A Letter to the Man Who Shot Me

An inspiring memoir written as a letter to the unknown man who shot the author in the back at age thirteen while he was walking home from a New Years Eve party on Manhattans Lower East Side.

The vibrant red color and distinctive flavor of this recipe come from the achiote recado, a spice paste made with annatto, the seed of a tree native to Central America. Long, slow cooking in banana leaf brings a taste of tropical Mexico to your slow cooker while replicating the traditional pit-cooking method that gives the recipe its name. Keep it simple and authentic by serving it with black beans, corn tortillas, and white rice, as well as fiery Mayan xni pec, a citrusy salsa laced with onion and habanero chiles. Fried plantains are an excellent accompaniment as well. Boneless chicken may be used instead of the pork shoulder.
2 teaspoons whole cumin seeds 3 ounces achiote paste 1/4 cup peeled garlic cloves 2 serrano chiles, stemmed 1/2 cup diced white onion 2 teaspoons kosher salt 2 tablespoons white vinegar 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice 2 1/2 pounds boneless pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes 2 (12-inch) pieces banana or plantain leaf (see note) 1/2 cup water

To serve, sprinkle with a little chopped cilantro and pass the salsa alongside.
Fresh banana and plantain leaves can be found at Latin groceries. they should be washed and dried before use. Frozen banana leaves can usually be found in asian markets.

Xni Pec Salsa

Habanero chiles are extremely picante. Since it takes time for the full impact of the heat to travel through the salsa, its wise to start with a small amount of habanero, then taste the salsa again after several minutes.
1/2 small red onion, diced 1 small roma tomato, diced 1/2 teaspoon seeded and minced habanero chile 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice 1 tablespoon fresh orange juice 1 teaspoon white vinegar 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh cilantro

In a small skillet over medium heat, toast the cumin until fragrant, stirring frequently so it doesnt burn. Let cool completely and grind in a spice grinder. Combine the ground cumin with the achiote paste, garlic, serranos, onion, salt, vinegar, and orange juice in a food processor and process until very smooth. Coat the pork evenly with half the spice mixture. Line the bottom of a slow cooker with one piece of banana leaf. Top with the pork and the remaining spice mixture. Add the water and place the second banana leaf over the pork. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours.

Barbara Slate Edited by Victoria Zackheim


After having been a good girl and following her mothers advice to snag a husband before she became a twenty-something spinster, Barbara Slate realized that her Mr. Right was actually Mr. Wrong and that she was living her life according to everyones rules but her own. After twelve years of an unblissful marriage, she made her escape. Now this accomplished comic artist lets it all out in a savagely funny and emotionally honest fictional narrative. Jo, her stand-in protagonist, is a successful wedding photographer (of all things) who has been dumped by her husband and desperately needs to get on with her life. She follows her friends advice to get laid, see a shrink, go out more, and live a little. Nothing works. Eventually she realizes that she must stop listening to what everybody else tells her and follow her own voice instead. Hudson, NY

Kristen Iversen

Q: Why did you write the book? A: Rocky Flats was the big secret of my childhood. No one knew what they did at the plant; the rumor in the neighborhood was that they made household cleaning products. We knew nothing about radioactive and toxic contamination. My childhood was also shadowed by the secrecy surrounding my fathers alcoholism. My family was very close and loving but also troubled. I wrote the book to learn what really happened at Rocky Flats, to learn everything I could about plutonium pits and nuclear weapons and the crucial role the plant played during and after the Cold War. I also wanted to understand my family and the broader context of what it meant to grow up during the seventies. Secrecy at the level of the community and at the level of family turned out to be a central theme in the book. one of the great ironies of my life is that I spent several years as a travel writer in Europe, looking for good stories to write about, and the biggest story turned out to bequite literallyin my own backyard. My family and our neighbors were Cold War warriors, as the plutonium workers themselves were called, but no one told us.

Excerpt from The Age of Miracles:

We didnt notice right away. We couldnt feel it. We did not sense, at first, the extra time, bulging from the smooth edge of each day like a tumor blooming beneath skin. We were distracted, back then, by weather and war. We had no interest in the turning of the earth. Bombs continued to explode on the streets of distant countries. Hurricanes came and went. Summer ended. A new school year began. The clocks ticked as usual. Seconds beaded into minutes. Minutes grew into hours. And there was nothing to suggest that those hours too werent still pooling into days, each the same, fixed length known to every human being. But there were those who would later claim to have recognized the disaster before the rest of us did. These were the night workers, the graveyard shifters, the stockers of shelves, and the loaders of ships, the drivers of big-rig trucks, or else they were the bearers of different burdens: the sleepless and the troubled and the sick. These people were accustomed to waiting out the night. Through bloodshot eyes, a few did detect a certain persistence of darkness on the mornings leading up to the news, but each mistook it for the private misperception of a lonely, rattled mind. on the sixth of october, the experts went public. This, of course, is the day we all remember. Thered been a change, they said, a slowing, and thats what we called it from then on: the slowing.
