With the World Cup competition happening now, it's time to read up on some Cup history. There's a good dash of politics thrown in as well. This is a fascinating collection of short essays that any soccer fan will enjoy.

Cuisines of the Axis of Evil and Other Irritating States: A Dinner Party Approach to International Relations

This is that rare book written with great intelligence but buffered by humor and wit. The recipes are clearly written and offer substitutes for uncommon ingredients.

Brandon has created characters that the reader wants to know more about. It's an entirely believable novel with a great cover.
