BOOKS

Some Are Always Hungry

by Jihyun Yun

Praise from Publishers Weekly:

“In this excellent debut, Yun lingers over descriptions in precise and evocative language.”

The Spanish Craze: America’s Fascination with the Hispanic World, 1779-1939

by Richard L. Kagan

Review in Albuquerque Journal:

“… a lively, readable, widely focused work that argues the United States has been enamored with Spain and the Spanish world off and on for 140 years.”

Sky Songs: Mediations on Loving a Broken World

by Jennifer Sinor

Praise from Kirkus Reviews:

“A lyrically profound collection.”

Issei Baseball: The Story of the First Japanese American Ballplayers

by Robert K. Fitts

Review in Spectrum Culture:

“For anyone who loves baseball or Japanese culture or, preferably, both – in other words, anyone who lists Takeshi Kitano’s Boiling Point as among their favorite films – this is a fantastic book that covers a less regarded aspect of the origins of the game in Japan.”
