Bourdain

Laurie Woolever, Bourdain's longtime assistant and confidante, interviewed nearly a hundred of the people who shared Tony's orbit, from members of his kitchen crews to his writing, publishing, and television partners, to his daughter and his closest friends, to piece together a remarkably full, vivid, and nuanced vision of Tony's life and work.

Cosmogramma

In his exquisite first collection of speculative fiction, Courttia Newland envisages an alternate future as lived by the African diaspora. (Short Stories)
