One Secret Thing by Sharon Olds
One Secret Thing

Erica Reichert, July 7, 2010

Sharon Olds' collections of poetry are always amazing, technically stellar, emotionally rich, and completely accessible. This collection is not quite as amazing as The Unswept Floor. The war poems are politically needed and right on target but leave something to be desired in execution. However, the poems chronicling the process undergone as she loses her mother are everything I could ever expect of such a masterful and seasoned poet. Truly amazing. All told, I still want to be Sharon Olds when I grow up.

Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town by Nick Reding
Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town

Erica Reichert, July 2, 2010

~Methland: The Death and Life of an American Small Town~ is a very interesting read. I especially appreciated that the author connects the consolidation of union-busting food and agricultural big business and the business lobbying of big pharma with the deterioration of small towns in the U.S. Midwest and the proliferation of meth manufacture and sales. This is a must-read for anyone interested in rural American communities, labor and the economy, drug epidemics, and social policy.

Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home: Fast and Easy Recipes for Any Day by Moosewood Collective
Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home: Fast and Easy Recipes for Any Day

Erica Reichert, April 18, 2009

Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home has been our family's "go-to" cookbook for the past 15 years. The recipes are absolutely delicious, vegetarian/vegan, healthy, and pretty easy if you plan ahead. The soup recipes are worth their weight in gold.

Women's experiences with HIV/AIDS :an international perspective
Women's experiences with HIV/AIDS :an international perspective

Erica Reichert, April 17, 2009

A fantastic overview of women's experiences of the HIV/AIDS epidemic from a more global perspective. Although slightly dated, still well worth reading.

Sexed Work 'Gender, Race and Resistance in a Brooklyn Drug Market' (CSC) (Clarendon Studies in Criminology) by Lisa Maher
Sexed Work 'Gender, Race and Resistance in a Brooklyn Drug Market' (CSC) (Clarendon Studies in Criminology)

Erica Reichert, April 17, 2009

With Sexed Work, Lisa Maher provides a stellar ethnography of female sex workers and drug users in a skid-row Bronx neighborhood. Furthermore, Maher presents an insuperable treatment of her subjects' complicated lives that balances their own agency with the context in which they make decisions. A top-notch work of feminist criminology and ethnography.
