When Diana Henry was sixteen she started a menu notebook (an exercise book carefully covered in wrapping paper). Planning a menu is still her favorite part of cooking. Menus can create very different moods; they can take you places, from an afternoon at the seaside in Brittany to a sultry evening eating mezze in Istanbul. They also have to work as a meal that flows and as a group of dishes that the cook can manage without becoming totally stressed. The 24 menus and 100 recipes in this book reflect places Diana loves, and dishes that are real favorites. The menus are introduced with personal essays in Diana's now well-known voice- about places or journeys or particular times and explain the choice of dishes. Each menu is a story in itself, but the recipes can also stand alone. The title of the book refers to how Italians end a meal in the summer, when it's too hot to cook. The host or hostess just puts a bowl of peaches on the table and offers glasses of chilled moscato (or even Marsala). Guests then slice their peach into the glass, before eating the slices and drinking the wine. That says something very important about eating - simplicity and generosity and sometimes not cooking are what it's about.
How much would you do to follow your passion? Squirrels only passion is peaches, and a farmer and a wall stand between him and his goal. This suspenseful fable is a tale of determination and an unexpected change of heart.
Denton Pike, a divorced translator, is stuck, stalled in a moment of inertia until the reappearance of Peter, an old friend and roving journalist, sets into motion a series of watershed events. Denton and his handful of thirty-something friends each face a choice: seize the day and change your surroundings or bite your lip and perpetuate the status quo. This finely crafted narrative explores the motivations and mettle of a close-knit group of 21st century knowledge workers and, in turn, examines the interpretation of history, the translation of language, and most of all, the dynamics of modern day relationships. It sheds a shadowy light on the crux of decision-making and investigates the conflicting forces that shape our daily lives. With spare, tightly written sentences, Zeppetello's debut novel sparkles with a Raymond Carver-like economic use of language. The effortless dialogue speaks volumes about human nature and illuminates man's daily struggles to make the right choices in life.
Ruth, an Amish woman, was 'set-aside', informally divorced, as she was barren. Reuben was a long divorced and reclusive farmer, now seeking something, which had been long missing from his life-his soul. By accident, by chance, or by fate, he discovers Ruth and sets her free from her state of nothingness, from her prison, but at a terrible cost. And with her freedom, old mysteries and injustices are uncovered, both within the Amish community and the nearby society. Greed, pride, envy, revenge, love and innocence all come into conflict, as two souls seek to find each other.
FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST PACHINKO New York Times Book Review Editor's ChoiceNPR Fresh Air Top Ten Books of the YearUSA Today Top Ten Books of the YearThe Times (London) Top Ten Books of the Year In her critically acclaimed debut, National Book Award finalist Min Jin Lee introduces the indelible Casey Han: a strong-willed, Queens-bred daughter of Korean immigrants who is addicted to a glamorous Manhattan lifestyle she cannot afford. Fresh out of Princeton with an economics degree, no job, and a popular white boyfriend, Casey is determined to carve a space for herself in the glittering world she craves-but at what cost?

"'I have to be a mean son of a bitch so you kids don't miss me when I'm gone.' My father didn't bother to explain this comment as I sat in the passenger seat waiting for some gesture to indicate that he was just kidding. I stepped out of his truck, smiled, and watched him go. Growing up as the farmer's daughter meant the only time I really saw my dad was on the other end of our kitchen table. Usually, he would eat in his truck, which still to this day reeks of coffee and Italian subs. When he would come into the house at dinner, I would sit at his feet, and untie the laces from his boots. Our interactions were few and far between. I was 22 when I picked up a camera and walked into the field. To comprehend the enigma that is my father I had to begin by trying to understand his relationship with the farm. I use the camera as a means to engage in a dialogue with him that normally wouldn't occur. For the past three years the camera has been my only access to the farm and hence to him. I'm granted a physical presence that affords me an emotional distance from my father that I've come to accept and value. He's still able to work as I lag behind him with my telephoto lens. Eventually the lens would shorten and turn towards the other members of my family. Of my four brothers, two of them work on the farm. One suffers from schizophrenia and still lives in our childhood home, and the oldest is a writer. Although my parents are divorced, my mother still resides on the same property that my father farms today. Despite occupying the same land they have no contact with each other. What began as a project to bridge the gap between my father and myself would lead to a collective journey through my family's trials and tribulations, history and future."--Abstract.
