Preservation Society Home Preserves: 100 Modern Recipes

Preservation Society Home Preserves: 100 Modern Recipes
by Camilla Wynne

Montreal-based preserves maven Camilla Wynne is a former indie rock musician who has experience in some of the top restaurant kitchens in North America.

Remedy Quarterly #17: Taste

Remedy Quarterly #17: Taste

The new issue of the San Francisco-based independent food journal focuses on taste. We meet an 11-year old girl whose tastes are unusually adventurous. We learn about how to taste with other people’s palettes, how to overcome aversions to certain foods, how to make Pozole Blanco and a Floral Strawberry Float, and more!

New Lovers erotic fiction series

New Lovers erotic fiction series

The first three titles of the anticipated new erotic literature series New Lovers have been released, successfully telling—to hear the Paris Review tell it—stories "for a new generation’s sexual imagination." The novels, all written by women, range in topic (one chronicling a menage relationship between best friends, another a queen's re-seduction of her king) but all offer a new twist on smut.

Rebel Rebel

Rebel Rebel
by Chris O’Leary

Both David Bowie's persona and discography are lovingly catalogued in Rebel Rebel, a look at the artist's output from 1964 to 1976. Exploring his huge oeuvre and his literary, film, and musical influences, music blogger O'Leary uncovers the singer/songwriter who, for all his cultural impact, remains a mystery.

Angry Youth Comix

Angry Youth Comix
by Johnny Ryan

Fans of Johnny Ryan’s famously offensive cartoons will rejoice at this new hardcover collection of all his Angry Youth Comix (2000-2008), replete with juvenilia, semen jokes, and other forms of alarming humour.
