Bill Buford's Heat meets Phoebe Damrosch's Service Included in this unique blend of personal narrative, food miscellany, and history In March of 2009, Erin Byers Murray ditched her pampered city girl lifestyle and convinced the rowdy and mostly male crew at Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, Massachusetts, to let a completely unprepared, aquaculture-illiterate food and lifestyle writer work for them for a year to learn the business of oysters. The result is Shucked—part love letter, part memoir and part documentary about the world's most beloved bivalves. Providing an in-depth look at the work that goes into getting oysters from farm to table, Shucked shows Erin's fullcircle journey through the modern day oyster farming process and tells a dynamic story about the people who grow our food, and the cutting-edge community of weathered New England oyster farmers who are defying convention and looking ahead. The narrative also interweaves Erin's personal story—the tale of how a technology-obsessed workaholic learns to slow life down a little bit and starts to enjoy getting her hands dirty (and cold). This is a book for oyster lovers everywhere, but also a great read for locavores and foodies in general.

Rochelle Bilow, a classically trained cook and aspiring food writer, was nursing a broken heart and frustrated with her yet-to-take-off career when she set out to write a short profile of a small, sustainable CSA farm in central New York. At most, she expected to come away with a cute city-girl-in-the-country piece. But after just one day of moving hay bales, feeding pigs, and tapping maple sap, she was hooked: The air was fresh, her muscles felt useful, and the smells from the kitchen where the farmhands gathered at day’s end were intoxicating. Add in a sweet but enigmatic young farmer whose soulful gaze meets her own, and The Call of the Farm is set in motion. This enticing memoir charts the unexpected year that unfolds as Rochelle immerses herself in life at the farm. She cooks her way through four seasons of fresh-from-the-earth produce (with such tantalizing results as Blistered Tomato Gratin and Crisped Potato Casserole with Shaved Chives), grapples more than once with the finer points of rendering lard, and begins to feel she has finally found her niche—all while falling hard for that handsome, blue-eyed farmer. Honest, self-aware, and wonderfully tender, The Call of the Farm is for anyone who has daydreamed about a simpler life—or fallen too deeply in love.

»Ein fast perfekter Roman. Shirley Hazzard schreibt so gut wie Stendhal.« The New York Times »Ein plötzlicher Lichtstreif spaltete Erde und Himmel« - und genau diese magische Beleuchtung ist so besonders bei der großen Menschenschilderung von Shirley Hazzard. Transit der Venus ist ihr schönstes, reifstes und aufregendstes Werk! Michael Krüger Die ungleichen Waisen Caro und Grace Bell verlassen Australien, um im England nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg ein neues Leben beginnen. Sie treffen dort auf die Männer, mit denen sich ihre Leben in den folgenden drei Jahrzehnten durch alle politischen Verwerfungen und über die Kontinente hinweg verweben. Astronom Ted Tice umwirbt die selbstbewusste Caro, die einem manipulativen Theaterschriftsteller verfällt. Ihre sanfte Schwester Grace hofft auf Erfüllung in einer scheinbar glücklichen Ehe mit einem Karrierediplomaten. In präzisen und zugleich lyrischen Sätzen entwirft Shirley Hazzard eine Welt, die von unaufhaltsamen Gesetzen bestimmt ist wie die majestätischen Umlaufbahnen der Planeten - und deren Figuren in ihrer Klarheit und Unbeugsamkeit an die klassische Tragödie erinnern. »Transit der Venus mit seinem verwickelten Plot und der wunderschönen Sprache ist ein Klassiker. (...) Eine sonderbar machtvolle Vorahnung des Bösen ist zwischen den Zeilen spürbar, sodass man sich, während es einen zum Ende hin zieht, zugleich davor fürchtet.« John Banville, The New York Times

Grits is a fascinating cultural history and examination of the current role of grits in Southern cuisine. For food writer Erin Byers Murray, grits had always been one of those basic, bland Southern table necessities—something to stick to your ribs or dollop the butter and salt onto. But after hearing a famous chef wax poetic about the terroir of grits, her whole view changed. Suddenly the boring side dish of her youth held importance, nuance, and flavor. She decided to do some digging to better understand the fascinating and evolving role of grits in Southern cuisine and culture as well as her own Southern identity. As more artisan grits producers gain attention in the food world, grits have become elevated and appreciated in new ways, nationally on both sides of the Mason Dixon Line, and by international master chefs. Murray takes the reader behind the scenes of grits cultivation, visiting local growers, millers, and cooks to better understand the South’s interest in and obsession with grits. What she discovers, though, is that beyond the culinary significance of grits, the simple staple leads her to complicated and persisting issues of race, gender, and politics.

Die Welt nach der Finanzkrise. Alle Staaten stehen am Rande des Bankrotts und werden nur noch durch ein transnationales Konsortium, das einfach unter dem Namen "Die Bank" firmiert, am Leben erhalten. Cass Jones muss in dieser Welt Morde aufklären: die Taten eines Serienkillers, der sich "der Fliegenmann" nennt; die Tötung zweier Schuljungen, die ins Kreuzfeuer eines Bandenkrieges geraten; den Selbstmord seines eigenen Bruders Christian, der zuvor noch Frau und Kind tötet. Christian war Angestellter der "Bank". Bald muss Cass Jones begreifen, dass alle Morde zusammenhängen - nicht nur miteinander und mit dem Zustand der Welt, sondern vor allem auch mit ihm selbst. Eine verstörende Spurensuche in seiner eigenen Vergangenheit beginnt.
