Bangkok 8 by John Burdett

Corrupt officials, prostitutes, crime and ghosts are all part of a normal day for Detective Jitpleecheep. When his partner is killed by a cobra on speed, that's when things get interesting. Burdett manages to sink his mystery deep into the layers of Thailand's culture and makes another world seem as close as next door.

Ripe by Nigel Slater

I’m head-over-heels for Slater’s previous book, Tender, which focuses on growing and cooking from his vegetable garden, and have waited anxiously for this companion volume, where he turns his attention to fruit. I am thrilled to say that it was worth the wait. And it’s gorgeous to boot. I’m not the only one swooning: “Nigel Slater has written an impossibly beautiful and elegant companion to Tender. In Ripe, Slater treats fruit with respect and affection. Apricots are nestled between layers of almond cake. Currants are bolstered with bread. Plums jump with pickling spices. Treat yourself to this treasure.” —Amanda Hesser, cofounder of

Preservation Kitchen by Paul Virant, with Kate Leahy

The recent revival of canning, pickling, and preserving has resulted in numerous cookbooks on the subject, but this is the first from a Michelin-starred chef. Paul Virant, of Chicago’s Vie restaurant, shares his passion for preserves in this vibrant book. His enthusiasm is enough to make anyone start gathering jars, but the breadth of his recipes—like aigre-doux, peach saffron jam, and pickled ramps—go far beyond Grandma’s jams and jellies.

Open Heart, Open Mind by Tsoknyi Rinpoche III

Tsoknyi Rinpoche—one of the most beloved of the contemporary generation of Tibetan Buddhist meditation masters—explains that a life free of fear, pain, insecurity, and doubt is not only possible, it’s our birthright. We long for peace, for the ability to love and be loved openly and freely, and for the confidence and clarity to meet the various challenges we face in our daily lives. “Rinpoche’s infectious spiritual energy, enthusiasm and insight will still prove relevant for anyone with an open mind and a willingness to project peace and goodness inward and outward. Centered serenity from one of the greats.” —Kirkus Reviews

A Queer and Pleasant Danger by Kate Bornstein

I can’t wait for the release of Kate Bornstein’s memoir! Queer activist, gender outlaw, and all-around stellar human, Bornstein has been one of my heroes since I discovered Gender Outlaw way back in the day. I’ve heard her story in person at many workshops and speaking events over the years, but it will no doubt be a treat to see it recounted in more luscious detail, with Bornstein’s characteristic style, heart, and humor.

American Grown by Michelle Obama

In American Grown, First Lady Michelle Obama not only tells the story of the White House kitchen garden, but also explores how increased access to healthy, affordable food can promote better eating habits and improve the health of families and communities across America. Mrs. Obama describes how her daughters Sasha and Malia were catalysts for change in her own family’s eating behavior, which inspired Mrs. Obama to plant an edible garden on the South Lawn—the first since Eleanor Roosevelt’s “Victory Garden” planted during World War II.
