NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The darkly suspenseful tale of two families struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives—all over the course of one meal. Now a major motion picture. “Chilling, nasty, smart, shocking, and unputdownable.”—Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl It’s a summer’s evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food and over the scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile and every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act—an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children, and as civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple shows just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love. A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK “A European Gone Girl . . . A sly psychological thriller.”—The Wall Street Journal “Brilliantly engineered . . . The novel is designed to make you think twice, then thrice, not only about what goes on within its pages, but also the next time indignation rises up, pure and fiery, in your own heart.”—Salon “You’ll eat it up, with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.”—Entertainment Weekly “[Koch] has created a clever, dark confection . . . absorbing and highly readable.”—New York Times Book Review “Tongue-in-cheek page-turner.”—The Washington Post “[A] deliciously Mr. Ripley-esque drama.”—O: The Oprah Magazine

Grace, love and communion are always Apostle Paul's closing prayer for every church he wrote to, the question however is "what is this communion?" Why do we do "Holy Communion"? How are we to relate with the Holy Spirit? Why should it be a communion of the Holy Spirit and not the Father or the Son? Really, the benediction is deeper than what we just recite, close from believers' gatherings and go our different ways. It is all that believers are called into. The Dinner is the third in the exposition on 2 Corinthians 13:14 after "Grace", And "Love, the Lover, and the loved.

Judy Chicago's monumental art installation The Dinner Party was an immediate sensation when it debuted in 1979, and today it is considered the most popular work of art to emerge from the second-wave feminist movement. Jane F. Gerhard examines the piece's popularity to understand how ideas about feminism migrated from activist and intellectual circles into the American mainstream in the last three decades of the twentieth century. More than most social movements, feminism was transmitted and understood through culture--art installations, Ms. Magazine, All in the Family, and thousands of other cultural artifacts. But the phenomenon of cultural feminism came under extraordinary criticism in the late 1970s and 1980s Gerhard analyzes these divisions over whether cultural feminism was sufficiently activist in light of the shifting line separating liberalism from radicalism in post-1970s America. She concludes with a chapter on the 1990s, when The Dinner Party emerged as a target in political struggles over public funding for the arts, even as academic feminists denounced the piece for its alleged essentialism. The path that The Dinner Party traveled--from inception (1973) to completion (1979) to tour (1979-1989) to the permanent collection of the Brooklyn Museum (2007)--sheds light on the history of American feminism since 1970 and on the ways popular feminism in particular can illuminate important trends and transformations in the broader culture.

"I'd always thought food was pretty straightforward: you're hungry, you eat; you're not, you don't. Then I became a mother." So begins Betsy Block's humorous, life-changing book on the ultimate of all makeovers: improving the family meal. But how is her plan even possible when eleven-year old Zack's favorite food is Halloween candy; little Maya is so picky that she'll only eat cut squares of white bread; and her husband's idea of a gift is an electric fryer? Determined not to give up the good-food fight, Betsy comes up with a creative ten-step makeover plan. She consults experts, visits farms, and shows how she and her family manage the pitfalls, struggles, and triumphs of eating well when busy schedules, surreptitious lunch trades, snack machines, permissive grandparents, and willful temptations intervene. With helpful charts, food lists, recipes, tips, and suggested culinary and farm programs for kids, The Dinner Diaries chronicles one family's intrepid ten-month challenge to change the way they eat—one forkful at a time.

THE DINNER JACKET POEMS the CHANTILCLEER POET JEFF WAYNE-PATRICK RUSSELL Jeff Wayne-Patrick Russell aka the Chantilcleer poet starts his Dinner Jacket Poems with a boyhood visit to his grandmother’s apartment in Glendale, CA where he’s fascinated by the Knockittttty, knock knocks of woodpeckers pecking on telephone poles in her neighborhood. With “yells of silence” he takes us on a quest to the “streets of Gold” where he “dreams of a Coliseum in Eternity.” The pilgrim does not travel alone. There are desert paths to be sure where “a snake slithers past the moon, leaving them both to crawl home to caves and holes.” But there are also Happy Hour epiphanies where a margarita dancer shares with him a glimpse of her beauty and moments of “sarcastic bliss among friends over a’ good-beer.” There are times the quester needs to be in solitude: “And if you want to talk to me Find me In person Maybe Australia” There are times he seeks solidarity with a significant other: “ohhhhhhhh Lord your girllllllllllllllllllllll – for... meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee” When she’s found and “Reeling and rocking as our flame grows – higher than others” he leads “Make our flame last.” My favorite poem of his near the end of the book is ME...AND DECIBEL TETON...where “lying on a stone” he drinks from a cactus and with gaze fixed upon a spiraling hawk pleads “Hawk, stay long, Hawk, stay long Hawk circling, Circling Hawk Return me to myself.” I couldn’t agree more.
