September 22nd, 2021 · No Comments · Books, City Library, Main Branch, West Branch

Animals abound in unexpected ways in the September edition of BookPage. From a scientist’s investigation into criminal behavior in the animal world to speculation of Einstein’s hypothetical encounter with time-traveling mouse, some prolific authors have turned to nature for their next muse.

  • Fuzz: When nature breaks the law by Mary Roach. An in-depth interview reveals why the science writer decided to turn her attention to critters that steal food, invade homes, or commit outright murder. Other books by this author are already on the shelf at Manchester City Library: Grunt : the curious science of humans at war ; Gulp : adventures on the alimentary canal ; Stiff: the curious lives of human cadavers.
  • Einstein by Torben Kuhlmann – Author / illustrator Torben Kuhlman has a thing for mice. This book review examines his story weaving skills as he asks the age old question: “What if Einstein was inspired by a time-traveling mouse?” To get a taste for Kuhlman’s use of illustration and writing, check out  Moletown from our fiction shelves.
  • The Secret History of Food by Matt Siegel –  Author Matt Siegel offers up some of the strange facts from his book in this feature story, including how Patagonia Toothfish came to be called Chilean Sea Bass, and Cuban leader Fidel Castro’s quest for a supercow that could out-produce American dairy cows. The list might just make you curious to check out Siegel’s book from our print collection!

You can pick up a print copy of BookPage at the Manchester City Library at the Information Desk in the library rotunda and at the West Branch. Use it to find out what’s new in the book world, choose your next reading material, or learn about authors you’ve never read before!
