This awesome combination of a graphic memoir and a cookbook has super easy to follow and delicious recipes for authentic Korean food. The art throughout makes the recipes completely un-intimidating, and the author's story, shared in short comic vignettes throughout the book, is compelling and moving. This is a great addition to your cookbook shelf! ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

This beautiful, painful novel of immigration is a must-read. One morning, Deming Guo's mother, Polly - an undocumented immigrant, left for her job at a nail salon and never returned. Told in alternating viewpoints, this novel explores both Deming and Polly's lives both before and after her disappearance. Deeply moving and beautifully written, this exploration of the space one woman leaves behind is essential reading. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person

A downtrodden adjunct linguist leaves Harvard for a shadowy government agency looking to bring magic back into the world - and then weaponize it. Of course, everything goes hilariously and horrifically wrong. If cranky witches, naked time travel, and comically blundering bureaucracy are your thing, this is the book for you. It may look long, but it's a fast, funny read that left me smiling. ~ Reviewed by Rachel Person
