With her passion for fine food and, above all, her appetite for love and life, Gael Greene traces her rise from a Velveeta cocoon in the Midwest to powerful critic of New York magazine. Love and food, foreplay and fork play, haute cuisine and social history--all become inextricably linked as the author lifts the lid on her most provocative subject yet--herself. Along the way there are tales of her saucy erotic adventures and intimate portraits of the culinary icons of our time--Julia Child, André Soltner, James Beard, among others--and revealing dissections of New York's legendary "in" spots, including Elaine's, Le Bernardin, Le Cirque, Odeon, and Balthazar.

An eloquent, thoughtful text is interwoven with and set to equally passionate music in this exploration of the most important week in the Christian calendar-Holy Week and Easter. As the "hosannas fade in crucify", we are led to wonder what we might have done, what we might have said, had we been there. What would our reaction have been to the shadow of the cross or the shock of the empty tomb? It is good to wonder, but it is better to know that because of the events of Holy Week, life eternal is the promise. For that, Christ paid the ultimate price, so that on Easter Sunday, all Christians can respond to the traditional Easter greeting, "The Lord Is Risen", with the affirmative response, "He is Risen Indeed!" From the quiet moments of introspection at the Lord's table to the terrible agony of the cross, and culminating with the joyous resurrection, this cantata is a moderately easy, yet completely satisfying and inspirational implement for worship. Indeed, He Is Risen!

Can Britain make room for wildlife? Stephen Moss believes it can. The newspaper headlines tell us that Britain’s wildlife is in trouble. Wild creatures that have lived here for thousands of years are disappearing, because of pollution and persecution, competition with alien species, changing farming and forestry practices, and climate change. It’s not just rare creatures such as the Scottish wildcat or the red squirrel that are vanishing. Hares and hedgehogs, skylarks and water voles, even the humble house sparrow, are in freefall. But there is also good news. In Newcastle, otters have returned to the river Tyne and red kites are flying over the Metro centre; in Devon, there are beavers on the River Otter; and peregrines – the fastest living creature on the planet – have taken up residence in the heart of London. Elsewhere in the British countryside things are changing too. What were once nature-free zones are being ‘rewilded’; giving our wild creatures the space they need – not just to survive, but also to thrive. Stephen Moss has travelled the length and breadth of the UK, from the remote archipelago of St Kilda to our inner cities, to witness at first hand how our wild creatures are faring, and offers us this complex, heartfelt and often unexpected response.
