Summary

There are many people who are enthusiastic about food—the cooking of it, the preparation of it, the serving of it, and let’s not forget the eating of it.
 
 
 
But Andrew Delaplaine is the ultimate Food Enthusiast. 
 
 
 
This is another of his books with spot-on reviews of the most exciting restaurants in town. Some will merit only a line or two, just to bring them to your attention. Others deserve a half page or more. 
 
 
 
“Exciting” does not necessarily mean expensive. The area’s top spots get the recognition they so richly deserve (and that they so loudly demand), but there are plenty of “sensible alternatives” for those looking for good food handsomely prepared by cooks and chefs who really care what they “plate up” in the kitchen.
 
 
 
For those with a touch of Guy Fieri, Delaplaine ferrets out the best food for those on a budget. That dingy looking dive bar around the corner may serve up one of the juiciest burgers in town, perfect to wash down with a locally brewed craft beer.
 
 
 
Whatever your predilection or taste, cuisine of choice or your budget, you may rely on Andrew Delaplaine not to disappoint. 
 
 
 
Delaplaine dines anonymously at the Publisher’s expense. No restaurant listed in this series has paid a penny or given so much as a free meal to be included. 
 
 
 
Bon Appétit!

    Who is JRL?
    
    How dare you not know! Justin Ross Lee is a completely self-created, self-inflated Internet celebrity; “Jew Jetter”; and social media virtuoso. When he’s not causing trouble on Bravo or headlining VH1, you’ll find Justin having red-carpet run-ins with A-list celebrities, getting blacklisted from airlines and nightclubs, and monopolizing the tabloid pages with his boisterous bad-boy behavior. Famous for being famous? He’s famous for telling you he’s famous.
    
    So how did this privileged prick from Scarsdale become a jet-setting, luxury-loving, travel-hacking aristo-brat with an army of followers on social media? Don’t worry, JRL is here to tell you. Love him or loathe him—he doesn’t care—he promises to make you laugh so hard you’ll cry, whether it’s at him or with him. Is this book satire or the instructional manual for the modern narcissist? Either way, Don’t You Know Who I Think I Am? is a story of how one man was dubbed “The ego that attacked NYC” by the New York Post and what that man can teach you so you’ll never have to wait in line again.

    I was only a little baby song-sparrow, and from the moment I came out of my shell everybody knew there was something the matter with me. So starts the short story of Scraggles, a young sparrow who came to be rescued and nurtured by a human family, as told in Scraggles "own words". Listeners are forewarned the ending chapters of Scraggles may be disturbing to some of our younger listeners. A special note from the Reader - if you would like to see the pictures of Scraggles that are mentioned in the book, please visit the Project Gutenberg link for the text. (Summary by Tom Weiss)

    Yankee Come Home - On the Road...

    Yankee Come Home explores one family's history in Cuba, and through it, the intense, complex, smoldering relationship between the island nation and its leviathan neighbor. 
     
    In Cuba's most entrancing, storied landscape, William Craig is searching for a history that his family has lost-and now needs to recover. He's looking for the truth about his mysterious great-grandfather, Thomas O'Brien, a self-proclaimed hero of the "splendid little war" who left a legacy of glorious, painful lies. Living a dream that haunts American hearts-the dream of escaping the past, of becoming who we say we are-"Papa" died leaving his own children wondering who he'd really been. 
     
    Along the way, Craig searches for the place where Gilded Age America abandoned republican ideals in favor of imperial ambition-and where his own generation of Americans now preside over arbitrary imprisonment and systematized torture. "I needed to see Guantánamo the way some Americans needed to drive through the night to kneel at JFK's coffin, and others are drawn to Ground Zero," he writes. "Sometimes, we don't know what we've lost until we trace the scars." Traveling with Craig, readers will join in present-day adventures: spirit-possession rituals, black market odysseys, roots-music epiphanies, and discovering the continuing impact of the war in 1898 on both Cuba and America. 
     
    The story of the United States in Cuba is fascinating, but none too flattering. Like the reality of "Papa" O'Brien's identity, it reflects more hubris than heroism, more avarice than sacrifice. In the end, however, Craig's journey in Yankee Come Home is a transformation from disillusionment to redemption.

    Lost Maine Coastal Schooners -...

    Dramatic true stories of New England maritime history, with photos.   Large, wooden-hulled schooners graced the seas of coastal Maine for more than a century as vessels of trade and commerce. With the advent of steam-powered craft, however, these elegant four-, five-, or six-masted wooden ships became obsolete and vanished from the harbors and horizons.   The Edward Lawrence, the last of the six-masters, became her own funeral pyre in Portland Harbor, burning to ash before everyone’s eyes. The Carroll A. Deering washed ashore with no trace of her crew, empty as a ghost ship except for three cats and a pot of pea soup still cooking on the stove. In this testament to the beauty of the Maine coastal region, maritime history enthusiast Ingrid Grenon tells the story of these magnificent relics of the bygone Age of Sail and celebrates the people who devoted their lives to the sea.
