Closer to Home: The Author and the Author Portrait fixes its searching and intimate gaze on writers as they have seldom been seen before. These striking images were captured at a location where the writer lives, works or plays. Each is accompanied by a crisp and insightful vignette about the experience of photographing the writer, thoughts about the uses of artists’ portraits, and, often, a touch of refined literary gossip. Terence Byrnes, whose own collection of short stories, Wintering Over, garnered critical praise, removed himself from the limelight tobehind the camera to photograph other writers. For a period of ten years, he visited writers in their homes and, while discussing the writing life with them, photographed them at their ease. “The literary portrait,” Byrnes says, “had become moribund, showing writers as stalwart or fetching in various degrees, and barricaded by books like a university don from a British novel of manners. These portraits show the photographer as an interloper to whom the writer must react as an individual, not as a role.” The history of the literary portrait and its place in the creation of commercial success and literary canons will be examined in an introductory critical essay, “The Seductive Frontispiece.”

Many edible plants considered exotic in the Western world are actually quite mainstream in other cultures. While some of these plants are only encountered in ethnic food markets or during travels to foreign lands, many are now finding their way onto supermarket shelves. Top 100 Exotic Food Plants provides comprehensive coverage of tropical and semitropical food plants, reviewing scientific and technological information as well as their culinary uses. Wide-ranging in scope, this volume’s coverage includes plants that produce fruits, vegetables, spices, culinary herbs, nuts, and extracts. A user-friendly format enables readers to easily locate information on botanical and agricultural aspects, economic and social importance, food uses, storage, preparation, and potential toxicity. The book also contains an introductory chapter that reviews important historical, economic, geopolitical, health, environmental, and ethical considerations associated with exotic food plants. Thoroughly referenced with more than 2000 literature citations, this book is enhanced by more than 200 drawings, many chosen from historical art of extraordinary quality. This timely volume also highlights previously obscure edible plants that have recently become prominent as a result of sensationalistic media reports stemming from their inherently entertaining or socially controversial natures. Some of these plants include the acai berry, kava, hemp, and opium poppy. A scholarly yet accessible presentation, the book is filled with numerous memorable, fascinating, and humorous facts, making it an entertaining and stimulating read that will appeal to a broad audience.
