Rasika is both a new cookbook and its namesake restaurant, yet the cookbook is not too intimidating for home cooks. The recipes often use familiar ingredients to introduce an American audience to Indian flavors, there are plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, and I love the practical tips on what to make ahead and what reheats well.

I had chills the entire time I read this beautiful, beautiful book (Ramírez's art is stunning). I was caught up following La Música and the little boy the music loved. The book is inspired by Pixar's Coco, but the book completely stands out on its own. [Kenny]

Published: Harper - November 14th, 2017

One of my favorite writers writes her first dystopian work. I understand why it's compared to The Handmaid's Tale (for addressing reproductive rights) but it is its own thing. It's so good: so brutal, so honest, so honoring of women and indigenous people, so real. [Kenny]

Short, clear, on point. It's only a pocketful of book, but a powerful one. We need a little history in order to see the possible paths ahead, and a few steps in order to make our way, in politics and in life. This illuminating report provides both. [Raissa]

I know-what interest does a PNWer have in the umbrella? If you're a literary nerd, trust me: get this book, or gift this to someone who is. From Dickens to Derrida, from status symbol to emblem of impoverishment, Rankine's tour of all things brolly is dutifully researched and so much fun. [Tanya]
