"In his latest novel, Rushdie invents his own cultural narrative -- one that blends elements of One Thousand and One Nights, Homeric epics, and sci-fi and action/adventure comic books. . . .

"Ruth is one of our greatest storytellers today, which you will feel from the moment you open this book and begin to read: No one writes as warmly and engagingly about the all-important intersection of food, life, love, and loss. This book is a lyrical and deeply intimate journey told through recipes, as only Ruth can do." --Alice Waters

"Robert Reich has written a riveting guide to how our economic and political system has become so badly flawed, distorted by pervasive rent seeking and monopolies. He explains our rising inequality and our poor economic performance. Wholesale reform is needed -- far beyond the usual prescriptions of raising the minimum wage and spending more money on education." --Joseph Stiglitz
