See, Hear, Read: Safety Not Guaranteed, directed by Colin Trevorrow (Oct. 30)

“I’m a big fan of science fiction films with decent storylines and character development. An overload of special effects makes me fall asleep. Safety Not Guaranteed, about a small-town eccentric who claims to have built a time machine, is sci-fi, but it also works as a quirky romantic comedy. It’s the ultimate underdog movie, and deeper than the average Hollywood flick.”

See, Hear, Read: Come Home to Mama, by Martha Wainwright (Oct. 16)

Come Home to Mama arrives almost three years after Martha Wainwright lost her mother, the great Kate McGarrigle, to cancer, and became a mother herself. The album’s title comes from the heartrending ‘Proserpina,’ the last song McGarrigle ever wrote. In it, the goddess Hera cries out to her missing daughter, who has been taken by Pluto to the underworld. It’s hard not to be moved by the real-life grief Martha must have felt as she sang it.”

Bouchon Bakery, by Thomas Keller (Oct. 23)

“This is a great book for anyone who wants to get inside a celebrated chef’s mind and find out how he develops recipes. Thomas Keller’s creations have become more accessible over the years (I’ve eaten at Bouchon Bakery, and it was definitely the most casual of all his places). In this collection, Keller hands the reins to his pastry chef, who offers recipes for baked goods both savoury and sweet. The photography is so fabulous it could double as a coffee table book.”
