By Judith Flanders. 2017
Nearly everything you know about Christmas is wrong. Do you think the proclaimed war on Christmas is a recent occurrence?… Do you think Santa is Dutch, or that his red suit was brought to you courtesy of Coca-Cola? Or are you merely dreaming of a Christmas like the one you used to know? You aren't alone: thirty years after the first recorded Christmas, a fourth-century archbishop was already complaining that his flock was spending the day dancing and feasting, not in religious observance. By 1616, the playwright Ben Jonson was nostalgically reminiscing about the vastly better Christmases in the old days. Some traditions of Christmas are relatively new--who would have thought gift-wrap was a novelty of the twentieth century? That the first holiday parade was neither at Macy's, nor even in the United States? Other elements, however, have been around for a surprisingly long time. The first known gag holiday giftbook, The Boghouse Miscellany, was advertised in the 1760s, while in 1805, the leaders of the Lewis and Clark expedition exchanged--what else?--presents of underwear and socks. Christmas is different things to different people: a religious festival for some, a family celebration for others, or perhaps simply a time of seasonal eating and drinking. In Christmas: A Biography, historian Judith Flanders casts a sharp eye over the myths, legends, and history that make up the holiday to show us the season as it really is, but rarely how it is understood. 2017.

By Jan Wong. 2017
Jan Wong knows food is better when shared, so when she set out to write a book about home cooking… in France, Italy, and China, she asked her 22-year-old son, Sam, to join her. While he wasn't keen on spending excessive time with his mom, he dreamed of becoming a chef. Ultimately, it was an opportunity he couldn't pass up. On their journey, Jan and Sam live and cook with locals, seeing how globalization is changing food, families, and cultures. In southeast France, they move in with a family sheltering undocumented migrants. From Bernadette, the housekeeper, they learn classic French family fare such as blanquette de veau. In a hamlet in the heart of Italy's Slow Food country, the locals teach them how to make authentic spaghetti alle vongole and a proper risotto with leeks. In Shanghai, they cook firecracker chicken and scallion pancakes with the nouveaux riches and their migrant maids, who are part of the biggest demographic shift in world history. Along the way, mother and son explore their sometimes-fraught relationship, uniting--and occasionally clashing--over their mutual love of cooking. 2017.

"La génération Y est issue des années 1980. On dit des jeunes adultes qui la composent qu'ils aiment s'affirmer, se… distinguer et aussi avoir du bon temps. Ils sont parfaitement à l'aise avec les nouveaux médias et les nouvelles technologies, auront probablement voyagé aussi loin que leurs parents avant d'avoir vingt-cinq ans et occuperont vraisemblablement une bonne dizaine d'emplois dans leur vie. Bien souvent, leurs parents (les baby-boomers) ont du mal à les comprendre. L'auteur pose ici un regard comparatif sur cette génération et celles qui l'ont précédée. Il définit les caractéristiques de la génération silencieuse (1900-1945), de celle du baby-boom (1946-1965) et de la génération X (1966-1978), avant de les confronter pour interroger la nature des tensions entre elles et les modes d'accommodement possibles. L'ouvrage met aussi en lumière les jeux de pouvoir, les alliances, les conflits, les glissements de valeurs entre les générations qui forment les strates de notre société, en pleine mutation. Le lecteur est invité à saisir la combinaison unique de curiosité et de diversité, d'originalité et de polyvalence qui caractérise la génération Y. L'auteur, Carol Allain, s'engage à faire surgir de cet ouvrage une réflexion significative qui aidera parents et employeurs à mieux comprendre les Y afin de développer avec eux la meilleure synergie possible." -- 4e de couv.
