Vagina: A New Biography is the latest work from best-selling author Naomi Wolf. In it, Wolf draws from evolutionary biology and neurobiological research to describe a critical and creative relationship between a woman's vagina and her brain. Wolf's first book The Beauty Myth was called one of the most important books of the 20th century by the New York Times.
Then, after writing an award-winning cookbook about Vietnamese cuisine and creating a series of guidebooks on Southeast Asia, it makes sense that writer Kim Fay's first novel is about the region she loves and knows best. Set in Cambodia in the 1920s, The Map of Lost Memories follows a museum curator named Irene Blum on her search for the truth of the lost civilization of Angkor Wat.
