War vs Art. Adolf Hitler vs Jasper Maskelyne. Which book does Yareah recommend for this week? Well, there are so many. I’ve been reading The War Magician this summer and in my opinion, it’s fantastic. Then, it could be a choice. At least, it’s different.


The War Magician by David Fisher in Amazon

The War Magician by the popular writer David Fisher is an amazing book, which tells the story of Jasper Maskelyne, whose adventures during IIWW are still guarded by Great Britain under extreme secrecy and they will not see the light for another thirty years.

In fact, Jasper Maskelyne was a famous magician and illusionist in the 1930s and in the problematic Europe before the Second World War. When war broke out, Maskelyne volunteered his services to the British Army and was sent to Egypt, where the war had just begun. He used his skills as magician to save the vital port of Alexandria from German bombers and to ‘hide’ the Suez Canal from them. He invented all sorts of camouflage methods to make truck. His work concluded with the excellent deception plan that won the Battle of El Alamein, because he created an entire dummy army in the middle of the desert. Interesting? Of course.

The novel is thrilling and really interesting. Anyway, it’s not a book of history and people have criticized the truth of the plot. Well, if you like to read a book of history, look for an essay but if you like a magic moment, maybe this is your book.

Have a nice day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
