I have found this a great foundation cookbook even though I have been an avid, longtime cook for years. This is a great cookbook if you want to understand method, if you want to hone skills and, most importantly, if you want some delicious food.
Ross Gay reminds us all that there are delights all around us all we need to do is slow down and pay attention. His delights are serious, loving, irreverent and heartfelt.
Love, love, love this funny, crazy, tender, big hearted story. This is the most unlikely hero journey. This has all the feels with big doses of humor and empathy for a motley crew of characters in South Brooklyn in 1969 that are each, in their own way, trying to make sense of their histories, taking stock of their present and looking towards an uncertain future.
Beautiful. Red at the Bone follow three generations of a family in Brooklyn. Their choices, their legacies, their strengths, vulnerabilities and their tenacity. Woodson is a master of spare, yet rich language that paints a vivid picture with heart and soul.
This debut is fierce. The stories about Houston and the people feel spot on with a deep sense of place. If you are fan of Edward P. Jones short stories you'll love "Lot." Washington brings a city to life, telling stories about people we often don't hear from, with passion.
An OWN voice history of the United States, this is a must read for anyone interested in "American" history and Native Peoples. Treuer shifts between a wide angle view (the history) and a zoom lens (the personal). I found this a much more thorough history lesson than I ever received in school.
Loved this intimate look at friendship and love, grief and picking up the pieces.
This was such an easy and fun way to learn about women I knew nothing about, new things about women I did know as well as the importance of listening to yourself vs society's expectations. Many serious matters are broached in this graphic novel yet it remains humorous, easy to read with wonderful illustrations.
Prompted by conversations with her young son, Jacobs graphic memoir hits on so many issues of the day - identity, racism, equality, parenting/family. Compassionate and at times humorous.
