This compilation of heretofore uncollected essays shows noted novelist and cultural critic Francine Prose at her most eloquent, incisive, and provocative.When Francine Prose's article, Scent of a Woman's Ink--which discussed how women writers are consistently underrepresented among the winners of major American literary awards--appeared in Harper's magazine thre e years ago, it touched off a storm of debate and counter-arguments, both in print and on the airwaves. In SCENT OF A WOMAN'S INK: ESSAYS BY FRANCINE PROSE, that article, along with Prose's equally pithy and incisive writings about the art and politics of writing and its at times jarring intersection with the culture it documents, confirms Prose's place as one of the most readable and relevant cultural critics writing today.From Learnining from Chekhov, her elegant and considered essay on the art and craft of writing to A Wasteland of One's Own, her controversial and much-discussed piece about the commercially created and dumbed-down women's culture for The New York Times, Prose's essays are at once instructive and revelatory, and always provocative.

The book that helped make Michael Pollan, the New York Times bestselling author of How to Change Your Mind, Cooked and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, one of the most trusted food experts in America Every schoolchild learns about the mutually beneficial dance of honeybees and flowers: The bee collects nectar and pollen to make honey and, in the process, spreads the flowers’ genes far and wide. In The Botany of Desire, Michael Pollan ingeniously demonstrates how people and domesticated plants have formed a similarly reciprocal relationship. He masterfully links four fundamental human desires—sweetness, beauty, intoxication, and control—with the plants that satisfy them: the apple, the tulip, marijuana, and the potato. In telling the stories of four familiar species, Pollan illustrates how the plants have evolved to satisfy humankind’s most basic yearnings. And just as we’ve benefited from these plants, we have also done well by them. So who is really domesticating whom?
