A very happy publication day to Toni Morrison and Nora Pouillon!
God Help the Child by Toni Morrison
Spare and unsparing, God Help the Child—the first novel by Toni Morrison to be set in our current moment—weaves a tale about the way the sufferings of childhood can shape, and misshape, the life of the adult.
“Powerful … attests to her ability to write intensely felt chamber pieces that inhabit a twilight world between fable and realism, and to convey the desperate yearnings of her characters for safety and love and belonging … Writing with gathering speed and assurance as the book progresses, Ms. Morrison works her narrative magic, turning the Ballad of Bride and Booker into a tale that is as forceful as it is affecting, as fierce as it is resonant.” —Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
My Organic Life by Nora Pouillon
A wonderfully engaging memoir from the woman who founded America’s first certified organic restaurant, My Organic Life is the story of an unheralded culinary pioneer who made it her mission to bring delicious, wholesome foods to the American table.
This organic bench of walnut and ash by Italian studio Rota Lab curves around its setting to stretch high into a nearby ceiling aperture, creating a nook for the homeowner’s pets as it winds upward. It was carved entirely from hand and unsurprisingly, was inspired by natural and organic shapes.
