are beautifully crafted pieces, heartfelt, honest, observant, and often moving toward genuine transcendence. Overall they conjure up those fine moments when travel intersects with the important role of literature in our lives, in this case yielding writing entirely unique and satisfying.
