L’Appart: The Delights and Disasters of Making My Paris Home by David Lebovitz
To be released in early November, Lebovitz’s latest book from Paris is poised to be a humorous and subtle account of life abroad. An ex-pat (chef and food writer) who has made Paris his home for nearly twenty years, Lebovitz sets out to remodel his apartment but is confronted with a befuddling mix of red tape and culture shock over European work ethic and hours. Lebovitz weaves the renovation story together with recipes, and thoughts on building a life abroad.
Arthur: The Dog Who Crossed the Jungle to Find a Home by Mikael Lindnord
You probably saw Arthur on your Facebook feed or perhaps ESPN. He’s the little tan terrier that followed Mikael Lindnord and his Swedish adventure racing team through 435 miles of Amazon jungle. At first the team tried to discourage Arthur from following them, but eventually they realized he’d become a member of the team. Together they crossed raging rivers, battled injuries, and formed and inseparable bond. When they finished the race, Lindnord began a new battle to bring Arthur home. Arthur will be released today, September 12th.
