UK-based writer and author Susy Atkins is an expert on selecting the right drink for every occasion. When she became the go-to girl for friends wondering what to serve at parties, she responded with Cocktails & Perfect Party Drinks, a collection of occasion-based drink recipes, wine and beer suggestions, and tips for hosts that promise to make every celebration a success.From dinner parties to summer BBQs, from New Year celebrations to ladies' nights out, special events pull people together and create a sense of community when the right drinks are served, Atkins believes. This means matching drinks to guests and matching wines to food, understanding the basics about wine, spirits and cocktails, and learning how certain drinks suit certain occasions and why some styles are seasonal. For girls' nights out, Atkins recommends one cocktail in a pitcher to share; for larger house parties, ask guests to bring a bottle of their favorite red or white wine; for intimate family gatherings, know what drinks guest prefer and serve those. For classic cocktail parties, Atkins recommends Martinis, which are perfect for breaking the ice, and Cosmopolitans to kick off a classy evening in the city. Her suggestions for dinner parties include recipes for washing down the feast, such as Gin and Tonic. Her ideas for pairing, such as sake and Japanese food, can turn alcohol into a lively topic of conversation. Susy Atkins' other books, including The Really Useful Guide to White Wine and The Really Useful Guide to Red Wine, have been praised for their conversational, down-to-earth style. That same personal, playful tone and festive color line drawings make this book almost as fun as the party itself.

How To Fall

A “delicately eccentric” collection of stories from the National Book Critics Circle Award-winning author of Binocular Vision (Publishers Weekly). “Put [Pearlman’s] stories besides those of John Updike and Alice Munro. That’s where they belong.” —Ann Patchett, author of Bel Canto Spanning no fewer than four countries in sixty years, the sixteen buoyant, brilliantly constructed stories in this award-winning volume flesh out the myriad complexities of people who, at first glance, live unremarkable lives. Widowers, old men, estranged spouses, young restaurant workers, career women and Jewish grandmothers are all at the center of Pearlman’s cool, studied observations. Each character is rendered with such unpredictable intricacy that they often astonish themselves just as much as the reader. Many of the stories either begin or wind their way back to one, mythical, two-by-three-mile Massachusetts town—Godolphin, a place that “called itself a town but was really a leafy wedge of Boston.” “Her writing is intelligent, perceptive, funny and quite beautiful . . . Pearlman’s view of the world is large and compassionate, delivered through small, beautifully precise moments.” —Roxana Robinson, The New York Times Book Review
