The Beauty Issue
“Beautiful Words, Inspired Writers,” by Barbara Bellesi
A beautiful work of art doesn’t always belong on a wall: sometimes, it belongs on a bookshelf. Whether it’s a novel or a work of non-fiction, a good book is an object of beauty for many readers. The words on the page can be as striking as a masterpiece, but unlike a painting by one of the greats, a book is actually something you can touch! Here, we have selected three top titles that are available or forthcoming this season that will make excellent additions to your to-be-read pile. Cooking with the Muse, by Myra Kornfeld and Stephen Massimilla (Tupelo Press) shows that inspiration can strike anywhere; and when it happens in the kitchen, our taste buds reap all of the benefits. This beautiful cookbook features more than 150 delicious recipes from all over the globe, which are served up with sumptuous sides of essays, poems, notes, and gorgeous photos. This book is truly a feast for all the senses and will inspire you, just as the muses do, to cook up palate-pleasing creations. Bon appetit!
