Confessions of a French Baker

Peter Mayle

Confessions of a French Baker by Peter MayleAttention bread lovers!

In the first of his famous books about Provence, Peter Mayle shared with us news of a bakery in the town of Cavaillon where the baking and appreciation of breads "had been elevated to the status of a minor religion." Its name: Chez Auzet.

Now, several hundred visits later, Mayle has joined forces with Gerard Auzet, the proprietor of this most glorious of Provençal bakeries, to tell us about breadmaking at its finest.

Mayle takes us into the baking room to witness the birth of a loaf. We see the master at work - slapping, rolling, squeezing, folding, and twisting dough...

Trapeze

Deborah Digges

Trapeze by Deborah DiggesThese lush, rewarding reflections on a womanÂ's passage into midlife are grounded in our intimacy with nature and mortality. Deborah Digges, now in her fifties, looks back in such poems as Â"BoatÂ" to see younger mothers and their children, and ponders her own Â"brilliant, trivial unmooring.Â" As she wanders from the garden to the barn and into the woods, she finds her moods mirrored in the calendar of the seasons, making lush music of the materials at hand and accepting the seismic changes in her life with an appreciation for the incidental scraps of beauty she chances upon. Throughout...

Refusing Heaven

Jack Gilbert

Refusing Heaven by Jack GilbertMore than a decade after Jack GilbertÂ's The Great Fires, this highly anticipated new collection shows the continued development of a poet who has remained fierce in his avoidance of the beaten path. In Refusing Heaven, Gilbert writes compellingly about the commingled passion, loneliness, and sometimes surprising happiness of a life spent in luminous understanding of his own blessings and shortcomings: Â"The days and nights wasted . . . Long hot afternoons / watching ants while the cicadas railed / in the Chinese elm about the brevity of life.Â" Time slows down in these poems, as Gilbert...

Burnt Island

D. Nurkse

Burnt Island by D. NurkseD. NurkseÂ's Burnt Island explores tragedy both grand and intimate, in city and country, in our own troubled moment and across the greater scope of geological time. Arranged in three Â"suitesÂ" of lucid, often heart-wrenching verse, the book begins with a city under siege, in a group of poems that becomes a subtle homage to New York after 9/11–a metaphorical Â"burnt island,Â" where diggers doze on their shovels, citizens contribute bottles of water, M&MÂ's, and casseroles to recovery efforts, and survivors, mesmerized by the photos of the missing, compare them Â"scar by scar with...
