“The Green Season” by Robert Isenberg
The Tico Times Store ships only within Costa Rica (details at the bottom of the page).
“The Green Season” is a dynamic collection of essays and reportage by former Tico Times staff writer Robert Isenberg, who covered arts, culture and travel for the paper from 2013 to 2015. With his trademark humor and observation, Isenberg describes the people, culture, and biodiversity that make Costa Rica so unique—from a centuries-old indigenous ceremony to a remote jungle crisscrossed by crocodile-filled canals. Isenberg explores the country head-on, fighting his way through San José traffic, mingling with venomous snakes, and even making a cameo in an epic soccer film at the height of World Cup fever. Richly detailed and tenderly written, “The Green Season” is as entertaining as it is informative.
Praise for “The Green Season”:
“‘The Green Season’ offers a personal glimpse into the joys and frustrations of expat life in Costa Rica. Isenberg delights in capturing the country’s daily rhythms, from the magical to the mundane. An honest, thoughtful look at modern-day Costa Rica.”
-- James Kaiser, author of “Costa Rica: The Complete Guide”
“Robert Isenberg has a delightful way of describing the new horizons around him....Everyone he meets opens up to him and we get to infiltrate and experience new places, new cultures and new friends alongside him. I, for one, intend to read all his books.”
-- Caroline Kennedy, author of “How the English Establishment Framed Stephen Ward”
