Local booksellers’

Top picks ❉

E S TAT

ith the holiday season upon us, we asked local booksellers Kepler’s and Books Inc. to recommend their staffs’ top five picks for 2011. Here are some of their favorites, which range from biographies to historical fiction. “Steve Jobs,” Walter Isaacson, Simon & Schuster: Although written with Jobs’ cooperation, this biography offers a candid and often painfully truthful look at his life and career. Isaacson interviewed a variety of people associated with Jobs, both personally and professionally, many of whom openly painted both the good and the bad aspects of the late Apple leader. Aside from the book’s in-depth look at Jobs the man, it is also a history of the most exciting time in the age of computers, as well as a textbook study of the rise and fall and rise of Apple and the brutal conflicts that ruined friendships and careers. And it is a gadget lover’s dream, with fabulous, inside accounts of how the Macintosh, iPod, iPhone and iPad came into being. Having spent most of my life as a Silicon Valley-ite, I was fascinated by the insights into this brilliant, charming, loathsome, maddening, obsessive, complicated, and very private man. (Pam Grange, Kepler’s) “Boomerang,” Michael Lewis, W.W. Norton & Company Inc.: With his trademark readability, Lewis makes this book about the European debt crisis easy to enjoy. He takes us through the history of the crisis, but adds to this some interesting and thought-provoking ideas about how the national traits of each troubled country may have played into the ensuing mess. You may find yourself repeating parts of this incredible story to anyone who will listen, or urging them to read it themselves. I can’t remember when I found a book about finance to be so engaging, and though ignorance maybe bliss, I think this time around it pays to be more informed. This book will help get you there, painlessly. (Linda Reid, Books Inc.)

for 2011

“The Cat’s Table,” Michael Ondaatje, Alfred A. Knopf, a division of Random House, Inc.: Three young boys set off on a three-week voyage bound for England. They pursue their own interests and intrigues with only slight supervision from a distant aunt and a glamorous cousin. Their home base is established at the first ship’s dinner — they sit at the “cat’s table” set for single passengers, far from the captain’s glittery table. They take to the journey with the thrill of a chase, often underfoot and always observant. I savored the boys’ roaming and chaotic behavior, picturing their wildness and unmasked joy of youth. Ondaatje’s beautiful and elegant storytelling skills weave magic and discovery into the book’s stories; back and forth through time, from incidents during the trip to their adult reminiscences of it, and its life-altering impact. (Marilyn Smith, Kepler’s) “11/23/63: A Novel,” Stephen King, Scribner, a division of Simon & Schuster, Inc.: The master-storyteller has done it again. And this time it’s something completely different: a time-travel tale of the highest caliber. A portal to 1958 is discovered in the pantry of a diner in a small town in Maine, and schoolteacher Jake Epping is given the task (by the dying owner of the diner), to go back to 1958, live through the next few years, and kill Lee Harvey Oswald before Oswald shoots JFK. What Jake discovers, though, is that the past is obdurate and does not want to change. Many obstacles (and a tall, beautiful librarian) are thrown in Jake’s path as he attempts his task. Along the way we learn many details of Oswald’s life (surprisingly interesting) and are exposed to rich details of life in mid-20th-century America. The surprise ending is the finishing masterful touch to this gem of a novel. (Lori Haggbloom, Books, Inc.) “We the Animals,” Justin Torres, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing

Staff members from Books Inc., Kepler’s list this year’s favorites

Company: “We the Animals” is my favorite book of 2011. This short autobiographical novel about three young brothers, their Puerto Rican father and white mother, is a roller-coaster ride of powerful images, flashing before our eyes: the boys’ childhood in upstate New York, their abusive father, drinking, sex, poverty, violence, brotherhood and ultimately love. This book is made of moments of light and darkness, with a rhythm of a song, written in a language so precise, and so raw, you’ll want to read it aloud to experience the sound of its wild joy, with your “heart ticking like a bomb.” (Aggie Zivaljevic, Kepler’s) “The Outlaw Album,” Daniel Woodrell, Little Brown and Company, Hachette Book Group: Daniel Woodrell has aptly called his writing “country noir,” and his newest book, “The Outlaw Album,” does not disappoint. It’s a collection of stories that I found incredibly engaging. Woodrell writes with candor and authenticity. His descriptions are lush. The dialogue is mesmerizing. The tension is metered so well, the first page is just as exciting as the last. His characters are always unique, yet somehow seem familiar, and they tend to have a great amount of depth. I have been a fan of Woodrell ever since I read “Tomato Red.” Before that, I had never really considered myself a fan of noir. However, his brilliant writing opened my eyes to the possibilities of the genre. “The Outlaw Album” is a perfect read for winter, when the weather is cold and the mind tends to wander. Curl up under your favorite blanket with this one. It’s sure to give you chills. (Anthony Ramirez, Books Inc.) “In the Garden of Beasts: Love, Terror and an American Family in Hitler’s Berlin,” Erik Larson, Crown Publishing

Group, a division of Random House, Inc.: In 1933 Hitler is only the newly appointed Chancellor of Germany. There are no SS, no Gestapo and no concentration camps. The horror of the Third Reich is barely apparent, a few seemingly random, if brutal, attacks on Jews and foreigners. The SA (the first Nazi paramilitary army) is filled with handsome young men and patriotic

pride. The Nazis are the first party in 10 years to care about the needs of ordinary Germans in the midst of an economic disaster. President Roosevelt must appoint a new ambassador to Germany and chooses a college professor, William E. Dodd. Neither Dodd nor the world has any idea what is about to be unleashed. Erik Larson takes us through the daily lives of the Dodd family as they are entertained by Goebbels and Himmler; as the ambassador meets the strange little Chancellor before he names himself F¸hrer; and as he desperately tries to convince a hostile State Department of the horror that’s about to befall Europe. (Antonia Squire, Kepler’s) “The Dovekeepers,” Alice Hoffman, Scribner, a division of Simon & Schuster, Inc.: This is a spellbinding tale of the fall of the Second Temple of Jerusalem in 70 CE, and of the subsequent takeover of Herod’s fortress at Masada by the Jewish rebels. It is a tale told through the eyes of four women, each of whom has many secrets, and who are bound together in mysterious and complex ways. We follow the lives of these women from their childhoods, through their various travels and travails, to their ultimate meeting in the dovecote of Masada, and through to the bittersweet end. Told in Hoffman’s astonishingly lyrical and lush prose, this book has the feel of an ancient epic, and yet is very readable. Prepare to spend a few evenings reading late into the night, as it is (as they say) unputdownable. (Lori Haggbloom, Books Inc.) “The Tiger’s Wife,” Tea Obrecht, Random House: From the very first pages, I felt as if I had just entered a temple and all of my prayers were answered, at once. This is not an ordinary book; it’s one of those sacred books that bring miracles into people’s lives, with page after page bringing me to tears. Obrecht’s writing is so evocative that every character, every place that she describes, becomes, or already is, part of my life. Natalia, a young docSee BOOKS, next page

Kirkham, Laurence King Publishing: You may not know the name, but you’ve definitely seen Saul Bass’ work, especially if you’re a film buff or a fan of graphic or industrial design. This gorgeous volume combines a nice overview of the designer’s life with an extensive sampling of his unique artistry, from pantyhose packaging and Kleenex boxes, to Case Study Houses, book jacket art, and opening sequences for television (Playhouse 90, Walt Disney Presents, The Frank Sinatra Show) and film (Anatomy of a Murder, Bunny Lake Is Missing, Vertigo, and Psycho — Bass storyboarded the famous shower scene sequence for that film). Bass worked and designed for more than 50 years. His work remains as fresh and vital today as when it was first created. This book would be a fine addition to any design-lover’s library. (S.G.

Stories take the imagination from inside a bread box to around the world

as rewards, among other things. “Stars” will inspire little ones to look for stars in the natural and celestial world. Parents will find it a perfect bedtime read-aloud.

by Debbie Duncan

“Eleven Experiments that Failed,” Jenny Offill, illustrat-

N

ew books for kids encourage experimentation, exploration, invention and wonder. Wow! Remember, there is no better gift for a child than a book. “Stars,” Mary Lyn Ray, illustrated by Marla Frazee; $17; Beach Lane/ Si mon & Schuster; ages 2-6: Stars take many forms in this gentle, glorious picture book. They’re “how you know it’s almost night,” or they’re drawn on shiny paper and put in your pocket. They’re found in gardens and snowflakes, and given

ed by Nancy Carpenter; $17; Schwartz & Wade/Random House; ages 4-8: An enterprising young scientist tests her hypotheses with 11 off-the-wall experiments. Children will probably figure out that a kid can’t “make it through the winter eating only snow and k e t c hu p” or that yodeling loudly will speed up a boring car ride, but that’s the fun of this inventive book with terrific appeal for local families. Isn’t failure a prerequisite to success in Silicon Valley? “ Wonderst ruck,” Brian Selznick; $30; Scholastic; ages 9 and up: Here is a modern masterpiece that intertwines words and pictures to tell the story of two deaf children separated by 50 years who find each other thanks to a shared love of collecting, museums and a longing for family. “Wonderstruck” is the best book about kids running away to a New York City museum since E.L. Konigsburg’s “From the MixedUp Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler” and is destined to be equally revered as a timeless classic. “Around the World,” Matt Phelan; $25; Candlewick; ages 9-12: How appropriate to use the graphic novel format to map the journeys and explain the motivation of three intrepid travelers near the end of the 19th century who were inspired by Jules Verne’s “Around the World in Eighty Days” to circumnavigate the globe.

Reporter Nelly Bly staged a race against time. She also sounded like Steve Jobs when a dressmaker told her he couldn’t have a dress “that will stand constant wear for three months” made for her that day. Nelly told him: “Nonsense. If you want to do it you can do it.” He did. And she did too, completing her journey in 72 days. By riding a high-wheeled bicycle 13,500 miles over nearly three years, former Colorado miner Thomas Stevens promoted bicycling and person-toperson diplomacy like no one before him. Joshua Slocum took more than three years to sail solo around the Earth — a trip filled with rough seas, pirates and the ghosts of his deceased wife and children. Perfect, in other words, for young readers.

But where is ever y t hing coming from? Is magic making things better, or perhaps worse? And what good is magic when it can’t give Rebecca what she really wants, for her parents to get back together so she can

return home to Baltimore? Readers will gladly become caught in the magical trap Rebecca weaves for herself and root for her no matter how many mistakes she makes in the believable unbelievable world that is “Bigger than a Bread Box.” “Trapped: How the World Rescued 33 Miners from 2,000 Feet Below the Chilean Desert,”

Marc Aronson; $17; Atheneum/ Simon & Schuster; ages 9 and up: Aronson’s survival story of last year’s Chilean mining disaster and rescue chronicles events both below ground and

above for the 69 days that 33 miners were trapped deep in the earth. M a j o r characters include geologists and other scientists and mathematicians the world over, NASA isolation specialists, Chilean elected officials and citizens, and of course the miners themselves and their families. Aronson uses geology, history, psychology, mythology and first-person

interviews to make young readers feel as if they’re right there in the Chilean desert, either helping rescuers devise a successful method to bring the miners to the surface, or in the “underground burrow” with the trapped men. ■ Stanford resident Debbie Duncan is the author of a new eBook, “Caller Number Nine.” She has reviewed children’s books for the Weekly since 1997.

“Bigger than a Bread Box,”

Laurel Snyder; $17; Random House; ages 9-12: Without warning and in the middle of the school year, 12-year-old Rebecca’s mother whisks Rebecca and her baby brother away from their father and their Baltimore home to Gran’s house in Atlanta. Rebecca is lost, lonely and mad as all get-out at her mom. And then she finds a magic bread box that gives her whatever she wants as long as the wished-for

hen it comes to supporting charities, many people think strictly of donating money. But this holiday season, a handful of retailers in the Almanac area hope people consider another option. The stores — from a high-end women’s boutique to a shop that offers local artisans’ works — donate their profits to charity, allowing customers to buy items while also helping those less fortunate. Barbara Bartlett of Woodside recently stopped by the United Nations Association Gift Shop in downtown Palo Alto, as she does every holiday season. There, she browsed for gifts among the items largely made by Third World craftspeople as well as boxes of UNICEF holiday cards. “It’s a wonderful organization — saving the children,� Bartlett said as she checked out. At the Emerson Street store, a display of sturdy hand-woven baskets by Namibian women greets customers on one shelf, while brightly colored animals, carved and painted by Zapotec Indians of Oaxaca, Mexico, fairly leap off another. Each product seems to have a story. Aprons and perfume sachets were sewn and embroidered by mothers of disabled children in Zimbabwe, whose communities have shunned them. Villagers living near the Tian Shan mountain range in Kyrgyzstan turned to making felted ornaments when local factories shut down. Felt-making is considered an ancient art in Central Asia, and the craftspeople have long used wool as part of building their yurts, said Shelly Koska, a volunteer buyer and manager for the gift shop. The store purchases the ornaments from a nonprofit that helps distribute the villagers’ products around the world. In addition to supporting craftspeople by carrying their work, the gift shop donates part of its proceeds to UNICEF and part to the local United Nations Association chapter, which hosts educational events, such as the annual United Nations Association Film Festival. The store is managed by volunteers.

guild, a mother, and the work has since expanded to her daughter and friends. Goodkind recently picked up a $60 green, red and white stocking adorned with a fuzzy-bearded Santa. “You can’t find this anywhere,� Goodkind said, cradling it in her hands. “It’s a labor of love.� Ceramic artist Lee Middleman of Portola Valley stopped by to drop off some of his vases. “It’s a real nice feeling,� he said of the fact that store profits are donated to the children’s hospital. “It’s a good, synergistic thing. I make lower-priced work (for the shop), priced so it will sell.� Middleman’s recent works — elegantly rounded vases that had been precisely glazed — were priced in the $70 and $110 range. “The benefit to me is in the exposure,� he said, adding that people have told him they first saw his work at Allied Arts. Running a store that benefits a nonprofit — and staffed by volunteers — can be challenging, said Tita Kolozsi, a volunteer and a ceramic artist whose works are displayed at the shop. “It’s not easy for any kind of artisan shop nowadays to stay in business,� Koloszi said. Shop director Elaine Scotten relies on four volunteers who work full-time and 18 volunteers who take shifts at the store each week. The shop donated about $30,000 to the children’s hospital this past year, she said. At Town & Country Village shopping center in Palo Alto, the boutique In Her Shoes looks like any other shop for the well-heeled, with highend merchandise and spacious, well-lit displays. And it is, except that its profits go to the Global Fund for Women, a grant-making foundation that invests in women-led organizations worldwide. Most customers don’t even realize the store is a nonprofit, one salesclerk said. Its mission is not announced to shoppers, save for a display about the Global Fund along one wall.

Closer to home, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital benefits from sales at the Artisan Shop in Menlo Park’s Allied Arts Guild. Housed in a historic Spanish Colonial complex on Arbor Road, where photographer Ansel Adams once had a studio, the Artisan Shop sells a variety of items. They include handmade pieces by a few dozen professional artisans and guild members; retail items ordered by the store’s buyers; and donated vintage, collectible, and crystal goods, of which 100 percent of sales revenue go to the hospital, according to store volunteers. This month, along with scarves, baby clothes, jewelry, dinnerware, art and more that the shop normally stocks, Christmas merchandise fills the shelves. One “signature� item, carried every year, is a hand-knit Christmas stocking, said shop volunteer Marion Goodkind. The wool stockings were first made about 15 years ago by a member of the

H A P P Y H O L I D AY S are Anyi Lu pumps, handmade in Italy. The shoes — in chocolate, taupe, gold and leopard print — cost about the same as at other retailers, up to $425. There are also Frye leather boots, priced in the $300-$500 range, Skechers flats, and rhinestone-encrusted silver sandals by Vera Wang Lavender. A black cashmere hoodie with grey knit lining by OATS retails for $150. Some brands, including Frye boots, discount the price of their merchandise to In Her Shoes, in order to boost the amount that is donated to the Global Fund, according to the fund’s website. Pamela Rosekrans originally launched the venture in downtown Palo Alto in 2006. She takes no salary herself, the website stated. Other retail avenues for benefiting charity this holiday season include numerous second-hand shops that support local nonprofits. For-profit stores also are hosting one-time events, such as a Dec. 3 art show and sale at Gitane in Town & Country Village, which will benefit the Global Fund for Women. ■ Palo Alto Weekly Editor Jocelyn Dong can be emailed at jdong@paweekly.com.

I am inspired and honored to be a part of BGCP.� Each finalist spoke about his “be word� (his version of what it means to exemplify the Boys & Girls Club motto, Be Great).

He strives to be a good representative of his family, friends, and the Boys &Girls Club, of which he’s been a member since age 6. He hopes to attend Woodside Priory and become a lawyer. Thirteen-year-old Melvin Santos believes “perseverance is the road to victory.� He came to the U.S. from El Salvador at age 3. He aspires to be a choreographer, and promises to strengthen his community. He exemplified his “be words� — “be proud.� At the end of the night, the judges commented on the three finalists’ confidence. Mr. Friel said: “I spent 30 years judging talent.
