    The Fiorella Files-Fendom, Kakuzo, Haywood Fiorella Nash


On this episode of the Fiorella Files, Fiorella reviews:

Dirty Briefs: The Hilarious Struggles And Shocking Tales Of A Bare-Knuckle Criminal Barrister by David Fendom

Hilarious at times, shocking at others, we follow the upward (or is that downward) trajectory of a young criminal barrister as they navigate their way through the minefield otherwise known as the British legal system.

The Book of Tea by Okakura Kakuzo

The original 1906 edition of The Book of Tea is one of the classic texts found on the desks of artists, poets, teaists and Zen Buddhists around the world.  The book has been re-designed and expanded for a contemporary audience.

You will discover the fascinating character of Okakura Kakuzo and the story of how he came to write one of the twentieth century’s most influential books on art, beauty, and simplicity—all steeped in the world’s communal cup of tea. His incredible journey took him from Yokohama to New York, Paris, Bombay, and Boston, where his life intertwined with such luminaries as Rabindranath Tagore, John Singer Sargent, Henry James, John La Farge, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Ezra Pound, and Henri Matisse. His writings influenced the work of such notable artists as Frank Lloyd Wright and Georgia O’Keeffe.

Fictionland, by R.R. Haywood

A delivery driver finds himself inside a world occupied by characters from unfinished novels and must accept he is not real. But the world around him doesn’t feel right, and when he starts asking questions, the authorities soon take extreme measures to stop him finding the truth about Fiction Land.
