Such a fascinating book: this contemporary Book of Hours feeds the mind and heart. Topics range from Casanova's famous late-night card match, to the love of roses in ancient Persia, to the confusing evolution of star naming. Minka Sicklinger's illustrations are a perfect companion. I loved basking in it by reading only an entry a day...
Gates chronicles his worldwide travels to abandoned mansions, underground tunnels, and suspension bridges –-so squirmish travelers like me don’t have to! Experience what it’s like to break into the Notre Dame at night, or explore skyscraper rooftops in Sao Paulo. Bon voyage!
In Christopher Boffoli's book, you'll find typical people doing typical people things --just with big food. The photos are smart, funny, even philosophical at times. A fun gift book for foodies, artists, or anyone appreciative of the unusual.
You don't have to be a steampunk fan to love this clever and original book. Iwata bridges the ordinary (M is for Microphone) with the fantastical (a Microphone that can translate words!). Fun for children AND adults. Jennifer
Rearden's novel takes place after a deadly epidemic strikes rural Alaska, and those few left behind must survive. An achingly beautiful, thrilling read.
What if, after 22 years, you find out that the person you've loved isn't the man you thought he was? When Sabine's magician husband dies, she discovers how he was most adept at making his past disappear. Wonderful characters, breathtaking prose. Patchett's writing is at its best here --my favorite book by her so far.
