All Kinds of Magic One Man's Search for Meaning Across the Modern World

by Piers Moore Ede

All Kinds of Magic One Man's Search for Meaning Across the Modern World Synopsis

This is the story of a man who embarked on a quest that many of us have dreamed about. Disillusioned by a world hooked on material wealth and scientific fact, he decided to travel across the globe in search of something more meaningful: the magical, the mystical. His journey takes him from snow-blanketed villages in the Himalayas to tiny, covert communities of whirling dervishes in rural Turkey; from the world's largest religious festival on the banks of the swollen Ganges to a dappled, ancient Sufi quarter in Delhi. Lyrical and clear-sighted, All Kinds of Magic is a fascinating exploration of the hidden world of miracles that is at once deeply personal and universal in its scope.

All Kinds of Magic One Man's Search for Meaning Across the Modern World Press Reviews

`So sincere and carefully told that the result cannot help but move' * Financial Times * `Terrific ... Unpretentious, often funny, but also powerfully expressive of experiences beyond language and reason, it's a book which rises to the challenge of its subject with skill and considerable grace' * Wanderlust * `Energetic and compelling' * Guardian * `A wild pilgrimage across the mystic world, taken in order to embark on the shortest and hardest journey of all - the almost impossible one from the head to the heart. Piers Moore Ede is both an elegant and courageous traveller and teller of this rite of passage' * Justine Hardy *
