Holiday Picks for 2020

Well, this has been a year... or several. We won't have the normal December/January traditions of going to parties, or vanishing to warmer climes (although November contained more warm weather than some summers). Gathering around the table, tree, or menorah won't happen for most of us. Here's are a few things we humbly submit as perhaps suitable gifts for friends and family.

Weird, odd, one-off gems

There are a few oddities and hidden gems in our basement that need homes. Books that hung around too long, or were a special order for a staff member. First come, first serve, and not exactly on our website. If you want one of these, email Noah directly. Check back here for updates!


Long in the dim dark past some Cavershamsters ordered this for a lark, or house warming gifts, or something. We got stuck with an extra copy. Modernist Cuisine at Home (link to the publisher) opens up a new world of culinary possibility for passionate and curious home cooks. Drawing on the same commitment to perfection that produced Modernist Cuisine: The Art and Science of Cooking, this award-winning, 456-page volume applies innovative techniques to classic home dishes. Filled with helpful scientific insights, mouthwatering recipes, gorgeous photography, and step-by-step guides, Modernist Cuisine at Home makes it easy to bring dining of the highest quality to your own dinner table. For $120.00.

Two older titles that check out. Deadly Therapy: Lessons in liveliness from theater and performance theory by Michael Karson is a hardcover published in 2008. A paperback was never announced and we still have a hardcover.

Therapists have a lot to learn from theater professionals about helping people narrate important conflicts, understand uplifting ideas, and engage in illuminating interactions. Analysis of theater has also produced Goffman's dramaturgical vision of reality, in which people are beset with performance problems including defining situations, forming teams, casting roles, and managing discrediting information. A dramaturgical understanding of psychotherapy is articulated in this book, with a focus on living up to situational norms intrinsic to therapy and managing performance failures associated with the roles of therapist and patient. Norms derive from rules and categories in society and in therapy that help people know how to behave, but which also produce self-serving hegemonies of privilege and power, even in therapy. Performance theory, encompassing audience engagement, dramaturgy, gender studies, power and privilege dynamics, critical thinking, and multiculturalism, is used to investigate the "party lines" that get established in therapy and supervision, and to suggest ways to temper the deadening effects of rules and categories.
