The Cool Side of the Pillow is a coming-of-age story that begins with my life among the aristocracy in Mexico, and concludes in a courtroom in El Paso, Texas. Arrested in Mexico City and after three months in prison, I am on the edge of my seat waiting to hear a judge decide my future. Mine was a life of privilege --My British father, a pilot during the First World War, and my beautiful mother are ill-matched, but they have forged a life together in a privileged society. I have no memory of the death of my first-born brother, but I recall vividly the day my younger brother Christopher, who was one year younger and my best friend, died at the age of four. Two weeks later, blaming incompetent doctors, our parents packed up my sister “Billie,” who was six years older, and me, and headed to Los Angeles. My sister figures out her life quite quickly, while I, on the other hand, become, in the words of one teacher, “incorrigible.” In my mind, I am the lonely, bright boy who struggles to form an identity as my parents divorce, and I am moved from a safe and responsible farm life and a one-room schoolhouse, to one of the biggest high schools in Los Angeles. I develop a persona that enables me to manage in a tricky world. Soon I am introduced to the darker realms of society, where I try to create a balance between a normal life of dating and fun hijinks and the almost uncontrollable urges to outwit the system. As one who had learned to cover his fears and anger with a patina of arrogance and callousness, I had to be brought to the absolute edge of terror before I would begin my adult life with an attitude of gratitude and responsibility.

A novel that explores the end of that intimate and personal journey, marriage. It's about a divorce that rips apart two people who at one time both thought the other was their soul mate, their reason for living. When one person wants more than they can ever get from the other, then they seek out someone new, someone who can give them what it is they crave. Like a serpent, they leave their old life behind like a shed skin. The hardest thing for any of us to accept is that some things in this life are beyond our control. Pete Graham is left by his beautiful, sexy young wife Terri for a much richer man. She knows what she wants out of life and how to get it and that means she needs a man who would gladly leave a wife of his own, a wife 15 years his senior and no longer the sexy, alluring older woman she was when he first met her. A woman who feels her age and vulnerability, especially as he left her with more than just a sense of total loss.

Does the sensation of Tingrith(1) make you yelp? Do you bend sympathetically when you see someone Ahenny(2)? Can you deal with a Naugatuck(3) without causing a Toronto(4)? Will you suffer from Kettering(5) this summer? Probably. You are almost certainly familiar with all these experiences but just didn’t know that there are words for them. Well, in fact, there aren’t—or rather there weren’t, until Douglas Adams and John Lloyd decided to plug these egregious linguistic lacunae(6). They quickly realized that just as there are an awful lot of experiences that no one has a name for, so there are an awful lot of names for places you will never need to go to. What a waste. As responsible citizens of a small and crowded world, we must all learn the virtues of recycling(7) and put old, worn-out but still serviceable names to exciting, vibrant, new uses. This is the book that does that for you: The Deeper Meaning of Liff—a whole new solution to the problem of Great Wakering(8) 1—The feeling of aluminum foil against your fillings. 2—The way people stand when examining other people’s bookshelves. 3—A plastic packet containing shampoo, mustard, etc., which is impossible to open except by biting off the corners. 4—Generic term for anything that comes out in a gush, despite all your efforts to let it out carefully, e.g., flour into a white sauce, ketchup onto fish, a dog into the yard, and another naughty meaning that we can’t put on the cover. 5—The marks left on your bottom and thighs after you’ve been sitting sunbathing in a wicker chair. 6—God knows what this means 7—For instance, some of this book was first published in Britain twenty-six years ago. 8—Look it up yourself. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Wife of the Chef is at once a no-holds-barred memoir of restaurant life and a revealing look at married life. For Courtney Febbroriello, the two are intertwined. She and her husband own an American bistro in Connecticut. He's the chef, so naturally he gets all the credit. She has the role of keeping things running, but she's the wife, so she remains anonymous or invisible or both. Febbroriello comes front and center here, detailing the everyday challenges she faces—taking over dish-washing duty, bailing waiters out of jail, untangling the immigration laws, cajoling lazy suppliers, handling unreasonable customers, and a host of other emergency duties. She pokes fun at people who take food and wine—and the chef—too seriously, with witty comments on everything from "chef envy" to the much-ballyhooed James Beard Awards. Spiced with a healthy spoonful of feminism and enriched with a cup of humor, Wife of the Chef is the tastiest "dish" of the season. From the Hardcover edition.

A timely, passionate argument for planning end-of-life care. This is a powerful short book that combines Dr. Overton's rare frontline reportage on common end-of-life practices with her professional frustration at Harvard's highest (and most disconnected) level of health care discourse -- as well as her insight into her own family experience. Overton is an acclaimed memoirist, and this timely polemic is in perfectly in tune with a hot-button political topic and new rules in Medicare practices.
