Knitting Pearls by Ann Hood

When I’m not knitting, chances are I’m thinking, talking, or reading about knitting. In between reading the stories in Knitting Pearls, you could be knitting one of the many patterns that are part of the book. And as much as I think everyone in the world should learn to knit, these stories aren’t just for the knit-obsessed. These essays by some of my favorite creative people are about love, heartbreak, family, personal identity, and making sense of it all. —Megan

Alone on the Wall by Alex Honnold

Most famous for his long free solos (climbing with nothing more than shoes and chalk), Alex Honnold takes us on his adventures around the world in his memoir Alone on the Wall. Giving us an inside look at a person operating in such a different plane, on a level of adrenaline that would give most of us a heart attack, Honnold leaves the reader gripping the pages of the book as he describes being alone 2,000 feet off the ground—and off course. His excitement and passion for climbing and exploring will leave you itching to get outside after reading this book.  —Centa

Home Game by Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis, famed sports and business author (The Blind Side, Liars Poker, The Big Short), tackles his toughest subject yet: Fatherhood. Chronicling the first few months after the birth of each of his three children, Lewis’ infectious wit and candidness provide one of the most accurate (and funny) portrayals of fatherhood I’ve ever read. Favorite moment: Lewis recalling his exhausting and excruciating father-daughter camp-out at Berkeley’s Fairy Land only to later decide that it was one of the best nights of his life.  -Casey

More Mexican Everyday by Rick Bayless

Many of Rick Bayless’ fantastic dishes have become staples in our house, so I’m really excited about his new collection. A follow-up to his bestseller, Mexican Everyday, Bayless has written a book designed to not only celebrate the vibrant flavors of the Mexican kitchen, but to get us to cook more—and more confidently. More Mexican Everyday emphasizes vegetables, go-to meals, and techniques to maximize flavor. From Egg-Chorizo Tortas to Roasted Tomatillo Enchiladas, I can’t wait to cook my way through this book.

All the Wild That Remains by David Gessner

The Wild West has always captured our imagination, and few writers have evoked its magic like Edward Abbey and Wallace Stegner, two very different people who presented distinctive sides of the West and worked tirelessly on conservation efforts. This readable book balances the life of both authors with the author’s Western travelogues, history, and the passionate argument for the need to continue the conservation that Abbey and Stegner fought for.

Blood Will Out: The True Story of a Murder, a Mystery, & a Masquerade by Walter Kirn

How would you feel if your friend of 15 years turned out to be a con man and a murderer? Walter Kirn knows. This is the true story of Kirn’s friendship with a man who pretended to be a Rockefeller until his arrest for murder and the subsequent trial. This is true crime at its best—personal and shocking, it seems like it must be fiction, yet isn’t. I couldn’t put this down.

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes by Caitlin Doughty

In her early 20’s, Caitlin Doughty worked in an Oakland mortuary running the cremation machines. In her memoir, Doughty blends mortuary stories with the history of death rituals and argues for a cultural need to become more familiar with death. Her charming voice makes this an enjoyable, fascinating read. It may seem unorthodox, but we all know someone who will love this!

A Woman Without a Country by Eavan Boland

Eavan Boland is considered by Poetry Review to be “one of the finest and boldest poets of the last half century.” Her new collection looks at how we construct one another and how nationhood and history can weave through, reflect, and define the life of an individual. Themes of mother, daughter, and generation echo throughout these extraordinary poems, as they examine how—even without country or settled identity—a legacy of love can endure.
