    Dear James: Letters to a Young Illustrator
    Author:   R.O. Blechman
    Genres:   Pop Culture
    Publisher:   Simon & Schuster (October 13, 2009)
    Renowned artist R. O. BLECHMAN'S illustrations are instantly recognizable. For more than fifty years, his work has appeared on the covers of The New Yorker, run alongside op-eds in The New York Times, graced the pages of Harper's Bazaar, and, more recently, been featured on The Huffington Post, providing unspoken commentary on the world at large. In Dear James, Blechman has compiled all the wisdom he has accumulated over the course of his esteemed career into a series of poignant yet instructive letters written to an imagined young illustrator, "James." The result is a wise and mesmerizing meditation on creativity.

    The Edge of Eden
    Author:   Helen Benedict
    Genres:   Literary Fiction | Humor/Satire
    Publisher:   Soho Press (October 19, 2010)
    Benedict (The Lonely Soldier) chronicles a year in the life of a foolish but surprisingly sympathetic British family that relocates to the equatorial paradise of the Seychelles, located between India and Africa. An armchair traveler's delight, Benedict's novel is an amusingly poignant look at the British abroad in the spirit of Evelyn Waugh.
