 “The Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan England” and more

Beautiful to look at, fascinating to read, a book that belongs in your library, “The Time Traveler’s Guide to Elizabethan England” by Ian Mortimer (Viking, $27.95, 303 pages) is an impeccably assembled bit of research. Organized as a travel guide for the time-hopping tourist,  Mortimer places us in a time machine taking us back to 16th century England.

Painting pictures with words the celebrated author has produced something for everyone -  a cavalcade of sounds, sights, aromas, events - -all served up through diaries, letters, books and other writing of the time. It was a time where one was lucky to live to the age of 30, a time of discovery, a time of some of the greatest writing ever produced. This book is HIGHLY NOTABLE

“An Army of Frogs” by Trevor Pryce (Amulet, $15.95, 276 pages) has the right price and the right stuff. Written by a man who distinguished himself in a stellar 14 year NFL career, Pryce shows off his multi-talents in this brilliant new adventure book focused on a loyal nation of fogs doing the right thing. This is much more than a children’s book even though it is that.

MUST READ.

Coming in September from Bloomsbury Press is THE TRAGEDY OF LIBERATION, a history of the Chinese revolution by Frank Dikotter.
