    In this captivating double life, Adam Gopnik (Paris to the Moon) searches for the men behind the icons of emancipation and evolution. Born by cosmic conincidence on the same day in 1809 and separated by an ocean, Lincoln and Darwin coauthored our sense of history and our understanding of humankind's place in the world. Here, Gopnik reveals these two men as they really were: family men and social climbers, ambitious manipulators and courageous adventurers, grieving parents & brilliant scholars. Above all, we observe and absorb them as thinkers and writers, marking the great changes in thought that characterize truly modern times. With a Biographical Note. 235p.

    The soul of the Western World as we know it today is one which owes a great debt to a single day in 1809 in which two men, divided by an ocean, were brought into the world: Charles Darwin and Abraham Lincoln. While their lasting influences were often considered unpopular in their day the legendary concepts of evolution and personal freedom have forever altered our lives. In 'Angels and Ages' award-winning author Adam Gopnik provides readers with an illuminating portrait of these two men and the spirits of endurance, and willful curiosity, which pushed them forward as family men, public figures, and as the intrepid and influential innovators who spoke for us all.

    Part memoir, part city guide, this gossipy history follows a well known food critic through restaurants’ births, growths, and occasional failures. Updated to include today’s rising culinary stars, the narrative traces how the restaurant business became show business and how the tycoons, artists, dilettantes, journeymen cooks, gastronomical junkies, and ambitious entrepreneurs transformed Toronto into a food-lovers haven. Fortunes are made and lost, reputations built and squandered—and this story tells it all from the head table’s perspective.

    From the author of Paris to the Moon, a beguiling tour of the morals and manners of our present food mania, in search of eating’s deeper truths. Never before have we cared so much about food. It preoccupies our popular culture, our fantasies, and even our moralizing. With our top chefs as deities and finest restaurants as places of pilgrimage, we have made food the stuff of secular seeking and transcendence, finding heaven in a mouthful. But have we come any closer to discovering the true meaning of food in our lives? With inimitable charm and learning, Adam Gopnik takes us on a beguiling journey in search of that meaning as he charts America’s recent and rapid evolution from commendably aware eaters to manic, compulsive gastronomes.

    The author of Paris to the Moon and Through the Children’s Gate, among others, takes readers on a beguiling journey in search of the true meaning of food in our lives as he charts America’s recent and rapid evolution from commendably aware eaters to manic, compulsive gastronomes. It is a journey that begins in eighteenth-century France – the birthplace of our modern tastes (and, by no coincidence, of the restaurant) – and carries readers to the kitchens of the White House, the molecular meccas of Barcelona, and beyond. To understand why so many of us apparently live to eat, Gopnik delves into the most burning questions of our time, including: Should a Manhattanite bother to find chicken killed in the Bronx? Is a great vintage really any better than a good bottle of wine? And: Why does dessert matter so much? Throughout, Gopnik reminds us of a time-honored truth often lost amid our newfound gastronomic pieties and certitudes: What goes on the table has never mattered as much to our lives as what goes on around the table – the scene of families, friends, lovers coming together, or breaking apart; conversation across the simplest or grandest board. This, ultimately, is whom Gopnick discovers, and affirms, we are. 293p.
