Chef Nancy Silverton talks Mozza, La Brea Bakery bread and restaurants after lockdown

Kristen Loken’s new book “Food People (Are the Best People)” is an homage to the California food and beverage industry. Loken traveled the state, connecting with industry pros and focusing on how they’ve managed the pandemic, summer wildfires, and more over the past year. “Crisis breeds creativity, and connections make us all feel better, no matter what we’re going through,” says the storyteller-photographer, who crafts photo and word portraits of 129 chefs and restaurateurs, farmers, winemakers...

Author Michael Connelly, producer David E. Kelley and Netflix announced on Jan. 11 that they are teaming up to adapt Connelly’s “The Lincoln Lawyer” series for a TV series. The news comes as “Bosch,” the Amazon series that adapted Connelly’s Harry Bosch books, is set to end later this year after a seventh and final season. In a post to the Netflix blog, Connelly noted one of his few bright spots in an otherwise dreary 2020 came in November with the publication of “The Law of Innocence,” the sixt...

Lost series info on Kobo Libra

I have several Michael Connelly books from the Harry Bosch detective series. In Calibre they appear to have the series correctly labeled. And when I originally loaded them onto my Kobo Libra, in the device's interface they showed the series names/numbers correctly. But somewhere along the line, all of that series data disappeared from the Libra. I can't say for certain, but it appears to be the only series data that was lost on the device. Trying to fix it, I went into Calibre, deleted the book...

Search for an Author often fails

Before buying/getting a new eBook, I first do an author search in the Library to see if I already have it. This often fails because a click on the Authors column-heading in Library often responds to the author's first name rather the surname. For example, Jo Nesbo may appear as a 'J', Michael Connelly, as an 'M' and Bernard Cornwell, as a 'B'. As a result, I have sometimes obtained a book only to find, on trying the "Add Books", that I already have it in the library!! Thus, I need to check...

How Steph Cha’s ‘Your House Will Pay’ was inspired by a racially charged shooting and the LA Riots

Author Steph Cha had just finished the third book in her series about Juniper Song, a Korean-American private eye in Los Angeles, when a conversation on the radio captured her attention. The topic under discussion was the case of Latasha Harlins, an African-American teenager shot dead in 1991 in South Los Angeles by a Korean-American shopkeeper named Soon Ja Du. And Cha, 33, was shocked that she’d never heard about the killing. It was, along with the beating of Rodney King two weeks earlier, one...

The search for the woman who designed the ‘Creature of the Black Lagoon’ monster led to this ‘Lady’

With her debut book “The Lady from the Black Lagoon: Hollywood Monsters and the Lost Legacy of Milicent Patrick,” Mallory O’Meara set out to right a wrong. The harm was done more than 60 years ago to Milicent Patrick, the Universal Studios special effects shop artist who was denied credit for designing the Creature from the 1954 horror film, “Creature From the Black Lagoon.” Could this be the stuff of a motion picture? “I have to keep my lips zipped on that one,” said O’Meara, a Los Angeles-base...

Summer book stunts are the perfect way to recapture the freedom and fun of reading

In the summer of 1978, I walked to the library one afternoon and checked out every single Nancy Drew book they had. Though I was using my grandmother’s library card, the librarian ignored the obvious deception, as well as the well-posted loan limit, and I spent June, July and August in the fictional town of River Heights solving cases. Nancy Drew covers (courtesy of Penguin Random House) My love of both detective stories and reading stunts was born. Fast forward to the summer of 2018, and I’...

Thriller Writer Matt Richtel in Conversation with Lee Child

Back in 2014, Matt Richtel wrote a mesmerizing, compulsive, and very well-researched nonfiction book about a young man who drifted out of his lane on a Utah highway while texting and killed two rocket scientists coming the opposite way. The book was called A Deadly Wandering, and Amazon Senior Editor Jon Foro described the book this way: "Richtel has combined his savvy as a New York Times science reporter with his skill as a writer of technology-infused thrillers to weave two separate, if rela...

series crossovers.

Is there a way to add a 2nd series to a book so that I can read books in the correct order. Michael Connelly has a series of Harry Bosch books and Mickey Haller books. In the books that both characters appear but one is clearly the main character I'd like to give that a full number in that series and give it a half number in the supporting characters series. I hope this makes sense to you.
