5 Titles for 5 Destinations

Because in the suitcase there is always room for a book, no matter how full it is. How many times the turning of the pages has pushed us like a hurricane wind to faraway places and strange situations. How many times have we smiled as we made ourselves comfortable to finish that chapter that left us on tenterhooks. NUBA has searched through its shelves for those titles that made us travel…

The snowman. The Red Winter by Jo Nesbø, Norway

A serial killer who drives the whole country crazy, a lurking and deadly winter and a hidden reflection of Norwegian culture. Jo Nesbø has been during the last years a revelation author in crime novels and mystery thrillers. A native of Oslo, the descriptions of the white-tinged environment and the personalities of his compatriots have an almost portrait-like accuracy. An entertaining way to get closer to this Scandinavian giant.

Silence. A Shout by Shüsaku Endō, Japan

Popularized by the movie with which it shares its name and plot. Endō manages to show a Japan behind closed doors, which wanted nothing to do with foreigners and was breaking down trying to keep its soul intact. The most mysterious era of the islands is presented in less than 300 pages along with a reflection on the religiosity of the human being.

Tokyo Japan

The Gospel according to Jesus Christ. Forgive me Saramago, for I have sinned, Israel

We will say little about this master. Saramago portrayed, with his peculiar style and his biting and intelligent pen, the best known story of all times. The landscapes and places of the Holy Land that the “son of God” travels through in his comings and goings as Messiah are almost one more character (a very important one) in this brilliant critique.

Jerusalem churches and mosques

Ebony. Ryszard Kapucinsky, Tanzania

We couldn’t start with anyone else. The Polish writer spent decades traveling the African continent and captured in his texts its essence, the beauty of its nature and its people. Tanzania is one of the many countries that are mentioned and whose tragic past and hopeful future are discussed. The perfect book to open for the first time on a rattan throne with the African dawn illuminating it.

Love in the time of cholera. Enamorados de García Márquez, Mexico

We couldn’t start with anyone else. The Polish writer spent decades traveling the African continent and captured in his texts its essence, the beauty of its nature and its people. Tanzania is one of the many countries that are mentioned and whose tragic past and hopeful future are discussed. The perfect book to open for the first time on a rattan throne with the African dawn illuminating it.

Colorful streets in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia

Forget compasses, maps and comprehensive tourist guides. Books are the new must-haves on any trip. For new destinations to plot on the next page of your personal book, contact your NUBA designer.
