The Muse in the Suitcase
The Muse in the Suitcase
By Helen Bar-Lev and Johnmichael Simon, Illustrated by Helen Bar-Lev



Don't expect a gentle tour, or map and menu monotone of travel in this exciting work. This is an engaging book of leaving home, with all the dimensions of close observation and adventures of psyche, into personal and planetary history and condition. There is a sense of travel in past and future,... appreciation of nature is redolent...this love of place, sense of keen acknowledgement of Holy Land roots, is the traveler's torch throughout the book.

Katherine L. Gordon, Poet, Publisher, Editor, Literary Critic

If the sixties song "Moon River" filled you with wanderlust once upon your dreams, you'll love this enchanting book that shows we're never too old to set off to see the world. Unlike two young drifters of song, however, who survived on love and a pair of backpacks, this creative pair went fully loaded: pens, pencils, watercolours, brushes, notebooks, sketch pads, cameras. This magnificent book treats readers to tastes of Istanbul, Cyprus, Croatia, Slovenia, Spain, Holland, South Africa and more.

Wanda Sue Parrott, Co-founder, Senior Poets Laureate Poetry Competition
