Staff picks from Foyles Birmingham Grand Central
We've been picking some of our current favourite books here at Foyles Birmingham.
Guillermo Del Toro's The Shape of Water: Creating a Fairy Tale for Troubled Times
by Guillermo Del Toro.
Guillermo Del Toro, master of all things wondrous, magical and creepy is back with his new film The Shape of Water. The film is the story of Elisa, a cleaner at a government lab, who falls in love with a creature who is being experiment on. This book celebrates the release of the new film by giving readers a behind the scenes look at the production design and concept art as well as character profiles and interviews with the cast. This book made me appreciate the work, detail and art behind the film. I cannot recommend this book enough.
The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr.
Meet Flora, she is seventeen, resourceful and can't remember anything since she was ten years old. Flora writes all vital information on her arm, how old she is, what to do and what to avoid. But the day after a party Flora has one new memory. Emotive, insightful and clever, this one is very difficult to put down.
Food and Cooking of Africa & The Middle East.
Of all the cookbooks that I have this is probably the one I use the most when I need a new recipe. With a wide variety of flavourful dishes, lots of pictures and step by step instructions, this book is practical and easy. I particularly recommend the Beef Tagine with Sweet Potatoes on page 165 and the Baklava recipe on page 218. They're so good.
