Matthew Thomas - We Are Not Ourselves

Destined to be a classic, We Are Not Ourselves is a "powerfully moving" (Chad Harbach, "The Art of Fielding), multigenerational novel about an Irish-American family that is being hailed as nothing short of a "masterwork" (Joshua Ferris, "Then We Came to the End"). Born in 1941, Eileen Tumulty is raised by her Irish immigrant parents in Woodside, Queens, in an apartment where the mood swings between heartbreak and hilarity, depending on whether guests are over and how much alcohol has been consumed. When Eileen meets Ed Leary, a scientist whose bearing is nothing like those of the men she grew up with, she thinks she's found the perfect partner to deliver her to the cosmopolitan world she longs to inhabit. They marry, and Eileen quickly discovers Ed doesn't aspire to the same, ever bigger, stakes in the American Dream. Epic in scope, heroic in character, masterful in prose, this debut novel heralds the arrival of a major new talent in contemporary fiction.

Matthew Thomas was born in the Bronx and grew up in Queens. A graduate of the University of Chicago, he has an MA from the Writing Seminars at Johns Hopkins University and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine, where he received the Graduate Essay Award. He lives with his wife and twin children in New Jersey.

Dan Jurafsky - The Language of Food

Why do we eat toast for breakfast, and then toast to good health at dinner? What does the turkey we eat on Thanksgiving have to do with the country on the eastern Mediterranean? Can you figure out how much your dinner will cost by counting the words on the menu? In The Language of Food, Stanford University professor and MacArthur Fellow Dan Jurafsky peels away the mysteries from the foods we think we know. Thirteen chapters evoke the joy and discovery of reading a menu dotted with the sharp-eyed annotations of a linguist.

Dan Jurafsky is a Professor of Linguistics and Computer Science at Stanford University. His studies concern natural language processing, speech processing, dialogue, Chinese, and the applications of computational linguistics to the behavioral and social sciences. He is the former recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, an honor colloquially known as a "Genius Grant."

Ramita Navai - City of Lies

City of Lies: Love, Sex, Death, and the Search for Truth in Tehran travels up and down Vali-Asr Street, Tehran’s pulsing thoroughfare, from the lavish shopping malls of Tajrish through the smog that lingers over the humbler alleyways and bazaars of the city’s southern districts. This fearless first book from Emmy-Award winning journalist and reporter Ramita Navai candidly exposes the passions of ordinary Iranians forced to live extraordinary lives; the porn star, the aging socialite, the assassin and enemy of the state who ends up working for the Republic, the volunteer religious militiaman who undergoes a sex change, the dutiful housewife who files for divorce, and the old-time thug running a gambling den—all of whom Navai got to know when she lived as an undercover journalist in Tehran. This is a shocking, backstreet glimpse of modern Tehran: the gritty, dizzying city in which—if you want to survive—you have to lie.

Ramita Navai is an international journalist who has reported from some of the most dangerous places in the world including Sudan, Afghanistan, Egypt, Nigeria, El Salvador, and Zimbabwe, and earned an Emmy for her undercover report from Syria. She has also worked as a journalist for the United Nations in Pakistan, northern Iraq and Iran, and was the Tehran correspondent for The Times from 2003 to 2006.

Jacqueline Briggs Martin - Alice Waters and the Trip to Delicious

The search for good food led Alice Waters to France, back to her home in Berkeley, California, to starting the famed restaurant Chez Panisse, and to the founding of the Edible Schoolyard. To her a delicious meal does not start in the kitchen, but in the field with good soil and caring farmers.

Jacqueline Briggs Martin, author of the Caldecott winner, Snowflake Bentley, and Farmer Will Allen and the Growing Table, tells how one child's search for delicious led to a dream for all children to share the joy of tasty food—the same joy we get from a beautiful song, or a starry sky.
