J.K. Rowling: A Bibliography 1997-2013

‘As someone who respects comprehensive research, I am in awe of the level of detail and amount of time Philip Errington has dedicated to this slavishly thorough and somewhat mind-boggling bibliography.’ J. K. Rowling

This is the definitive bibliography of the writings of J. K. Rowling. In addition to complete bibliographic details of each edition of all her books, pamphlets and original contributions to published works, there is detailed information on the publishing history of her work, including fascinating extracts from correspondence, and information on Rowling at auction. This will be the first source on Rowling consulted by textual scholars, book dealers and collectors, auction houses, critics and researchers. The aim of the book is to record fact and dispel rumour on the fascinating publishing history of the Harry Potter series.

Eulogy of the American Factory Town

Baby boomers and their parents lived it. Children grew up listening to the stories – days in the life of a factory town during the peak of the Industrial Era. Legacies of American history forged in the open hearth furnace. It was an iconic time in our history when emigrants came together to build a better life. The best days for these once productive blue collar communities have passed.

Thomas Wolfe observed that “You can’t go home again.” Nostalgia aside, ‘home’ has moved on. Visiting the place of my birth and my youth in what was once an American factory town was a stark reminder that the American factory town has also moved on.

Eulogy of the American Factory Town chronicles the culturally driven, hardworking communities that once set the pace for prosperity. As we race toward the Information Age, these towns are drying up like rain pools in the sun. A series of anecdotes and short, free-form essays recalls that time.

Authentic Mexican: Regional Cooking from the Heart of Mexico

Americans have at last discovered Mexico’s passion for exciting food. We’ve fallen in love with the great Mexican combination of rich, earthy flavors and casual, festive dining. But we don’t begin to imagine how sumptuous and varied the cooking of Mexico really is.

After ten years of loving exploration, Rick Bayless, together with his wife, Deann, gave us Authentic Mexican, this now classic, easy-to-use compendium of our southern neighbor’s cooking.

This all-embracing cookbook offers the full range of dishes, from poultry, meat, fish, rice, beans, and vegetables to eggs, snacks made of corn masa, tacos, turnovers, enchiladas and their relatives, tamales, and moles, ending with desserts, sweets, and beverages. There are irresistible finger foods such as Yucatecan marinated shrimp tacos and crispy cheese-filled masa turnovers; spicy corn chowder and chorizo sausage with melted cheese will start off a special dinner; you will find mole poblano, charcoal-grilled pork in red-chile adobo, and marinated fish steamed in banana leaves for those times when you want to celebrate; and exotic ice creams, caramel custards, and pies to top off any meal. There’s even a section devoted to refreshing coolers, rich chocolate drinks, and a variety of tequila-laced cocktails.

The master recipes feature all the pointers you’ll need for re-creating genuine Mexican textures and flavors in a North American kitchen. Menu suggestions and timing and advance-preparation tips make these dishes perfectly convenient for today’s working families. And traditional and contemporary variations accompany each recipe, allowing the cook to substitute and be creative.

Rick and Deann Bayless traveled more than thirty-five thousand miles investigating the six distinct regions of Mexico and learning to prepare what they found. From town to town, recipe by recipe, they personally introduce you to Mexico’s cooks, their kitchens, their markets, and their feasts.

If, like the rest of us, you have a growing love for Mexican food, the reliable recipes in this book and the caring, personal presentation by Rick and Deann Bayless will provide meal after meal of pure pleasure for your family and friends.

The Renegade Writer: A Totally Unconventional Guide to Freelance Writing Success

Let two veteran writers show you how to break the rules of freelancing to score the best assignments…and make more money!

You do what you’re told by the experts: You read six months of back issues before pitching ideas. You follow writer’s guidelines. You give editors eight weeks to respond to your queries. You never call editors, and you only interview sources when you’ve got the assignment. You’re doing everything “right,” but your bank account’s dialing 9-1-1.

For over 20 years Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell have broken the written (and unwritten) rules of freelancing, building successful careers and landing assignments with publications like Redbook, Writer’s Digest, Family Circle, Cook’s Illustrated, The Boston Globe, and more. They pitch magazines they’ve never read, call editors to pitch ideas, research extensively before they even get an assignment, and usually follow their own inclinations rather than the official directions. They’ve negotiated for more money and better terms without risking their careers, learned that editors are not the writer-gobbling monsters many freelancers fear, and established long-term relationships with editors at top publications. In The Renegade Writer, they’ll show you all their tips and tricks so you’ll become the go-to writer editors love.

When the first edition of The Renegade Writer was published in 2003, it helped thousands of magazine writers around the world find more (and better) ideas, break into new (or tough) markets, research and write their articles with more efficiency, and get paid more money…and showed them that the freelance life can be extremely profitable when they use their brains instead of a rule. This third edition includes new “rules” that freelancers should break, updates on the featured writers from our second edition, and new Q&As with successful rule-busting writers.

* #1 best-seller in journalism category on Amazon.com
* 4.5 of 5.0 stars average review on Amazon.com
* Well reviewed by Publishers Weekly, Investigative Reporters & Editors, The Writer, and Writer’s Digest.

The Best American Essays 2016

A true essay is “something hazarded, not definitive, not authoritative; something ventured on the basis of the author’s personal experience and subjectivity,” writes guest editor Jonathan Franzen in his introduction. However, his main criterion for selecting The Best American Essays 2016 was, in a word, risk. Whether the risks involved championing an unpopular opinion, the possibility of ruining a professional career, or irrevocably offending family, for Franzen, “the writer has to be like the firefighter, whose job, while everyone else is fleeing the flames, is to run straight into them.”

The Best American Essays 2016 includes ALEXANDER CHEE, PAUL CRENSHAW, JAQUIRA DÍAZ, LAURA KIPNIS, AMITAVA KUMAR, SEBASTIAN JUNGER,
JOYCE CAROL OATES, OLIVER SACKS, THOMAS CHATTERTON WILLIAMS and others
 
JONATHAN FRANZEN, guest editor, is the author of five novels, most recently Purity, and five works of nonfiction and translation, including Farther Away and The Kraus Project. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the German Akademie der Künste, and the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
 
ROBERT ATWAN, the series editor of The Best American Essays since its inception in 1986, has published on a wide variety of subjects, from American advertising and early photography to ancient divination and Shakespeare. His criticism, essays, humor, poetry, and fiction have appeared in numerous periodicals nationwide.
