Travelling in Different Skins explores the ways in which travel creates gender trouble and motion destabilises identity. Through close readings of European women's Oriental travelogues from 1850-1950, including Olympe Audouard, Isabella Bird, Jane Dieulafoy and Freya Stark, the book shows how the 'perfect woman' is rewritten in the Other space of the Orient. As these women negotiate their way through the traditionally male arenas of colonialism,Orientalism and the adventure genre, they send home distorted, disturbing, appealing visions of modern female identity. Combining travel, post-colonial and gender theory, the book demonstrates howrather than domestic, localised contentment, women travellers in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries explore cross-dressing, commerciality and performance. At the risk of going too far, becoming subject to social exclusion, they push out the physical, textual and geographical parameters by which women are defined. This monograph elaborates a new paradigm for considering women's travel writing, vagabondage, the endless, aching search for identity through motion.

A new series debut from Odelia Grey mystery author Sue Ann Jaffarian! Granny was famous for her award-winning apple pies-and notorious for murdering her husband Jacob at their homestead in Julian, California. The only trouble is, Granny was framed, then murdered. For more than one hundred years, Granny's spirit has been searching for someone to help her see that justice is served—and she hits pay dirt when she pops in to a séance attended by her great-great-great-granddaughter, modern-day divorced mom Emma Whitecastle. Together, Emma and Granny Apples solve mysteries of the past—starting with Granny's own unjust murder rap in the final days of the California Gold Rush. Along with a sprinkling of history, this spirited new mystery series features the amateur sleuth team of Emma Whitecastle and the spirit of her pie-baking great-great-great-grandmother, Granny Apples. "A charming tale, as appealing as apple pie. I predict a long life (and afterlife) for Sue Ann's latest series."—Harley Jane Kozak, Agatha, Anthony, and Macavity award-winning author of Dating Dead Men "Take colorful characters in a charming setting, mix in a dash of romance, add a pinch of the paranormal, and serve it up like one of Granny's famous pies. I guarantee you'll be back for seconds." —Deborah Sharp, author of Mama Rides Shotgun "Jaffarian has done a nifty job of incorporating Julian's history into her tale of unresolved ghosts, uncanny psychics, unsolved murders and unhappy divorcees, while handily introducing some characters, alive and dead, to carry the series forward." --North County Times "A delectable first in a new paranormal cozy series from Sue Ann Jaffarian." —Publishers Weekly "A fun new series. Ghostly puzzles are one of the trendy new themes in cozy mysteries, and this is a good one." —Booklist "Emma handles her 'gift' of seeing the dead with aplomb, and class. I'll look forward to seeing where the sequel will take Emma and Granny." --Deadly Pleasures
