TEQUILA COCKTAILS Tequila Cocktails is the fourth in Brian Van Flandern’s series of award-winning books, centering on Casamigos Tequila by George Clooney, Rande Gerber, and Mike Meldman. This volume shines a spotlight on the title beverage: the smoothest, best-tasting tequila from their master distiller in Jalisco, Mexico, with a taste so good that adding salt or lime would be gilding the lily. The Blanco, Reposado, and Añejo varieties are truly the quintessence of Mexico’s favorite beverage. This volume includes sixty delectable recipes.

ILLUSTRATED NOVEL

A riveting blend of memoir, biography, literary criticism, and fiction, Manhattan’s Babe is smart and erudite; rueful and funny. Beigbeder is one of France’s most celebrated and controversial writers and we’re lucky to have another of his books in English. JAY M c IN E RN EY, BRIGH T, P REC I OUS DAYS

AVAILABLE NOW

MANHATTAN’S BABE AN ILLUSTRATED NOVEL A nostalgic and bittersweet love story, Manhattan’s Babe is the illustrated English-language edition of French writerfilmmaker Frédéric Beigbeder’s 2014 novel, Oona & Salinger, a fictionalized account of the true-life love story of up-andcoming writer J.D. Salinger, 22, and Oona O’Neill, 16, the beautiful socialite daughter of the great American playwright. Their all-too-short romance blossomed during the summer of 1941, before the U.S. joined World War II. Then Salinger was drafted into the Army, and Oona went off to seek her fortune in Hollywood. Inspired by true events, with scenes, characterizations, dialogue, and letters imagined for dramatic purposes, Beigbeder asks the poignant question: What would they say to each other if they had met again years later? By Frédéric Beigbeder, illustrations by Rafael Alterio | 6¼ x 9¼ in. – 15 x 23.5 cm | 352 pages | 120 illustrations hardcover with jacket | ISBN: 9781614285540 | $35 – €35 – £28

I would have liked to have known if Salinger saw Oona again after the war. That’s obviously the starry-eyed teen in me. I think it was Oona who inspired the Catcher that would forbid us forever from growing old. FRÉ DÉ RIC B E IGB E DE R
