Land of Fish and Rice by Fuchsia Dunlop

Acclaimed cookbook author Fuchsia Dunlop (Every Grain of Rice) continues to garner praise, this time for her beautiful new cookbook, Land of Fish and Rice. “Long considered an authority on Chinese cuisine, Dunlop focuses on Jiangnan food, which she spent 10 years studying, in her latest. This particular region is known for its balanced, health-oriented dishes, evident in exquisite vegetable recipes like slivered radish buns and spicy Chinese cabbage.” —Tasting Table

Blood at the Root A Racial Cleansing in America by Patrick Phillips

This is a stunning account of the tragic and brutal history of Forsyth County, Georgia, and the campaign of atrocious racial terror used to force African Americans out of the community and to keep the area “all white” into the 1990s. Extensively researched and carefully constructed, it is a shocking story from our collective past that needs to be acknowledged and shared. The ugly tendencies toward racism and violence are not gone from our society; facing the truth of the past is only a small step, but it is a first step and an important step. Phillips’ compelling narrative, powerful prose, and personal honesty will help start that journey. —Nici

A WRETCHED AND PRECARIOUS SITUATION by David Welky

From my cozy home, I am unsure how anyone survived early Arctic explorations or why they kept going back, but I certainly love reading about them. This book follows a two-year expedition that becomes a five-year expedition and involves a drunken ship captain, a murderer, and all sorts of other disasters. If you enjoy reading about disastrous polar expeditions from the comfort of your armchair as much as I do, this is for you.                                                         —Flannery

BOLSHOI CONFIDENTIAL by Simon Morrison

Simon Morrison uses the recent scandal and violence in Russian ballet to introduce us to the ballet, then takes us back to the 18th century and the first government contracts of Russian performance. He then brings us forward to the present day via in-depth stories and vibrant vignettes about the colorful figures who shaped the Russian ballet. Bolshoi Confidential takes not the idealized vision or techniques but the historical events, buildings, and most of all, the people of the Bolshoi, as subjects in this full-bodied history.      —Jocelyn

Now: The Physics of Time by Richard Muller

Before the big bang, and arguably before the existence of humans, time did not exist. In this brilliant work, UC Berkeley physics professor Richard Muller chronicles the human understanding of time, and its relentless forward momentum through the lens of quantum physics past into its conceptual evolution into the fourth dimension and beyond. Now: The Physics of Time is the perfect read for any aspiring citizen-physicist. —Aric

THE TIDE by Hugh Aldersey-Williams

The audio version of The Tide should be read by that extreme-movie-preview voiceover guy—you know the one—because this writer is More Intense About the Ocean Than You. Melville, eat your heart out! Challenging, intellectual, flowery, and epic, the book opens with 13 hours of the author watching the tide go in and out. Thereafter, The Tide takes us on a tour of Greek mythology, classical history, the art of Andy Goldsworthy, and the linguistics of water…for crying out loud, people die tied to stakes on the shore! Delightful madness.                                                                 —a.c.

Collected Poems: 1950–2012 by Adrienne Rich

To me, Adrienne Rich is the beautiful, brazen, contemplative, powerful, deeply complex feminist heroine of all modern poetry. I pass on her poems to struggling friends like a missionary trying to woo converts—give them as gifts to embolden and uplift—and carry her collections for courage during long travel. I wish this complete edition of her poetry, beautifully bound, could be passed out to young women everywhere.  —a.c.

Of Poetry and Protest: From Emmett Till to Trayvon Martin by Phil Cushway & Michael Warr

Of Poetry and Protest is a testament to the power of the written word to heal and connect. Some of America’s most treasured poets write candidly, sometimes with sadness, about anti-blackness in their lives. This is a really solid collection of poetry that makes an important addition to the Black Lives Matter movement, one that celebrates art as a medium for change and healing.  —Louise

Grunt by Mary Roach

Oh, the places Mary Roach has gone! She’s floated in zero gravity, she’s stuck her hand inside a cow, and she’s gotten busy in an MRI machine. Now she’s on to something completely different: the military. Turns out there is a lot of science that goes into equipping our men and women in uniform, and much of it is quite bizarre. I cracked up twice during the first chapter alone. Don’t miss our event with Mary Roach on June 24th. See page 17.  —Kat
