    "I did not go to Nicaragua intending to write a book, or, indeed, to write at all: but my encounter with the place affected me so deeply that in the end I had no choice." So notes Salman Rushdie in his first work of nonfiction, a book as imaginative and meaningful as his acclaimed novels. In The Jaguar Smile, Rushdie paints a brilliantly sharp and haunting portrait of the people, the politics, the terrain, and the poetry of "a country in which the ancient, opposing forces of creation and destruction were in violent collision." 
    Recounting his travels there in 1986, in the midst of America's behind-the-scenes war against the Sandinistas, Rushdie reveals a nation resounding to the clashes between government and individuals, history and morality.

    A culinary history of some of the Crescent City’s best restaurants through the years, featuring delicious recipes you can make at home.Every New Orleanian knows Leah Chase’s gumbo, but few realize that the Freedom Fighters gathered and strategized over bowls of that very dish. Or that Parkway’s roast beef po-boy originated in a streetcar conductors’ strike. In a town where Antoine’s Oysters Rockefeller is still served up by the founder’s great-great-grandson, discover the chefs and restaurateurs who kept their gas flames burning through the Great Depression and Hurricane Katrina. Author Alexandra Kennon weaves the classic offerings of Creole grande dames together with contemporary neighborhood staples for a guide through the Crescent City's culinary soul. From Brennan’s Bananas Foster to Galatoire’s Soufflé Potatoes, this collection also features a recipe from each restaurant, allowing readers to replicate iconic New Orleans cuisine at home.“I tip my toque to Alex Kennon for a captivating walk through New Orleans’ restaurant history—from the owners who preserved these houses of gastronomy to the legendary chefs who managed taste and flavor. As reflected through these pages, the Crescent City feeds the soul like no other place on the globe.” —Chef John D. Folse, Louisiana’s culinary ambassador to the world“The roux-spattered archives of Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Parkway Bakery and Tavern, and other heavyweights are crammed with anecdotes, not to mention recipes, but that’s where Kennon’s highly unusual CV comes in. The editor/entertainer sifts through a century and a half of culinary histories to craft a compelling narrative rife with colorful traditions . . . Just as valuable are her expansive conversations with owners, chefs, bartenders, and oyster shuckers alike as they tote weighty reputations and make delicate changes with another century of success in mind.” —Country Roads Magazine “Within its pages, Kennon explores what it’s like to be part of the process of creating the thousands of memorable meals that have been served at some of the most beloved (and mostly family-run) restaurants over the decades.” —The Advocate

    An Angle on the World -...

    An “artful and compassionate” collection of personal essays, travel writing, dispatches, and book reviews from the author of Laughing in the Hills (Time).  An Angle on the World is a brilliant tribute to Bill Barich’s extraordinary range as a writer. Gathering together more than thirty years of work, this book addresses such diverse subjects as a murder trial in the Caribbean, a visit to a juju doctor in Nigeria, and the author’s youthful escapades in Italy and the Haight-Ashbury. As the New York Times put it, “An easy, fluid stylist, Barich writes entertainingly about anything.”   Few writers are as gifted as Barich at making people come alive on the page. His portrait of David Milch, the legendary creator of HBO’s Deadwood, offers an inside look at an eccentric genius at work. Here the Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia is depicted as a real person, not a rock star cliché. He finds heroes in such unlikely places as the San Fernando Valley, where former gang members try to prevent teenagers from killing one another in turf wars, and in the trials of operating a home for paranoid schizophrenics in San Francisco.   Whenever Barich hits the road, whether to London or Barbados, he expresses the sheer joy of being alive. An Angle on the World is an ideal bedside reader, packed with insight, good humor, and razor-sharp prose that has earned Barich his enviable reputation as a writers’ writer.   “Few writers are so lucid and evocative.” —Robert Stone, New York Times–bestselling author
