Cortadito

By Enrique Fernández

AN EXILE AND THE FLAVORS OF HIS NATIVE LAND

In the sprawling Cortadito, Enrique Fernández explores Cuban cuisine through memories of growing up on the pre-revolutionary island.  In his sensual journey through the origin and evolution of staples of Cuban food, Fernández wonders what shapes flavor: is it the soil or the community—whether at home or abroad? As an exile, he affirms, “I will continue to sample the crumbs that fall from [Cuba’s] table and be thankful and resentful at the same time.”

Enrique Fernández’s Pretty to Think So weaves questions of sex, mortality, and identity with a lyricism that readers will not soon forget.

A Bright Clean Mind

By

#1 New Release in Art Instruction ― Explore the Connection Between Diet and Creativity

If you liked Brain FoodBreaking the Habit of Being Yourself or Grain Brain, you’ll love A Bright Clean Mind.

Vegan Food is Everywhere: When people ask how author and certified vegan lifestyle coach Camille DeAngelis feels satisfied on a vegan diet, she thinks of the moment in James and the Giant Peach when the Grasshopper and the Centipede fret that they have nothing to eat until James points out that they're traveling inside an enormous piece of fruit. There is plenty, Camille reminds us in A Bright Clean Mind, a self-help motivational book for artists and creatives. Everything we could ever want to eat, and more, is all around us.

Imagine a Better Life: Because we live in a culture in which the eating and wearing of animals is taken for granted, we rarely recognize our limiting meat-centric mindset. But if we can employ our imagination to create worlds from scratch, we can surely use our imaginative power to envision a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the animals we eat. On the other side of this brain transformation is a lifestyle that is ideal for our own health and emotional well-being and is much more environmentally sustainable.

Improve Your Work Flow: Camille believes that creative hobbies and habits reinvigorate one's primary work. But she knits, sews, embroiders, and bakes for the pleasure of it, too. Her productivity and brain power have been remarkable since going vegan seven years ago, and even more importantly, she no longer feels any of the frustration or uncertainty artists tend to accept as part of the creative process.

A Bright Clean Mind is perfect for every creative suffering from brain fog. In this book, you will discover:

  • The effect your diet may be having on your creativity and mood
  • Examples of how going vegan is basically giving yourself brain food
  • Ways to incorporate a vegan diet into your busy life

Drink Like a Geek

By

Drink Like a Geek marries Jeff’s twin passions for alcohol and geek culture: in the early 2000s, Jeff directed two documentaries about Star Wars Episode I (the first in the build-up to its release, and the second after fans realized it sucked). There will be cocktail recipes throughout Drink Like a Geek — interpretations of Miruvor of Middle Earth, Dornish Red and Arbor Gold of Westeros, etc. — but the emphasis will be more on getting to know various subcultures than in genre recipe books like The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy. That emphasis should be clear in the intro chapter included at the end of the proposal, which is about an experience Jeff had crossing enemy lines and drinking Romulan Ale at Dragon*Con in Atlanta
