A “bold, luscious” memoir, “indispensable to anyone trying to forge their own truer path” (Ruth Reichl). On one side, there is Grace: prize-winning author Diana Abu-Jaber’s tough, independent sugar-fiend of a German grandmother, wielding a suitcase full of holiday cookies. On the other, Bud: a flamboyant, spice-obsessed Arab father, full of passionate argument. The two could not agree on anything: not about food, work, or especially about what Diana should do with her life. Grace warned her away from children. Bud wanted her married above all—even if he had to provide the ring. Caught between cultures and lavished with contradictory “advice” from both sides of her family, Diana spent years learning how to ignore others’ well-intentioned prescriptions. Hilarious, gorgeously written, poignant, and wise, Life Without a Recipe is Diana’s celebration of journeying without a map, of learning to ignore the script and improvise, of escaping family and making family on one’s own terms. As Diana discovers, however, building confidence in one’s own path sometimes takes a mistaken marriage or two—or in her case, three: to a longhaired boy-poet, to a dashing deconstructionist literary scholar, and finally to her steadfast, outdoors-loving Scott. It also takes a good deal of angst (was it possible to have a serious writing career and be a mother?) and, even when she knew what she wanted (the craziest thing, in one’s late forties: a baby!), the nerve to pursue it. Finally, fearlessly independent like the Grace she’s named after, Diana and Scott’s daughter Gracie will heal all the old battles with Bud and, like her writer-mom, learn to cook up a life without a recipe.

A prisoner escapes from a jail in northern Ontario, precipitating a massive, month-long manhunt, interrupting the lives of local residents through the invasion of roadblocks, aerial surveillance, Tactics and Rescue Unit maneuvers and unrelenting media coverage. While at large, the fugitive collects almost two-dozen captives, whose description of him defies the stereotypic image of wanton criminal portrayed by the media. Instead, they report a peculiarly erudite and sympathetic man who at times seemed chagrined and even remorseful at having been forced to ensnare them in his personal drama. Bette Logan, a North Bay woman dissatisfied with the constraints of the mores imposed on women of the times, and longing to stretch herself beyond the prescribed boundaries, finds the escapee's story intriguing and decides to propose to him, after his re-incarceration, the idea of writing a book. What she discovers of herself through the gradual development of the relationship will shape her as a human being and serve to propel her beyond the relationship and on to a life lived on her own terms.

As son-in-law and literary executor to Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832), John Gibson Lockhart (1794-1854) was uniquely placed to produce a definitive biography of the great poet and novelist. First published in 1837-8, shortly after Scott's death, this celebrated seven-volume work is based on personal memories, correspondence, and Scott's own autobiographical sketches. Wide-ranging in his purview, Lockhart is also detailed in his descriptions: the Aberdeen Journal of the day observed that the volumes trace Scott's life and literary efforts with 'the most minute distinctness'. Volume 6 covers the years 1825-6, during which Scott experienced literary triumph with the publication of Tales of the Crusaders (1825), continued to work on Woodstock (1826), and took an excursion to Ireland. The closing chapters cover the banking crises of 1825 and hint at the financial catastrophes that were to plague the author until his death seven years later.
