Henry Finck's aim in his 1913 work ""Food and Flavor"" is to introduce gastronomy to Americans, to show that America can be an even more gastonomic nation than France. Though an understanding of the ""importance to health and happiness of raising only the best food stuffs, cooking them in savory ways and eating them with intelligence and pleasure,"" Finck aims to reinvigorate the food culture of an America that had given up much of its old-fashioned methods in favor of ""cheaper chemical preservatives."" Finck's argument for cultivating an appreciation for natural, whole American grown and cooked foods is thoroughly modern in its concern.

From the New York Times–bestselling author of The First Wives Club: This novel about an aging actress’s revenge on Hollywood is a “hoot” (Entertainment Weekly). Mary Jane Moran was an ambitious New York stage actress who lost the role of a lifetime and the one man she loved—all because Hollywood thought she was too plain and too old to star in the movies. But M. J. knew what she had inside—she just needed a little help bringing it out. Two years, forty pounds, sixty-seven thousand dollars, and a full round of nips, tucks, lipos, and implants later, the Broadway gypsy moth emerged a gorgeous butterfly with a new name and a new body. The woman now called Jahne Moore was svelte, sexy, and ripe for the big time. Jahne and her two sisters-in-arms—one ruthless LA native and one sweet Texas belle—are making their move on the West Coast. Television’s top creator wants them in the season’s white-hot new series. But as the starlets climb furiously to the top, they struggle to hide the secrets of their pasts. And Jahne Moore must give her most convincing performance ever when the same man who once broke her heart begs her to play a starring role—both in his show and in his life . . . “[A] juicy novel about Hollywood celebrities and secrets.” —Publishers Weekly “Compulsively readable.” —New York Daily News “Delicious and satisfying.” —Detroit Free Press

A “superbly plotted” (Los Angeles Times) page-turning classic from the undisputed Queen of Suspense and #1 New York Times bestselling author Mary Higgins Clark. A minor road accident landed county prosecutor Katie DeMaio in Westlake Hospital. That night, from her window, she thought she saw a man load a woman’s body into the trunk of a car...or was it just a sleeping pill induced nightmare? At work the next day, Katie began investigating a suicide that looked more like murder. Initial evidence pointed elsewhere, but medical examiner Richard Carroll saw a trail leading to Dr. Edgar Highley. He suspected that the famous doctor’s work “curing” infertile women was more than controversial—that it was deceitful, depraved, and often deadly. But before Richard could tell Katie his fears, she left the office for the weekend and an appointment for routine surgery...in Dr. Highley’s operating room. “A harrowing tale” (The New York Times Book Review) that’s “indescribably suspenseful” (San Francisco Chronicle), The Cradle Will Fall is a page-turning thriller of the highest order.

After conquering Atlanta in the summer of 1864 and occupying it for two months, Union forces laid waste to the city in November. William T. Sherman's invasion was a pivotal moment in the history of the South and Atlanta's rebuilding over the following fifty years came to represent the contested meaning of the Civil War itself. The war's aftermath brought contentious transition from Old South to New for whites and African Americans alike. Historian William Link argues that this struggle defined the broader meaning of the Civil War in the modern South, with no place embodying the region's past and future more clearly than Atlanta. Link frames the city as both exceptional--because of the incredible impact of the war there and the city's phoenix-like postwar rise--and as a model for other southern cities. He shows how, in spite of the violent reimposition of white supremacy, freedpeople in Atlanta built a cultural, economic, and political center that helped to define black America.
