Boozehound

Boozehound

Part travel diary, part investigative reporting, part recipe book, and wholly entertaining, Boozehound ($16) is quite the read for any sauce-loving creature. Written by Jason Wilson, spirits writer for The Washington Post, this 240-page hardback chronicles Wilson's adventures in Europe and the Americas as he searches for the answers to such primal questions as why we drink what we drink and where does it come from, all while offering up simple yet obscure recipes using the hooch described in each chapter.

  • Stranded

    What would you do if you were stuck in an airport for days due to a huge volcanic ash cloud? If you're like the makers of Stranded ($19), you'd contribute to a magazine. This one-off magazine is the brain child of US-based writer Andrew Losowsky, who came up with the idea while stranded in Dublin, and called on other designers, writers, photographers, and other professionals stranded by the Icelandic ash cloud to contribute. The result is a unique look at a singular moment in time that will likely never come again.

  • The Book of Bastards

    Any country that's lasted a hundred years or more has no doubt seen a few scandals, and the US of A is no exception. The Book of Bastards ($10) chronicles 101 of the most egregious scandals — and the people behind them — from America's first 234 years, including long-forgotten indiscretions by men such as Presidents Grover Cleveland and Warren G. Harding, traitors like General Wilkinson, and possible turncoats like Daniel Ellsberg. This would have made Coach Hall's American History class infinitely more interesting.
