"From a global cast of winemakers come intimate, revealing comments about their art, which swing between invigorating to mellow … Mullen returns with these insights into why folks involved with the wine trade are in love with their work. The reasons are legion but all of a part: being outdoors and in tune with the seasons, entering into a partnership with the grapes, pride in the art of creation and an independence of spirit…Included are photographs heavily saturated with atmosphere, the kind you can almost smell before you see them ... A fine, maverick company of winemakers hold court about the thing they love best: communing with the world of the grape."

"Knezevic's characters are full of life, and the pages of her novel brim with crisp dialogue that conveys the deep emotional burdens of a family struggling to survive. Details such as fashion and food bring the past to life, and Knezevic spends time describing both the beauty and destruction of Desa's surroundings. Her descriptions of cafe lattes and flaky croissants might leave readers hungering for a trip to Paris, while the chaos that springs from the bombings of Belgrade paint an honest portrait of the horrors of war."

"THE RULES OF DREAMING: A mind-bending marriage of ambitious literary theory and classic murder mystery.... In this intricately plotted novel, Hartman... spins the familiar trappings of gothic mystery together with a fresh postmodern sensibility, producing a story that's as rich and satisfying as it is difficult to categorize.... As Hartman skillfully blurs the lines between fiction and reality, the book becomes a profound meditation on art, identity and their messy spheres of influence. An exciting, original take on the literary mystery genre."
