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 ...

The contributors explore the ideologies of welfare and American meritocracy that promise hope and autonomy on the one hand, while also perpetuating economic obstacles and indebtedness on the other.

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.

Twice a year members of the educated elite and officials in each area gathered to offer sacrifices to Confucius, his disciples, and the major scholars of the Confucian tradition. More ...
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 ...
