"Harrowing, tender-hearted, and funny as hell" —Jenny Offill “Fascinating…Oddly uplifting” —The Economist "Smart, funny, irreverent, and philosophically rich" —Wall Street Journal By the author of the award-winning To Be a Machine, an absorbing, deeply felt book about our anxious present tense—and coming to grips with the future We're alive in a time of worst-case scenarios: The weather has gone uncanny. Old postwar alliances are crumbling. A pandemic draws our global community to a halt. Everywhere you look there's an omen, a joke whose punchline is the end of the world. How is a person supposed to live in the shadow of such a grim future? What does it mean to have children—nothing if not an act of hope—in such unsettled times? What might it be like to live through the worst? And what on Earth is anybody doing about it? Dublin-based writer Mark O'Connell is consumed by these questions—and, as the father of two young children himself, he finds them increasingly urgent. In Notes from an Apocalypse, he crosses the globe in pursuit of answers. He tours survival bunkers in South Dakota. He ventures to New Zealand, a favored retreat of billionaires banking on civilization's collapse. He engages with would-be Mars colonists, preppers, right-wing conspiracists. And he bears witness to those places, like Chernobyl, that the future has already visited—real-life portraits of the end of the world as we know it. In doing so, he comes to a resolution, while offering readers a unique window into our contemporary imagination. Both investigative and deeply personal, Notes from an Apocalypse is an affecting, humorous, and surprisingly hopeful meditation on our present moment. With insight, humanity, and wit, O'Connell leaves you to wonder: What if the end of the world isn't the end of the world?

In Journey to the End of Islam, Michael Muhammad Knight — whose work has led to him being hailed as both the Jack Kerouac and Hunter S. Thompson of American Islam — wanders through Muslim countries, navigating between conflicting visions of his religion. Visiting holy sites in Pakistan, Syria, Egypt, and Ethiopia, Knight engages both the puritanical Islam promoted by Saudi globalization and the heretical strands of popular folk Islam: shrines, magic, music, and drugs. The conflict of “global” and “local” Islam speaks to Knight’s own experience approaching the Islamic world as a uniquely American Muslim with his own sources: the modern mythologies of the Nation of Islam and Five Percenters, as well as the arguments of Progressive Muslim thinkers for feminism and reform. Knight’s travels conclude at Islam’s spiritual center, the holy city of Mecca, where he performs the hajj required of every Muslim. During the rites of pilgrimage, he watches as all variations of Islam converge in one place, under the supervision of Saudi Arabia’s religious police. What results is a struggle to separate the spiritual from the political, Knight searching for a personal relationship to Islam in the context of how it's defined by the external world.

In this intrepid and humorous travelogue, Carlo Pizzati embarks on a quest to find a cure for a backache that has tortured him for twenty years. Armed with his notebook and an indomitable spirit of adventure, Carlo travels from a posturologist's office in northern Italy to the rarefied mountain air of Boulder to seek a variety of New Age alternative cures; from a trance-dance venue hidden near the woods of Cinque Terre to an exorcist-shaman's den near Buenos Aires, who photographs demons and auras. Eventually, Carlo fetches up in India, to live and learn from the yogis at the Ashtanga yoga centre in Mysore. In India, as Carlo engages in strenuous yogic discipline, meditates atop hills, he has an explosive insight into his past births which leads to an encounter that will change his life forever. Along the way, our sceptical, suffering but always curious narrator discovers the ways in which spirituality and technology intersect. Wry, witty and wise by turns, this is a book about self-discovery, facing fears and failures, and undertaking an arduous journey with an open mind and heart.

In October 2008 Annah Lansdown and Andy Park set out to explore South America. In this chronicle of backpacking adventure, the travel-savvy couple bus it for four months through Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, and the southern-most regions "at the end of the world". Without an itinerary or pre-arranged bookings, Annah and Andy manage to luck-it-out most of the time, but South America has plenty to throw at them. Be it midnight landslides, 11 day strandings, or near capsizes in the Beagle Channel (and much else besides), they take it all in their stride. But more than anything, this is a photographic essay about travel through some of the most spectacular and iconic places in the world - the Galapagos Islands, the Nazca Lines, Machu Picchu, Lake Titicaca, La Paz, the Amazon, Salar de Uyuni, Los Glaciares National Park, Ushuaia ("world's end"), Tierra del Fuego National Park, Buenos Aires, Iguazu Falls, the Jesuit mission ruins in Paraguay - and everywhere in between."We left at dawn, and headed out onto the salt flats of Uyuni. All the recent rain had turned it into a perfect mirror, as far as the eye could see. It was the most amazing thing that I have ever seen". That's high praise indeed from a veteran backpacker of over 50 countries.

Technoshamans is a humorous, illuminating narrative non-fiction book in which the author roams the world searching for places where technology and spirituality intersect. The driving force of the book is the narrators quest for relief for a bad back which has tortured him for twenty years. Armed with his notebook and an open heart and mind, Carlo Pizzati embarks on a spiritual and medical quest taking him from a medical office in Northern Italy, where a posturologist glues tiny white dots to his front teeth, to the mountains of Boulder, Colorado, where he tries Rolfing massage and yoga. From there, its only a hop and a skip to California, where he is hooked up to the cutting-edge of computer diagnostics: a fancy high-tech toy which uses tiny energy pulses to read his orthopedic problem. The diagnosis, fittingly for California, is a karmic social crime committed in 1685 by a prior incarnation. Thus begins the second movement of Technoshamans. He flies back to the mountains above Portofino to attend several trance music raves designed to induce visions through electronic music. In Argentina, he experiences the famed indigenous shamans, but also aura-photographing computers and miscellaneous high-tech channeling gadgets. No mystical question would be complete without a passage to India. Whether hes in an ashram in Tamil Nadu, practicing Ashtanga in Mysore, meeting the Big Enema ayurvedic doctor in Kovalam or chanting mantras at dusk, or on the beaches of the experimental township of Auroville, being led through a tearful, explosive revelation about his past lives, he continues to dwell on his fundamental themes: Can spirituality coexist with the Machine? Are we going to download ourselves into androids? Will spirituality and technology do away with humanity? Technoshamans, through a compelling and closely observed first person narration, asks these questions and more.

For the Chinese, the Great Wall of China has defined much more than a physical barrier. Over the centuries it has represented a psychological frontier--within it lay the Celestial Kingdom, the compass of all civilization. Beyond lay a barbarian world of chaos and exile. Chinese journeys to the west along the ancient Silk Road were passages into the unknown, often into legend. Following in their wake, Stanley Stewart recounts his wanderings halfway across Asia in Frontiers of Heaven, his Thomas Cook Travel Book of the Year Award-winning account. The journey took him from Shanghai to the banks of the Indus, and along the way he encountered the modern Chinese for whom these regions beyond the Wall still hold the same morbid fascination. Today, the great western province of Xinjiang is still a land of exile, the destination of soldiers, reluctant settlers, political prisoners, and disgraced officials. Whether describing the lost cities of Central Asia, a Buddhist monastery in the shadow of Tibet, a Kirghiz wedding on the roof of the world, ballroom dancing in the Mountains of Heaven, an escape from the secret police in Kashgar, or a love affair in Xi''an, Stewart tells his story with wit, charm, and affection. In a book packed with character and incident, Stewart explores the paradoxes of travel, the lure of far horizons, and the isolation of exile.
