house3Kindly contributed by travel writer Frank Bures, whose new book The Geography of Madness explores the phenomenon of culture-bound syndromes across the globe, from a community of men in Nigeria to believe their penises have been stolen to China, Singapore, Borneo and beyond. His quest: to understand "how our ideas can kill us, how our beliefs can save us and how these things quietly determine the course of our lives."

Kindly contributed by Margaret Eby. In her inspired new book South Toward Home, Eby explores the haunts of the Deep South literary giants, peeking into liquor cabinets, digging into literature-inspiring cuisine and visiting Mississippi, Alabama and Georgia. Her journeys focus on enduring writers William Faulkner, Eudora Welty, Richard Wright, Barry Hannah, Harper Lee, Truman Capote, Harry Crews and Flannery O'Connor, and her prose will inspire many a literary pilgrim to journey to their own favorite literary spot.
