After the Tall Timber: Collected Nonfiction

After the Tall Timber: Collected Nonfiction
by Renata Adler

A writer for the New Yorker for nearly four decades, Adler has brought together various articles, film reviews, and writing on politics and media from throughout her career in After the Tall Timber. This collection includes dispatches from Selma, Alabama, writing on the Vietnam war, Nixon's impeachment, pop culture, and everything in between. Necessary reading for anyone interested in Adler as either a journalist, essayist, or novelist.

So You've Been Publicly Shamed

So You've Been Publicly Shamed
by Jon Ronson

Ronson, the author of bestsellers like The Psychopath Test, spent three years tailing the recipients of public shamings, people who's lives were turned upside down by ill-advised tweets and comments made without thinking (or, worse, ones fully thought out). The book chronicles the intense consequences of their shaming, the effect it has had on their lives, and the effectiveness of this form of social control.


by Oana Avasilichioaei

Montreal-based poet and translator Avasilichioaei combines brooding photographs, contemplative poems, and astute translations of Romanian poet Paul Celan in Limbinal, her newest collection. Linguistics, physical movement, and their intersection are explored, made beautiful by a skilled artist.

Milk Bar Life

Milk Bar Life
by Christina Tosi

Tosi, of Momofuku Milk Bar fame, tells stories, spins yarns, and cooks up a storm in her latest cookbook, Milk Bar Life. There are recipes handed down from friends and family, dishes inspired by everyday grocery store purchases, and food enjoyed by the Milk Bar family, an ever-growing group working at the seven locations in New York and Toronto. Throughout, Tosi gives context, tips, and sprinkles it all with charm.

The Goldfinch

The Goldfinch
by Donna Tartt
