Girl Cook: A Novel
Called “a deliciously modern Cinderella story of love, sex, chefs and the city,” this first novel is all about Cordon Bleu graduate Layla Mitchner and her trials and tribulations both in Manhattan’s dating world and in its restaurant kitchens. Layla, a character developed with humor and more than a dash of sass, may not be to everybody’s taste, but she certainly makes a lasting impression on the reader. The author, who resides in Brooklyn, is herself a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu as well as Columbia University’s writing program. She has cooked in numerous restaurant kitchens and her writing has appeared in numerous places as well. More ...

Religious Pluralism in America: The Contentious History of a Founding Ideal
William R. Hutchison '51, a professor at Harvard's Divinity School, is the author of Religious Pluralism in America: The Contentious History of a Founding Ideal, an "ambitious reappraisal of American religious history." In the book, Hutchison chronicles the historical developments that have gradually led Americans to go beyond mere tolerance of religious differences to the actual acceptance of religious diversity. An illumniating volume, scholarly but written with a clarity that makes it readily accessible to the general reader, it welcomes the "new pluralism" as a work in progress towards fulfillment of one of the nation's founding ideals.

Closing Argument: Defending (and Befriending) John Gotti and Other Legal Battles I Have Waged
Bruce Cutler '70 is the author of Closing Argument: Defending (and Befriending) John Gotti and Other Legal Battles I Have Waged. The book is an autobiography of Cutler, who became one of the most famous lawyers in America through his defense of mob boss John Gotti. Although Gotti threatens to overpower the book, it would be a great mistake to dismiss it as primarily centered on the "Teflon Don." Cutler also tells of his early upbringing, his days at Hamilton and his practice of the lawyer's craft, in addition to his insider accounts of high-profile criminal trials. More ...
Physiology and the Literary Imagination: Romantic to Modern
John Gordon '67 is the author of Phisiology and the Literary Imagination: Romantic to Modern, an impressive scholarly study, unique in its approach, which explores the impact of medical developments on writers including Wordsworth, Dickens, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Eliot, Joyce, Dylan Thomas and Sylvia Plath, as reflected in their works. By painstakingly analyzing their writings, Gordon, a professor of English at Connecticut College, casts new light on literary inspiration in seven significant authors spanning almost two centuries. More ...
Debating the Kennedy Presidency
Stephen Rabe, whose publications include three monographs on U.S. relations with Latin America, is a professor of history at the University of Texas at Dallas. In this work, he joins with James N. Giglio, a professor of history at Southwest Missouri State University, in examining the foreign policy of John F. Kennedy and its legacy. In their respective essays, to which pertinent documents are appended, they offer challenging interpretations and provocative views. Although they agree on some points, Professor Giglio largely defends the Kennedy record while Professor Rabe is more critical, depicting Kennedy as “a relentless cold warrior who perpetuated the Cold War more than he resolved it.” The book is ideal for stimulating discussion both in and outside of the classroom. More ...

Is This Heaven? The Magic of the Field of Dreams
Brett H. Mandel '91 is the author of Is This Heaven? The Magic of the Field of Dreams, about the some 75,000 people a year who make a pilgrimage to the baseball diamond carved out of a northeast Iowa cornfield for the 1989 film Field of Dreams. Why do they do it? Mandel addresses that question by relating the stories, often poignant, of those who seek, and frequently find, comfort, fulfillment and even redemption at that make-believe place, which has somehow taken on mystical reality.
