California Dish: What I Saw (and Cooked) at the American Culinary Revolution

by Jeremiah Tower

Widely recognized as the godfather of modern American cooking and a mentor to such rising celebrity chefs as Mario Batali, Jeremiah Tower is one of the most influential cooks of the last thirty years. Now, the former chef and partner at Chez Panisse and the genius behind Stars San Francisco tells the story of his lifelong love affair with food -- an affair that helped to spark an international culinary revolution. Tower shares with wit and honesty the real dish on cooking, chefs, celebrities, and what really goes on in the kitchen. Above all, Tower rhapsodizes about food -- the meals choreographed like great ballets, the menus scored like concertos. No other book reveals more about the seeds sown in the seventies, the excesses of the eighties, and the self-congratulations of the nineties. No other chef/restaurateur who was there at the very beginning is better positioned than Jeremiah Tower to tell the story of the American culinary revolution.

California Dreaming

by Lawrence Donegan

Lured by a six-figure salary in Silicon Valley and fond memories of his low-rent North American rock 'n' roll tour, U.K. journalist, bass player, and adventure seeker Lawrence Donegan lands in California to pursue the American dream. Somewhere along the way he takes a wrong turn and ends up working on Orchard Boulevard, home of the world's biggest car lot. Donegan quickly picks up a reputation as the worst salesman anyone has seen in twenty years, but with mentors like Mickey "The Legend" McDonald, Tony "The Tank" Tognazzini, and Frankie "The Rock" Reames, it isn't long before he acquires the brass balls and lowdown cunning he needs to sell his first car. California Dreaming is part personal journey, part classic American adventure. It charts Donegan's career as an "asphalt warrior," from multiple rejections ("Get away from me, sleazeball!") to his pursuit of the Oscar of the used-car business: the Salesman of the Month Award. You'll find yourself rooting for him every step of the way.

California Dreams

by Stanley Mouse Miller

The story of Stanley "Mouse" Miller is a story of the cultural and artistic renaissance of the 1960s. It is difficult to separate the narrative of his journey through the music world from the artwork he created. Mouse was indeed an institution of the period- living with the Grateful Dead in their Haight Ashbury Victorian, hosting Janis Joplin for a Big Brother audition at his studio, and calling Eric Clapton a favorite friend. Mouse's work weaves from pop art to rock art to fine art forms, underscoring the longevity and versatility of his mature ouevre. Mouse's tales are as whimsical as they are serendipitous, perfectly depicting San Francisco during the summer of love. Together, Mouse and Kelley became masterminds behind a new media-that of the psychedelic poster-which came to exemplify the Haight-Asbury of the late 1960s. The book will feature over 200 color images.

California Fire and Life

by Don Winslow

Jack Wade, a claims adjuster for California Fire and Life Mutual Insurance Company, is one of the best arson investigators around. He's a man who knows fire, who can read the traces it leaves behind like a roadmap. When he's called in to examine an unusual claim, the tracks of the fire tell him that something's wrong. So wrong that he violates his own cardinal rule--"You don't get personal, you don't get emotional. Whatever you do, you don't get involved"--and plunges into the case.Real estate mogul Nicky Vale's house is one of the most valuable properties on this stretch of the Southern California gold coast--large, luxurious, crammed with antiques, set on a nice piece of land with a perfect ocean view. After a disastrous blaze tears through a wing of the house, it's only normal that Vale would file an insurance claim. But a $3 million claim is rarely normal, especially not when it's filed within hours of the horrific death of the owner's young and beautiful wife. The County Sheriff's Department investigator, Brian "Accidentally" Bentley, has declared the fire, well, accidental--caused by Mrs. Vale's passing out in bed with a bottle of vodka and a lit cigarette--although a careful look at the evidence points to something more sinister. When Jack begins his investigation, he draws on his skill, experience and sheer stubbornness to uncover the truth of what's going on, but each step leads him further into a situation that's becoming increasingly dangerous. Soon arson is the least of Jack's worries, as the case grows to involve the Russian mob, Vietnamese gangs, real estate scams, counterfeiting and corporate corruption. In addition, Jack's forced to confront his own ghosts, including a fatal professional error, and to cope with the sudden reentry into his life of the best thing that ever happened to him: Letitia del Rio, a Sheriff's deputy whose bombshell looks are exceeded only by her smarts and guts. As the investigation spins out of control, Jack finds himself pulled so far in that he might not make it out. His outrageous behavior and defiant integrity, usually about as helpful to him as third-degree burns, may now be the only things that will keep the investigation--and Jack himself--from being snuffed out.
