Our April selections for Books Through Bars NYC: What makes a Putin tick, what makes a sports icon iconic, and how to color between the lines
Three works for $30 (35% off retail)
Following March's campaign (collecting over 380 books! CORRECTION: 512!) that focused on perennial in-demand works (dictionaries, true crime, financial knowledge, and drawing guides), we get topical with Strongmen, Ruth Ben-Ghiat's acclaimed deconstruction of the authoritarian mindset. Going back 100 years historian Ben-Ghiat (who the New Yorker noted "specializes in male menace") shows the sad consistency of men who rule with an iron fist. As a counterpoint we also include a book about masculinity less toxic in nature: Tom Callahan's Gods at Play. Longtime sports journalist Callahan shares intimate portraits of athletes in the moments they made history. And rounding them out are a variety of adult coloring books (a commonly requested item) meditative in nature. A purchase of a bundle will include one from Cher Kaufmann's series at Countryman Press: Love, Peace, Dream, or Joy.
