The Reader’s House

Born in the most unexpected manner, P. A. Brown’s life seemed destined for spontaneity and exploration right from the start. Emerging into the world amidst the hustle of an English hospital, his first moments were marked by an unusual episode, finding himself accidentally bundled up in soiled linens bound for the laundry chute!

This whimsical beginning seemed to set the stage for a life characterized by a relentless pursuit of knowledge, fascination with the world’s mysteries, and an insatiable thirst for travel. Even during his formative years, Brown displayed an innate curiosity, spending countless hours writing letters to organizations worldwide, eagerly anticipating their responses filled with information, pamphlets, and exotic postage stamps that fueled his passion for the globe.

Growing up in England, his adolescence was spent immersed in the moors and mountains, relishing every chance to explore the wild and remote corners of his surroundings. This deep-rooted fascination with ancient stonework, peculiarities, and the inexplicable facets of the world propelled him into a lifetime of extensive global travel, venturing twice around the world and traversing obscure terrains in numerous countries and islands.

After completing his education, Brown set his sights on a life of travel, extending his experiences to four different countries apart from his homeland, enriching his life with a treasure trove of diverse memories and encounters.

Brown’s literary journey mirrors his eclectic experiences, with his recent book, “10 Indelibles: Formidable Distinctive Individuals,” delving into the transformative encounters that shaped his identity. The tales within, often stretching the bounds of believability, recount peculiar incidents involving extraordinary individuals who have left an indelible mark on his life. Sharing these encounters has proven to be a cathartic experience, unlocking long-held stories and fostering connections with open-minded readers willing to explore the mysteries of existence.

His newly published book, “Hack Your Flights: Complete Guide to Everything Air Travel,” stands in stark contrast to his previous esoteric work. Stemming from a realization of how passengers often leave their air travel experiences to chance, Brown delves into the intricacies of optimizing flight experiences. Drawing from personal anecdotes, including enduring a grueling 51-hour flight with minimal stops, he explores techniques for making air travel not only bearable but enjoyable. From mastering the art of comfortable sleep during flights to avoiding undesirable seating situations, Brown offers insights that transform the tediousness of air travel into a seamless and pleasant journey.

P. A. Brown’s life and work embody an insatiable curiosity and an unwavering determination to unearth the extraordinary in the ordinary, inviting readers to join him on a voyage of discovery through the unknown realms of our world and within ourselves.

Who is your favorite hero or heroine? 

Alexander Selkirk, Defoe’s inspiration for Robinson Crusoe. 

If you could meet any writer, dead or alive, who would it be? And what would you want to know?

William Dampier. I would ask him hundreds of questions about his amazing experiences travelling the world. For example, he visited the Galapagos Islands 150 years before Darwin!

What kind of reader were you as a child? 

 Not an avid reader of story books (novels). I was more interested in factual books about far-off places.

What genres do you especially enjoy reading? 

Only non-fiction! There isn’t enough time to read fiction as well, and besides, to me fiction is not very interesting and doesn’t hold my attention.

What’s your favorite book no one else has heard of?

 I’m sure some have heard of it …. Latin America by Preston James (Published 1986). A huge book of immensely significant information.

Who are your favorite writers? Are there any who aren’t as widely known as they should be, whom you’d recommend in particular?

Robert Whitaker caught my attention with his true historical story of The MapMaker’s Wife. An absolutely amazing account that every woman especially, but also every man should read. Also Diana and Michael Preston, joint authors of “A Pirate of Exquisite Mind – The Life of William Dampier.

What book are you planning to read next?

One, Strange Objects by Gary Crew. This will be as close to fiction as I ever get!

Second, Wonders in the Sky by Jaques Valley & Chris Aback — a book about paranormal investigations.

Excerpt from the book

“An extremely useful portal is airlineratings.com, which ranks more than 300 airlines on crashes, fatalities, and safety audits, as well as an overall rating out of seven stars based on 11 separate audits.

While the majority of airlines boast a full gallery of stars, some are decidedly less glittering. Bringing up the rear, without a single star, is a formation of regional Russian carriers—Nordavia, Pobeda, Rossiya, Uttair, and Ural Airlines. Tellingly, Russian state carrier Aeroflot is also leading from the back with zero stars.”
