Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first true entry-level bread-baking cookbook, from Josey Baker (that's his real name!), a former science teacher turned San Francisco baking sensation. Josey Baker Bread combines step-by-step lessons with more than 100 photographs, offering easy-to-follow guidance for aspiring bakers. Recipes start with the basic formula for making bread — requiring little more than flour, water, time, and a pan — and build in depth and detail as the user progresses to more complex loaves, including Josey's cult favorite Dark Mountain Rye. With chapters dedicated to pizza, pocketbreads, and treats, Josey's playful, encouraging tone makes for a fun read full of great advice for bakers of all levels.

Recipes include:
Your First Loaf of Bread
Your First Sourdough Loaf
Seed Feast
Dark Mountain Rye
Plus pizzas, pocketbreads, cookies, and more!

Review:

"On weekend mornings, a crowd forms in front of The Mill, a cafe on the up-coming stretch of Divisadero Street in San Francisco. While mentions of the cafe's $4 toast made the rounds on blogs and news sites, stirring up debate about the cost of living in the Bay Area, the line hasn't shortened for the fresh-out-of-the-oven slices. Josey Baker — yes, that's his last name — leads the Mill team in all things bread and shares step-by-step lessons in creating an array of loaves and other baked goods. A playful tone and style (the author begins the book with q&a with himself), and well-shot, full-color recipe photos make this an enjoyable read while educating home bakers on loaves from whole wheat to sourdough to cornbread. Additional recipes such as the B(L)T pocketbread, the Raddest Homemade Pizza the World Has Ever Known, and Seasonal Fruit Crumble make this a book you'll want to pull from the shelf well after your morning toast."

Synopsis:

When The Texas Chain Saw Massacre first hit movie screens in 1974 it was both reviled and championed. To critics, it was either "a degrading, senseless misuse of film and time" or "an intelligent, absorbing and deeply disturbing horror film." However it was an immediate hit with audiences. Banned and celebrated, showcased at the Cannes film festival and included in the New York MoMA's collection, it has now come to be recognized widely as one of the greatest horror movies of all time.

A six-foot-four poet fresh out of grad school with limited acting experience, Gunnar Hansen played the masked, chain-saw-wielding Leatherface. His terrifying portrayal and the inventive work of the cast and crew would give the film the authentic power of nightmare, even while the gritty, grueling, and often dangerous independent production would test everyone involved, and lay the foundations for myths surrounding the film that endure even today.

Critically-acclaimed author Hansen here tells the real story of the making of the film, its release, and reception, offering unknown behind-the-scenes details, a harrowingly entertaining account of the adventures of low-budget filmmaking, illuminating insights on the film's enduring and influential place in the horror genre and our culture, and a thoughtful meditation on why we love to be scared in the first place.
