On the Plain of Snakes by Paul Theroux

The highly acclaimed novelist and master of travel writing Paul Theroux goes south in his latest chronicle to observe the rippling tensions around the U.S.–Mexico border. Beginning in the town of Nogales—separated by a 40-foot steel fence—and traveling further into Mexico, Theroux explores the people and culture and the atrocities that occur on both sides of the border. On the Plain of Snakes is a testament to Theroux’s skill as a travel writer. - Aric

The Gaijin Cookbook by Ivan Orkin

As a California white girl mildly obsessed with Japan, I couldn’t be more excited for a book entitled The Gaijin Cookbook. The fact that it comes from Ivan Orkin, renowned New York ramen chef who spent decades in Tokyo, and Chris Ying, whom I’ve followed since the first issue of Lucky Peach, means I’m already heating up my stove and anxiously refreshing Instagram for new peeks of this accessible cookbook for anyone in love with Japanese food. - Jocelyn

True to its name, this cookbook has taught me how to cook every kind of meatless delight, from homemade veggie burgers that taste better than any restaurant’s, to pizza dough, stir fries, and stuffed zucchinis.

Great for beginner chefs and fledglings ready to stretch their wings! - Jess

Queer Eye, for those not already completely obsessed like me, is the most wonderfully encouraging and radically empathetic makeover show to ever exist.

This book is full of wonderful recipes for any food lover in your life. Antoni has the incredible ability to teach even a novice chef how to make wonderful hors d’oeuvres and prove to more advanced chefs that even the simplest of dishes don’t have to taste simplistic. - Nicole

Alexander and Nelson have created a perfect book that invites readers to truly feel. Every word is necessary, every illustration is just what it needs to be (even when it’s nothing at all). It’s a testament to the black experience in the United States that comes together in a central message: Black. Lives. Matter. Beautiful, heartrending, hopeful, true, and easily the best book of the year. - Stephanie

*And Casey says: “A new classic. Undeniably powerful. Black Lives Matter in poetry.”
