Heat : an amateur's adventures as kitchen slave, line cook, pasta maker, and apprentice to a Dante-quoting butcher in Tuscany by Bill Buford( Book )
13 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 1,479 libraries worldwide
Writer Buford's memoir of his headlong plunge into the life of a professional cook. Expanding on his award-winning New Yorker article, Buford gives us a chronicle of his experience as "slave" to Mario Batali in the kitchen of Batali's three-star New York restaurant, Babbo. He describes three frenetic years of trials and errors, disappointments and triumphs, as he worked his way up the Babbo ladder from "kitchen bitch" to line cook, his relationship with the larger-than-life Batali, whose story he learns as their friendship grows through (and sometimes despite) kitchen encounters and after-work all-nighters, and his immersion in the arts of butchery in Northern Italy, of preparing game in London, and making handmade pasta at an Italian hillside trattoria.--From publisher description

Pancha tantra by Walton Ford( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and German and held by 194 libraries worldwide
"This book features a natural selection: Ford's beautifully savage beasts and birds. Walton Ford's watercolors of animals could be mistaken for 19th century natural science illustrations or British colonial paintings. Except they're not. Something strange and usually sinister is happening in each of Ford's works, whether it's a wild turkey crushing a small parrot with its claw, a collection of monkeys wreaking havoc on a formally set dinner table, or an American buffalo surrounded by a pack of bloodied white wolves ... in the middle of a proper French garden. Painted with the deft technique of a technical artist, Ford's works vibrate with an intensity of uncanny familiarity; they are both reassuring in style and disturbing in content. With titles like Au Revoir Zaire, Necropolis, and Dirty Dick Burton's Aide de Camp, and Space Monkey, his paintings open the doors to a world of real-life fantasy, dreams, and nightmares - all with a stunning candor that almost belies the artist's intentions. Collected together for the first time as a limited-edition book, and now available as a popular edition, Ford's bestiary takes its name from one of the texts he frequently refers back to in his work: The Pancha Tantra, the ancient Indian book of animal fables collected from 3rd-5th Centuries B.C. and considered to be the precursor to Aesop's Fables. This book provides an in-depth exploration of Walton Ford's oeuvre. It also includes a complete professional biography as well as substantial excerpts from the textual sources for the paintings, from Vietnamese folktales and the letters of Benjamin Franklin to the Autobiography of Benvenuto Cellini and John James Audubon's Ornithological Biography."

The Womanizer by Richard Ford( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 68 libraries worldwide
Der Frauenheld und Erzähler Martin Austin, ein Mann aus den Vororten Chicagos, Handlungsreisender und in seiner Freizeit Trainer eines Little-League-Baseballteams, ein ganz gewöhnlicher Amerikaner also, mit Ehefrau und Eigenheim, kinderlos, verliebt sich während einer Geschäftsreise in eine Pariserin 'von eigenartiger Schönheit'. Mit ihr erhofft er sich eine romantische Affäre. Aber der sonst so selbstsichere, glatte Austin verliert sich bloss in einer blutleeren Romanze und schlittert - ohne es zu merken - auf direktem Weg in die Katastrophe. 'Der Frauenheld' ist eine brillant erzählte Novelle in der besten Tradition von Henry James: Ein Amerikaner in Paris, der nicht der Liebe, sondern einem krassen Fall von Selbsttäuschung erliegt
