STEEL DOGS tells the hilarious but somewhat unbelievable true story of a business deal in China gone totally wrong. This action-packed tale follows Chris and Matthew Bracey (of London’s renowned God’s Own Junkyard Neon Museum) on a farcical and disturbing journey to bag a million quid. As the day of the deal approaches and the deal commences, everything that can go wrong, goes wrong. This is bad luck at its worst. The humiliating truth of what went on in China, Matthew and Chris made a pact to not spill the beans, saying “what happened in China, stays in China.” But now after one last request from his dying fathers deathbed to write the book, that is now not the case. Matthew lifts the lid on the untold story.

Finding Anna: An Unusual Journey To Self-Discovery is a work of non-fiction written in the style of a memoir by author Vineeth Vijayghosh. The narrative recounts the epic journey of the author when, at age thirty, he realizes he would like to do more with his life and begins a vast series of travels in order to better understand his own identity. As experiences in other countries and meeting other people reflect him back to his own roots and the pivotal people in his life, so his consciousness grows. In a unique turn of events, the author recounts the many Annas he met in different countries, and how their stories changed him too.
Author Vineeth Vijayghosh presents a truly heartfelt and unique memoir that anyone on a journey of self-discovery will surely be able to relate to and treasure. As a traveler myself, I found it really wonderful to see the author visit places that I have also been to, and even more delightful to be introduced to vistas that I have yet to visit. The noticing of small details of culture and personality in other people’s lives is a true joy of travel, and the author brings that enthusiasm to life with a well-penned and highly relatable narrative style. The personal moments in the memoir are very evocative because we are able to form a deep connection, and the author is generous with details from his personal life and the formation of his own identity so that we may better understand ourselves. Overall, I would recommend Finding Anna: An Unusual Journey To Self-Discovery as an engrossing but also empowering and educational memoir for anyone who feels they have not yet discovered their true identity in this life.
After my first book “The Dark Edge of the Rainbow” which describes the last War as it was experienced by my family, I was asked to write about the rest of my life, because in conversations people always said: “You should write a book about this”. It was an extraordinary life which happened quite by accident, Guardian Angel guidance, naivety and Life teaching me the hard way. My children were my life savers and to them I dedicate this book. It was a fair life, and looking back I wouldn’t miss a thing, although sometimes I was ready to get off this planet. But that, I suppose is Life. Meanwhile my children have decided to live at the other end of the world in New Zealand and they have made a life for themselves which would not have been possible in Europe. I miss them terribly, but at the same time I am happy that they have made a great success of their lives, have wonderful partners and a child each. In the end, Life has been good to me.
