Published: Scribner - December 9th, 2014

This is my favorite contemporary spy novel, in great part due to the author’s 33 years of CIA experience running agents in denied area operations around the world. Jason Matthews incorporates so much of his tradecraft into these books that the CIA was surprised how little was censored.

ISBN: 9781101911327

Published: Anchor - September 5th, 2017

Despite the title, this book by the TV critic of FRESH AIR is not a study of a particular era. It's a history of television wisely offered in a series of short essays on shows that are excellent, influential, or both, and it even includes interviews with some of the key people. The way it's organized is great for browsing, but don't be surprised at the impulse to barrel through the whole book.

In WORDS UNDER THE WORDS, the poet Naomi Shihab Nye blends images from her experiences living and traveling in the Middle East, Mexico, South America, and Texas. It's a collection of some of her finest poems which explore familial relationships, childhood memories, and home. My favorite is her poem Kindness, which is one of the truest depictions of the word I have ever heard. From the opening: "Before you know what kindness really is / you must lose things, / feel the future dissolve in a moment / like salt in a weakened broth."
