Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly
When Chef Anthony Bourdain wrote "Don't Eat Before You Read This" in The New Yorker, he spared no one's appetite, revealing what goes on behind the kitchen door. In Kitchen Confidential, he expanded the appetizer into a deliciously funny, delectably shocking banquet that lays out his twenty-five years of sex, drugs, and haute cuisine.

From his first oyster in Gironda to the kitchen of the Rainbow Room atop Rockefeller Center, from the restaurants of Tokyo to the drug dealers of the East Village, from the mobsters to the rats, Bourdain's brilliantly written and wonderfully read, wild-but-true tales make the belly ache with laughter.

A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail
"Not long after I moved with my family to a small town in New Hampshire, I happened upon a path that vanished into a wood on the edge of town."

So begins Bill Bryson's hilarious book A Walk in the Woods.  Following his return to America after twenty years in Britain, Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his native country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail, which stretches from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine.  The AT, as it's affectionately known to thousands of hikers, offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes--and to a writer with the comic genius of Bill Bryson, it also provides endless opportunities to test his own powers of ineptitude, and to witness the majestic silliness of his fellow human beings.  

For a start, there's the gloriously out-of-shape Stephen Katz, a buddy from Iowa who accompanies the similarly unfit Bryson on the trail.  Once Bryson and Katz settle into their stride, it's not long before they come across the fabulously annoying Mary Ellen, whose disappearance ruins a perfectly good slice of pie, a gang of Ralph Lauren-attired yuppies from whom Katz appropriates a key piece of equipment, and a security guard in Pennsylvania who, for no ascertainable reason, impounds Bryson's car.  Mile by arduous mile these latter-day pioneers walk America, along the way surviving the threat of bear attacks, the loss of key provisions, and everything else this awe-inspiring country can throw at them.  

But A Walk in the Woods is more than just a laugh-out-loud hike.  Bryson's acute eye is a wise witness to this fragile and beautiful trail, and as he tells its fascinating history, he makes a moving plea for the conservation of America's last great wilderness.  An adventure, a comedy, a lament, and a celebration, A Walk in the Woods is destined to become a modern classic of travel literature.

Badgers In My Vest & Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Dog
Celebrating the genius of Dylan Thomas, these two productions shine very different lights on the renowned author. Badgers in my Vest is a darkly funny play by John Fletcher, based on a true incident in Thomas's life; Portrait of the Artist as a Young Dog features five short stories by Thomas himself, read by Welsh actors. Badgers in my Vest: Unfit to fight in World War II, Dylan Thomas spends his time in Newquay in the local pub, cadging drinks and being outrageous. Privately, he is terrified, suffering nightmares, and in the grip of writer's block. One night, a soldier comes in. Having found poetry a solace in the face of human brutality, he hopes to exchange views on beauty and truth with Thomas. Instead he is goaded to semi-hysteria and goes for his gun.. Portrait of an Artist as a Young Dog: 'Patricia, Edith and Arnold', read by Sian Phillips, 'A Visit to Grandpa's', read by Geraint Morgan, 'Extraordinary Little Cough', read by Iestyn Jones, 'The Followers', read by William Thomas and 'A Story', read by Matthew Rhys.

Travels with Charley in Search of America (Penguin Audio Classics)
An intimate journey across America, as told by one of its most beloved writers
 
To hear the speech of the real America, to smell the grass and the trees, to see the colors and the light—these were John Steinbeck's goals as he set out, at the age of fifty-eight, to rediscover the country he had been writing about for so many years.

With Charley, his French poodle, Steinbeck drives the interstates and the country roads, dines with truckers, encounters bears at Yellowstone and old friends in San Francisco. Along the way he reflects on the American character, racial hostility, the particular form of American loneliness he finds almost everywhere, and  the unexpected kindness of strangers.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent...guaranteed.)


The Lorax
