It s Whoopi here and I ve written this book that, frankly, is the last book anyone would expect from me. Sure, you know me as an Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony Award winner (that s an EGOT in case you weren t sure) and a producer and a writer (11 books) and a designer (ah, those crazy holiday sweaters) but you would never think of me as someone with the courage to say, You have everything you need to be fabulous in your own home and set a great table. Let s face it, you look at a lot of books on Entertaining and think to yourself I could never do this in my house, I don t have this stuff and it s not going to look like what I m seeing. That s not what s going to happen here! I want to show you there is great heart in setting the table. Setting it for two or four or the kids or Halloween or for tea just for you. For dinners with friends or for the holidays. I m going to tell you stories about what I do when people come over, and I m going to give you ideas about what you re seeing because Honey, everything in this book is what you can do in your house. You got a 7/11 near you? They sell flowers. Take those bad boys and put them on your table. You got some crazy, kind of cool-looking old plate from your grandmother (or maybe even a fancy silver one) and you don t know what to do with it? You got little kid s toys that have been annoying you forever, put them on the table too. Who s going to tell you it s wrong? Not me! I m going to tell you it s right and I m going to take you on a journey. And don t forget the bathroom; decorate it too, people are going to see it. It s all at your house. Come with me. I ll show you! P.S. I know the glass on the cover is broken. Accidents can happen at every great party!

Gabrielle Hamilton meets April Bloomfield in a lyrically written memoir about life as a female butcher. When 16-year-old Jessica Wragg applied for a job at the local farm shop in her hometown of Chesterfield, England, she never expected to land a position behind the all-male butchery counter. Young and enthusiastic, and fueled by a newfound fascination with the craft, Wragg quickly realized that she was an outcast in a world of middle-aged men who spoke a secret language to fool customers and were reluctant to share the tricks of their trade with a novice. A decade later, against all odds, Wragg is pulling back the curtain on an industry that is still problematically set in its old-school ways. Like her female counterparts in the restaurant world, she has had to fight to establish herself in the meat industry, memorizing muscle and bone and tendon, while battling sexism and ageism. Girl on the Block is a fish-out-of-water story that blends Wragg's personal journey with an exploration of the sanctity of her craft and an honest look at the modern meat industry. A tour through one of the oldest, dirtiest, and most fascinating professions, Girl on the Block is Wragg's tale of returning home with blood on her boots at the end of fourteen-hour days and finding her way in the end.
