A couple of new ones to add to the shelf this week.
The first here is Thug Kitchen’s new cookbook. I’ve actually been waiting for this one for a while. Don’t be fooled by the humorous, foul-mouthed recipes in this gem of a collection; all of them are based on a really healthy diet and there’s some incredible-looking stuff in here that I’m pretty excited to try out. If you want a good idea of the sense of humor that’s woven into this book, check out the commercial.
Next up is one I found unexpectedly while picking up the cookbook: The Haunted Life And Other Writings by Jack Kerouac. This is a new archival collection of what is considered to be a long-lost manuscript Kerouac had written in 1944. I’m personally excited about this for two reasons. First, I’m excited anytime a new collection of Kerouac’s work comes out, and second, this looks to be a really good look at what he was working on prior to the writing and publication of The Town and the City, which, if you haven’t read, I highly recommend it, even if you’re not much of a Kerouac fan.
