The Most Important Titles of the Spring 2013 Season. Hand Selected for Librarians.

Jim Crace

HARVEST: A Novel
I was a huge fan of Crace’s The Pesthouse (which was an ALA Notable Book), so I was thrilled to see we had his next book on our spring list. It was the first one I picked up from that season and I’m happy to say that I was not disappointed. Crace weaves a tapestry of bucolic life colliding with economic progress with haunting results. The writing is mind-blowing.

Seeking Salvation in Literature
Q: Why did you write this book? A: I wanted to explore and celebrate how
literature has saved my life. or teach us how to endure it. The books I love aren’t kidding around; they manifestly explore the meaning of existence.

Q: That’s a pretty strong statement.
Has literature really saved your life?

Q: What are some examples? A: In How Literature Saved My Life I
rhapsodize about dozens of such works, but the book that is foremost in my mind right now is Simon Gray’s four-volume Smoking Diaries, which I’m rereading now for the third time in five years. A man, whose friends are dying and who by the final book of the tetralogy is dying himself, stands before us utterly naked and takes account: Rembrandt’s late self-portraits, in prose. Each entry is typically only a few paragraphs, the entries connect in beautifully oblique ways, and every volume is held together by an understated but brilliantly deployed metaphor. An entire life, an entire way of thinking, comes into being. Having read the diaries, I feel less lonely.

A: Yes. At every stage of my life, books, reading,
writing have rescued me.

Q: How so? A: The most obvious example is

HOW LITERATURE SAVED MY LIFE

Steam the cauliflower florets and core over boiling water for about 3 minutes. Taste a piece. It should be on the verge of tenderness and not quite fully cooked. Set it aside. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil for the pasta. Heat the oil in a wide skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and saffron and cook, stirring frequently, until the onion is soft, 6 minutes or so. The steam will activate the saffron so that it stains and flavors the onion. Add the garlic, pepper flakes, and a few pinches of the parsley, give them a stir, and then add the cauliflower. Toss the cauliflower to coat it with the seasonings, add 1Ž2 cup water, and cook over medium heat until the cauliflower is tender,just a few minutes. Season with salt, toss with half of the remaining parsley, and keep warm. While the cauliflower is cooking, cook the pasta in the boiling water until al dente. Drain, transfer

to a warmed bowl, and toss with a few tablespoons of oil and the remaining parsley. Taste for salt, then spoon the cauliflower over the pasta, wiggle some of it into the pasta crevices, add the cheese, andserve. With Shrimp: When wild Gulf shrimp are in season, take advantage of their sweet goodness. Peel 1 pound shrimp, then sauté them over high heat in olive oil until pink and firm, after 5 minutes or so. Toss them with chopped garlic and parsley and divide them among the individual pasta plates or heap them over the top of the communal dish. Omit the cheese.

E 978-1-60774-192
I love this approach to cauliflower. In fact, I’d say it’s my favorite way to cook it. It’s golden, aromatic, and lively in the mouth. It’s good alone and very good spooned over pasta shells, which catch the smaller bits of the vegetable. Even a small cauliflower can be surprisingly dense, weighing a pound and yielding four cups florets.
