Travel

Tony Cohan's indelible vision of a seductive, enticing and intoxicating world in ON MEXICAN TIME, his bestselling chronicle of discovering a new life in the tiny mountain town of San Miguel de Allende, become a travel classic. In MEXICAN DAYS point of arrival becomes point of departure as - faced with the invasion of the town by tourists and an entire Hollywood movie crew, a magazine editor's irresistible invitation and his own incurable wanderlust - he undertakes a much deeper exploration of his adopted country. Set against the backdrop of a changing world, he explores a Mexico both old and new: among the misty mountains and coastal Caribbean towns of Veracruz; the ruins and resorts of Yucat n; the stirring indigenous world of Chiapas; the colourful markets of Oaxaca; the teeming labyrinth of Mexico City; the surrealist gardens at Xilitla in the remote Sierra Gorda mountains; the haunted city of Guanajuato; and the evocative Mayan ruins of Palenque. Along the way he encounters expatriates and artists, shady operatives, surrealists and figures from his past. A celebration of the joys and revelations to be found in this seductive and mysterious land, MEXICAN DAYS is an intimate exploration of the heart of ancient and contemporary Mexico by a writer at the height of his powers.
