"Mona Lisa's Pajamas" gives readers a round-trip ticket for a journey around the world, carrying them to distant destinations most of us will never visit. Originally written for "The Wall Street Journal" and "Bloomberg News", Copetas' delightfully surprising columns are now collected in book form for the first time. Covering exotic locales, improbable business ventures, artisan winemakers and memorably oddball characters, Copetas' vivid writing brings his subjects alive with richly-textured descriptions only a truly gifted observer can capture. From Sparta's souvenir sword-makers swamped with demand thanks to the hit movie "300", to a Russian golf pro whose favourite clubs were built from the scrapped metal of a Soviet nuclear missile, Copetas writes of unorthodox business pursuits and faraway locations with an infectious joie de vivre and an unerring eye for what makes enjoyable reading.
