This is the story of a man who embarked on a quest that many of us have dreamed about. Disillusioned by a world hooked on material wealth and scientific fact, he decided to travel across the globe in search of something more meaningful: the magical, the mystical. His journey takes him from snow-blanketed villages in the Himalayas to tiny, covert communities of whirling dervishes in rural Turkey; from the world's largest religious festival on the banks of the swollen Ganges to a dappled, ancient Sufi quarter in Delhi. Lyrical and clear-sighted, All Kinds of Magic is a fascinating exploration of the hidden world of miracles that is at once deeply personal and universal in its scope. PRAISE FOR HONEY AND DUST 'In page after page of beautifully written prose, Moore Ede's passion for the sweet nectar, his curiosity as to how it is produced and his determination to find hunters who will risk their lives to find it are deftly combined with his own holistic belief that his search will miraculously cure his depression. I feel hopeful it did, for this most unusual, compelling and restorative book has certainly vanquished mine' - Alexander Waugh, Mail on Sunday 'Exquisitely written' - Nicola Barr, Guardian 'It is [Moore Ede's] quest for a personal, spiritual regeneration' - Daily Telegraph
