I just finished reading The Rocks by Peter Nichols. When I first picked it up, I thought I'd already read it, because the cover looks so similar to Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter (reviewed here): But instead of the Italian...

What's Cooking in Editor-Land


Hmm ... I think I'm overdue with an update on what books I've edited recently, so I'll just try to remember the highlights. The first one is a self-help book about being in a relationship with an addict, with a...

Fun Snack


Here's a quick and easy way to impress someone that yes, you made those chips! Wonton Crisps 24 square wonton wrappers 2 tablespoons salted butter, melted and cooled slightly ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese or 2 tablespoons sugar mixed with...
