Bill Bryson’s first travel book, The Lost Continent, was unanimously acclaimed as one of the funniest books in years. In Neither Here nor There he brings his unique brand of humour to bear on Europe as he shoulders his backpack, keeps a tight hold on his wallet, and journeys from Hammerfest, the northernmost town on the continent, to Istanbul on the cusp of Asia. Fluent in, oh, at least one language, he retraces his travels as a student twenty years before. Whether braving the homicidal motorists of Paris, being robbed by gypsies in Florence, attempting not to order tripe and eyeballs in a German restaurant or window-shopping in the sex shops of the Reeperbahn, Bryson takes in the sights, dissects the culture and illuminates each place and person with his hilariously caustic observations. He even goes to Liechtenstein.

When he starts hearing voices and conversing with chipmunks, he thinks he can add losing his mind to his growing list of problems. Then he discovers that he's a Faerie who was lost in the human world. Now that he knows his true identity, the human disguise that has been protecting him begins to fade and a whole host of wicked creatures tries to tempt him to use his Faerie power for evil intentions. It's up to Brendan to protect the human world, and to make the ultimate choice between the family he has grown up with and his new Faerie roots.

International bestsellers such as How to Catch a Star, Lost and Found, and The Incredible Book Eating Boy are not only beloved by children and parents alike, but are also highly acclaimed by critics and have won numerous respected awards.

The families of those who disappeared during the 1975-1990 Lebanese civil wars a re still suffering from the disappearance of their family members. They are depr ived from knowing the whereabouts of their loved ones, and are overwhelmed with unanswered questions as to whether their family members are dead or alive. The p ost-war Lebanese governments have not adopted any national policies to acknowled ge the problem, nor to help families in reconciling with the past. The disappeared do not belong to a specific category in the social order. They a re neither dead nor alive. They are suspended between categories and are thus li minal. The liminality of the disappeared can only be studied through the experie nces and narratives of their family members. Drawing on families' narratives as the key issue, this thesis presents a multidisciplinary analysis of the experien ce of the families of the disappeared. Firstly, I suggest that the families' narratives are framed within the context o f liminality. I explore the different aspects related to the issue of disappeara nce and to the liminal state of the families, such as reconciliation on both the personal and the national levels. Secondly, over the course of the research, so me interviewees' recounting of the same material took on new forms. I explore th ese changes and suggest that changes in the narratives correspond with the broad er political changes taking place in Lebanon. Thirdly, I focus on the gendered n ature of the experience of the families where women are predominating in the sea rch for the disappeared. Perceiving the search for the disappeared as women's ro le embodies social and cultural meanings within the broad system of patriarchy. Finally, I focus on families' efforts to reconstruct the disappeared through var ious "linking objects" (photos, personal belongings, artistic work, shrines, and ritualistic visits) through which the disappeared are symbolically retained wit hin the land of the living.
