Why Americans Zig Zag When They Eat : Written by the renowned and best-selling Cadogan Guide authors who have over forty titles in print, Why Americans Zig Zag When They Eat is a fascinating, entertaining, wry and utterly absorbing book, combining hilarious yet unbelievable snippets from their travels, with an array of historical, cultural and travel miscellany and tittle-tattle from around the world. Drawing from over twenty years of experience going to hitherto untouched parts of Europe and beyond, Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls trace with infectious enthusiasm the history of cosmetics, the customs of the harem of Istanbul, how the Venetian republic was run, the antiquities of Sicily, the werewolves at the ancient Olympics. They examine why gnats buzz in circles, the boiling down of mummies for medicine, Goethe's colour theory, the Napoleonic coincidences, Marie Laveau, the voodoo queen of New Orleans, the origins of the constellations, man made deserts and how English titmice disproved one of the dogmas of evolution in 1946.
