I love this book about Vivien Thomas, a medical pioneer who, without a medical degree, developed a way to save babies with heart defects. This story follows the birth of a baby elephant with vibrant colors, beautiful illustrations and fun, repetitive text. We have partnered with Libro.

January: Ben and Mark, Down in the Well…. There are two boys in the well, Big and Small. It becomes a myth-like story of love, humanity, and the struggle to survive. February: Lose Weight! Lose Your Mind. April: Painting with Water on the Walls.
Things can get a lot worse really quickly. July: Brazos Best is the Thing with Feathers. It has a lot of different voices speaking in it. And the verbal acrobatics of the crow: very poetic. I know about her abusive ex-husband and her abusive on-again, off-again boyfriend, the fling she had in Albuquerque; I know that she masturbates every day. In other words, I already know everything I want to know, more than I deserve to know. His work has been translated into over thirty languages.
And I love how the book occupies the sweet spot between intellectual heft and also just page-turning thrills.
Fortunately, there were a lot of exciting things that came out this year, both books and gifts, and in no specific order, here are ten items that captivated my attention in I visited Key West with my family this past spring and this was the perfect book to take along for the trip. The complexity of the characters and powerful descriptive language left this one lingering in my mind for months after I finished it.
The Atavist magazine, to those who are unfamiliar, publishes one longform narrative nonfiction piece each month and has, previously, only been available in digital format. I am now a convert. The topics are diverse, the styles are wide ranging and like any good narrative nonfiction, the author starts off investigating a particular theme of interest but end up somewhere entirely different and unexpected.
By deeply exploring one very specific fascination, the essayists end up speaking to the much larger universal human condition and I feel greatly enriched by their words. If there is one essay collection not to miss this year, this is the one. I find myself, over and over, gravitating towards debut novels, especially by women writers.
Told by a chorus of voices, the narrative follows three African-American teenagers as they mature into adulthood and work through the interrelated complexities that life throws at them. His latest cookbook is a more intimate look into where Bourdain is at this point in his life no longer the raucous, hard partying chef but a father and husband. The recipes are less focused on being of a particular style but more reflective of what he likes to make at home, with his daughter, for his family and friends.
I am a recent convert to and lover of books in translation but I must admit: I had never read any Enrique Vila-Matas.

The thing about publishing is that not every book gets the publicity it needs or deserves. This is simply the way the business works, and it has little if anything to do with the quality of the writing and pretty much everything to do with months, if not years, of advance marketing decisions about what will sell the most copies and why. The verse format and multiple narrators makes this a page turner and a story set in a Cuba that few of us know makes it a must read for middle-graders who love history and based-on-truth stories. A great way to introduce social justice.
On to the virtual pile it goes. Your picture is lovely, btw! Feb 9, , pm. My heart bleeds as well for all the families that were affected. Oh, Thank you! The pic was huge at first and so I went to photobucket to make it smaller. My dress was black on the top and white on the bottom.
