  • Bohemiansby Elizabeth Wilson

    I.B.Tauris 2000; US$ 14.95

    Since the early nineteenth century, the bohemian has been the hero of the story the West has wanted to hear about its artists: a story of genius, glamour and doom.

    I.B.Tauris 2005; US$ 14.95

    Despite its recent upheavals, for most of the twentieth century Afghanistan was a sleepy, faraway place of little interest to outsiders.
