A Stranger City

Linda Grant
Authors:
Linda Grant

When a dead body is found in the Thames, caught in the chains of HMS Belfast, it begins a search for a missing woman and confirms a sense that in London a person can become invisible once outside their community - and that assumes they even have a community. A policeman,a documentary film maker and an Irish nurse named Chrissie all respond to the death of the unknown woman in their own ways. London is a place of random meetings, shifting relationships - and some, like Chrissie intersect with many. The filmmaker and the policeman meanwhile have safe homes with wives - or do they? An immigrant family speaks their own language only privately; they have managed to integrate - or have they? The wonderful Linda Grant weaves a tale around ideas of home; how London can be a place of exile or expulsion, how home can be a physical place or an idea. How all our lives intersect and how coincidence or the randomness of birth place can decide how we live and with whom.

Elizabeth Linhart Veneman

Elizabeth Linhart Veneman has always viewed growing up in Northern California as both a blessing and curse. There is so much to see, do, and experience all within a short drive-from broad sequoias in the Sierras to ancient lava beds north of Mount Shasta, from creaky Gold Rush towns to the pampering Wine Country-that she began to wonder why anyone would ever leave.Elizabeth was eventually lured out of the Golden State to Alaska's far north, where she traveled the Inside Passage, baked bread under the midnight sun in Denali National Park, and chronicled the state's burgeoning sustainable agriculture for Alaska Magazine. These adventures culminated in penning the travel guide InsightGuides: Alaska.But Elizabeth knew her California roots were too deep to stay away for long. Raised in Carmel, where her great-great grandmother opened the first restaurant (a soup kitchen with dirt floors!) at the turn of the 20th century, she would always call California home. So she returned and devoted herself to writing about the state she loves most. Her work has included the travel guides SmartGuide: San Francisco and InsightGuides: San Francisco, as well as reporting on food and sustainable agriculture for local publications.Elizabeth is still enchanted by Northern California's wondrous melding of natural splendor with cultural charm. She currently lives with her family in San Francisco's Richmond district.

Joel Serra

Joel Serra Bevin, also known as Papa Serra Junior, was born in New Zealand and grew up in Tasmania. Even there, off the south coast of mainland Australia, Joel's Spanish heritage found a way into his life, through his stomach, naturally. He passed eight years working as a suit and tie in Melbourne, while on the weekend he would run a supper club out of his apartment. He also enjoyed fifteen minutes of fame on Masterchef Australia. Realising he preferred cracking nuts to crunching numbers, Joel left life as a consultant and moved to Barcelona where it was a case of love at first bite. Joel's passion for Spanish food and culture was inevitable - it was in his genes. Papa Serra, his Catalan great-grandfather was no chef, but inspired Joel to return in 2012 where he founded Papa Serra Culinary Adventures for the epicurean traveler, with whom he shared his intoxicating love for Spanish food and cooking. Having grown up in a multicultrual house, and country, Joel brings a fresh global approach to traditional Spanish dishes. Outside of the kitchen Joel spends his time outdoors and his cooking style naturally incorporates this healthy lifestyle. Not able to boast of even one tattoo, Joel lives clean and cooks clean but will happily admit that the kitchen raised him. He is obsessed with new flavour combinations, unusual preparations and creating magic for whoever else joins him around the table.
