In the Sierra Madre Mountains of Northern Mexico, isolated from the chaos of the Mexican Revolution, lived a peaceful, indigenous people known as the Tarahumara. There, away from civilization, 16-year-old Suré fell in love with a Jesuit missionary priest, Leandro. Their love convinces him to leave the priesthood and begin a family in the “civilized” world. The aftermath of the Mexican Revolution leads the romantic couple to be victimized by machismo and drunken savagery, forcing Suré into a twenty-year journey to overcome discrimination and violence. Inspired by the 2014 immigration crisis of unaccompanied minors into the U.S., Praying for an Eclipse is a trilogy of historical fiction that follows the family saga of Suré and her descendants over five generations. Book One, Mother Moon, narrates the traumatic rift that separates Suré from her family, creating and emotional and psychological divide that will mark the lives of her descendants in the following books.
“Important, possibly life-altering, reading for every living, breathing human being." -- Boston Globe In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen.
Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. Each section of Cooked tracks Pollan’s effort to master a single classic recipe using one of the four elements.
A North Carolina barbecue pit master tutors him in the primal magic of fire; a Chez Panisse–trained cook schools him in the art of braising; a celebrated baker teaches him how air transforms grain and water into a fragrant loaf of bread; and finally, several mad-genius “fermentos” (a tribe that includes brewers, cheese makers, and all kinds of picklers) reveal how fungi and bacteria can perform the most amazing alchemies of all. The reader learns alongside Pollan, but the ons move beyond the practical to become an investigation of how cooking involves us in a web of social and ecological relationships.
Cooking, above all, connects us. The effects of not cooking are similarly far reaching.
Relying upon corporations to process our food means we consume large quantities of fat, sugar, and salt; disrupt an essential link to the natural world; and weaken our relationships with family and friends. In fact, Cooked argues, taking back control of cooking may be the single most important step anyone can take to help make the American food system healthier and more sustainable. Reclaiming cooking as an act of enjoyment and self-reliance, learning to perform the magic of these everyday transformations, opens the door to a more nourishing life.
