What You Have Heard is True by Carolyn Forché

My current favorite work of nonfiction, written by one of our best poets. It chronicles in stunning fashion her work in support of the revolutionary movement in El Salvador. Includes some of the stories she told us when she first visited Bookshop in the early 80s. Beautifully written and compelling. - Patrick

Pasta, Pane, Vino by Matt Goulding

I loved the previous title in this series about Spain (Grape, Olive, Pig), and this one about Italy is just as good. For one thing, the author gives a well-deserved shout-out to Ciccio Sultano, chef/owner of Duomo Ristorante in the hilltown of Ragusa, Sicily. During a recent visit there, I was lucky enough to enjoy the best meal we had in Italy. Goulding’s focus is on the respectful innovators of traditional cuisine. I dare anyone to read the good-spirited debate Goulding has with Anthony Bourdain in the foreword and then be able to stop there. - Patrick

Grape Olive Pig by Matt Goulding

Grape, Olive, Pig: Deep Travels Through Spain delightfully focuses on these three "primary food groups" of Spain. A regional (and illustrated) exploration of culture and cuisine, it is also a love story and more. It will make you want to at least visit, if not move. It did me.— T.S.
