Acclaimed restaurant critic Gael Greene dishes up a delectable memoir-complete with her favorite recipes-from a lifelong love affair with food, men, and wine. In 1968, Gael Greene became the restaurant critic of the fledgling New York magazine. Before taking the job, she'd never written a restaurant review in her life. But she was a passionate foodie, and dining in the world's great restaurants on someone else's dime was too enticing to resist. Thus began a remarkable career charting the restaurants that changed the way Americans ate, the chefs who turned cooking into an art form, and the food and wines that launched a culinary revolution. Throughout it all, Gael is convinced that food and sex are inextricably linked, and in this exuberant account of her adventures in sensuous excess, she takes readers on a joyride from the world's best tables, to al fresco lunch with Julia Child and naughty dinners with Craig Claiborne and then to bed with the men she couldn't resist-including a porn star and two Hollywood titans. The recipes she includes reflect the decades, from childhood macaroni-and-cheese to Chocolate Wickedness. Greene's tale of pleasure and heartbreak will make you laugh. It may make you cry. It will certainly make you hungry.

Hurling our financial markets through tempests of speculation, driving our businesses into practices of simultaneous austerity (for those on the bottom) and lavish expenditure (for those on the top), and flying high as a banner for outspoken bankers, brokers, and politicians alike has been a prevailing ethos: greed is good. In this book, Stuart Sim calls for an end to this madness, exposing the massively damaging effects that greed has had on both public and private life and showing how the actions of a socially irresponsible “greedocracy” have systematically undermined our democratic institutions. Ranging across politics, economic theory, finance, healthcare, the food industry, sports, religion, and the arts, Sim demonstrates how deeply embedded the greed imperative is in human psychology. As he shows, all of us as individuals are capable of greed—usually in small and insignificant ways—but some embrace it to the extreme, and moreover it has thrived as a powerful force in our wider culture and institutions, asserting itself everywhere we go. The food industry encourages us to overeat. The medical industry has increasingly been driven by profits rather than well-being. Corporations hypocritically claim fiscal responsibility, driving down workers’ wages while paying executives—even those who drive the business into the ground—record sums. Looking at larger phenomena such as the increasing wealth gap and exponential population growth, Sim also proffers various ways we can deal with greed in our day-to-day lives. And as he shows, we must deal with it. Insatiable is a wakeup call to recognize the horrible effects that greed is having on our relationships, institutions, cultures, environment—even on our own bodies—and that we must resist it wherever we can.

I didn’t expect a phone call to crack the bedrock of my life. How easy it is to forget we are all floating on molten lava...and tectonic shifts happen all the time... Carlos was the one who felt my phone vibrating; it was under one of the napkins we'd used for our picnic lunch. I found it, and glancing quickly at the "UNKNOWN" on the caller ID, picked it up. While used to calls from unknown places, I was not used to calls from this guy. "Sydney, how are you?" I didn't recognize his voice right away. Rolling away from Carlos, I sat up. "I'm sorry, but I don't know who this is." It was when he laughed that I recognized him. “Robert Maxim?" He laughed again. "I'm glad you remember me. My heart would be broken if I could be so easily forgotten." I stood up, Carlos looked up at me, a question in his eyes. I shook my head and stepped away from our blanket. My dog, Blue, a huge wolf-like creature with one blue eye and one brown followed me, keeping at a heel. "Forget you, Bobby Maxim? In order to do that I'd need a lobotomy." "With your penchant for revenge, I half expect to see you bursting through my closet doors some day, guns blazing." I laughed. "Who says I'm not in there right now?" "I know exactly where you are. I've been keeping very good track of you." I looked around the park. Gentle green hills spotted with couples and groups of friends lounging on blankets dominated the landscape. On a field below me a soccer match was beginning to form. A woman ran by in a skin-tight suit, nothing on her jiggled. "Are you here now?" "No, no. I'm calling to ask a favor." Carlos waved, letting me know he was going to join the soccer game. I nodded back, forcing a smile onto my lips. "I'm not doing you any favors,” I said to Robert. “It seems you're not totally clear on the fact that you took something from me." "Sydney, I don't understand this animosity. I was just doing you a favor." "A favor!" My raised voice attracted the attention of several groups of Londoners trying to enjoy their first day of sun. "You bastard," I hissed quietly. "I hope you rot in hell." "I'm sorry I didn't do it sooner, darling." "You're insane!" I was yelling again. I took a deep breath. In through my nose, out through my mouth. Blue tapped his muzzle against my hip to let me know he was still there. "Sydney, I didn't know what you two had planned. I would have killed Kurt long before you showed up. Remember, I'm not the one who left my fingerprints behind; whose blood was spilled all over the floor. You took yourself down, it had nothing to do with me." He said it in an off-hand way. Like I was being petty and missing the big picture. "You killed him," I whispered, trying to control my anger, but I was shaking. "That was my right. Kurt Jessup murdered my brother and I should have been the one to end him." "At the time I had no idea about that. Mulberry didn't tell me what you were planning, just that we had a problem. I had no intention of stifling your little revenge act. If anyone should be pissed it's me. At least you got the treasure." I stood on the green feeling lightheaded. It was like Bobby Maxim was taking the world and flipping it upside down. "What are you talking about? Mulberry told you that?" "Oh Cher, you didn't know?" Maxim's voice rose an octave, teasing and dripping with syrup. A cold knowledge traveled from my toes right up to my brain. My best friend betrayed me, our relationship was built on a lie. P.S. The dog does not die. **Beware: If you can’t handle a few f-bombs, you can’t handle this series.**

Bill 'EL Wingador' Simmons, Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas, David 'Coondog' O'Karma, Bill 'EL Wingador' Simmons, Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas, David 'Coondog' O'Karma, Eric 'Badlands' Booker, Timothy 'Eater X' Janus - just a few of the stars of one of America's fastest growing sports: competitive eating. In a country in which a third of the population is clinically obese, competitive eating has made the leap from trestle tables and paper napkins to stadium arenas - in the past two years, more than 1.4 million households have tuned in to Nathan's hot dog contest on ESPN. Beginning with a trip to Japan in search of the elusive (and surprising slim-line) champion Takeru Kobayashi and ending up at the sport's annual grand finale in Coney Island, Jason Fagone spends a year with the stars of the scene, watching as they eat their way into (or out of) oblivion, and finding out just what compels a 'gurgitator' to force down forty-six dozen oysters in ten minutes. Wickedly funny and devastatingly insightful, Jason Fagone uses this weirdest of sports as a lens through which to examine the dark side of the American Dream - the never-ending quest for wealth, celebrity, possessions and food. And along the way, he uncovers the wonderfully human stories at the heart of this seemingly unnourished corner of American culture. Bigger, better, richer, fatter, Insatiable unlocks a world we all need to face up to. Dig In.

A sweeping novel of suspense and intrigue-played out against the glamorous playgrounds of the rich; starring a beautiful and mysterious woman who leaves a path of death and destruction in her wake. Jacqueline du Fidelio is a portrait painter with an international reputation and a dark secret in her past. Loyal only to her butler, closest friend, and confidant, the snobbish, neurotic, and completely amoral Nigel Weatherby-Smith, Jacqueline is fiercely independent--until it comes to affairs of the heart. Her penchant for toxic romantic involvements draws her to the worst kinds of men-from the rakishly unreliable and very married Ryder McCormick, her mother's former lover who has enthralled her since childhood, to Armand Weil, a debonair, fabulously wealthy art dealer who sweeps her off her feet, promises to take care of her forever, and deserts her at the worst possible moment. Junior Hammond, the sybaritic, obese, and uncultured heir to the Hammond oil fortune, finally succeeds in winning her hand in marriage. But like Jacqueline's other liaisons, the romance is soon wrapped in deadly shadows as members of the Hammond family begin to die in mysterious ways whenever Jacqueline is on the scene. Is Jacqueline the innocent victim of careless, uncaring men and circumstances beyond her control, or is she a dangerous manipulator, ruthlessly using her lovers to ensure her own survival? Does her apparent fragility actually mask a cold, lethal core, an insatiable need to prove her invulnerability? Taking readers from the lush hunt country of Virginia to New York City's glamorous art world, from the winter wonderland of Aspen, Colorado to the treacherous mountains of Nepal, Insatiable builds to almost unbearable suspense. It is only in the stunning final pages that we discover the terrible secret that haunts Jacqueline-and may have turned her into a killer.

I am Kitten. Watch me play! They call me Kitten. I’m their plaything, and I love it. I thrive on it. I need it. Why? It’s like an itch I can’t quite scratch. A craving that doesn’t take away the hunger. A compulsion that I can’t control. It’s all-consuming in every way. I thought I’d come to terms with how my future looked. Meaningless sex. Lots and lots of meaningless sex. Bodies writhing, skin slapping, moans filling the air. It’s who I am, and I don’t allow myself to think too much about how I’ll never have a normal relationship.

When a ghost from my past sends me spiralling, any sort of control over my ailment is lost, and I find myself walking the dark path of self-destruction. No one knows the depravity of my past.

If that isn’t bad enough, my ex has his sights set on me again, a playful friend steps over the line with me, and another brooding mate is seething with anger at me. Rightfully so, since all four of them are best mates, and shit is going to hit the fan if my ex finds out what’s been going on behind his back. Throw in a sex club run by predators posing as high-class citizens, a contract that I signed when I was way too young to understand the fine print, and a man who is fifteen years older than me, which has me bratting it up all over the place, and my existence is on a path to fuckery.

"Beautiful, engaging, and decadent. Mila's struggle with her nature and the loss of her people is so spectacularly written that her pain is your pain. There might even be a time or two you, like her, are tempted to give in to the smoldering temptation the alluring and indomitable Asher proposes. FIVE STARS!!!" -Addison Cain, USA Today Bestselling Author “Without your power, you are nothing.” His lips hovered too close, scant millimeters from… more. “You don’t know how lucky you are to be mine.” They came to conquer, to see the great city of Tritan on her knees. Her people in chains. I watched it all burn from a seat of untouchable power. Safe in the many arms of the forest as my heart charred black and the darkness took root. My sacred calling to a dead Goddess rejected, I am sustained by the forest's ancient, sleepy strength. Fed by wild ki, the whispers are soothed. The urge to savage the conquerors lays dormant, for not even he can touch me here, where my every whim is law. But Captain Asher Rawlings is a resourceful man, and though it’s been years since he’s so much as set eyes upon my face, he hasn’t given up the hunt for a rare and dangerous thing. He wants me. And he’ll never stop. Not until my knees are sullied and my skin is marked—and my limitless power belongs to him. But no matter how many times I fall, or how much I lose, he refuses to see the truth of the monster he's unleashed... After all... he's given me a thirst for vengeance...

Do you remember a time before computers? AIDS? smartphones? social media? Can you recall when disco reigned supreme? smoking was common? young women hung out in hip-hugger, bell-bottom bluejeans and halter tops? you made calls on a payphone? Can you flash back to toking up, snorting coke, drinking excessively, and dancing the night away? If these scenes seem familiar, perhaps you came of age during the sixties and seventies. If that’s so, this exposé of the author’s experiences and misadventures will resonate and help you follow memory’s lane into a less cynical, simpler time when bad things didn’t seem to have as long-lasting effects as they do today. You interacted, as the author did, with real people, face-to-face, in real time. This explicit memoir provides an entertaining, sometimes heart-wrenching, and always thought-provoking revelation of one woman’s experience growing up in Toronto during the sixties and seventies. Having experienced and witnessed abuse as a child, she had to grow up quickly and learn to take care of herself. She took advantage of the free-love era, drug use, and alcohol. But as the years passed from the seventies into the eighties, she somehow felt that life had more to offer, and she struggled to make her life better and to have meaning. This honest, plain-spoken account reveals how a self-indulgent, pleasure-seeking, unsettled, and unsatisfied young woman can, at the same time, be a caring and compassionate person with hopes and dreams like everyone else. This is the real story of a woman’s journey from childhood to womanhood during a time that has been like no other.

Jennifer Stone has been all work and no play for as long as she can remember. But as much as she loves her job, the years of endless sacrifice and unrelenting hard work have finally caught up with her, leaving her burned-out. After making a poor judgment call, Jen’s boss demands she take some time off work, so she heads off to a family-owned cottage on the beach in northern Maine. Jen sees it as the perfect chance to get away and recharge. But what she doesn’t expect is a passing encounter with the guy who has just moved in to the old abandoned cottage next door. Liam is tall, muscular and sexier than hell…but he also is hiding dark secret. Why on earth would a man looking like that live in a tiny two-bedroom cottage, on the beach, all alone? And why does she find his dusky and melodic singing voice so familiar even though she’s never met him before… or has she?
