  • Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain

    Anthony Bourdain’s memoir can only be described as a wild ride. Taking us on a journey through the culinary underbelly, portrayed by Bourdain as a sometimes seedy yet unabashedly honest world, this book reads as a heartfelt tribute to food in all its forms and to those who make it. I felt myself drawn in by the world he paints for us; a career, lifestyle and life so different from my own. In this edition, especially, the inclusion of Bourdain’s handwritten scribbles feel extremely special, like a close friend guiding you through the book. - Sarah, Harry Hartog Marrickville

  • The Escape Artisy by Jonathan Freedland

    The Escape Artist tells the story of Rudolf Vrba, who at 19years old along with Alfréd Wetzler were the first Jewish escapees of Auschwitz. From the brutal details of life in the camps to the infuriating inaction of allied powers this book is a detailed account of life as a Jewish prisoner in Eastern Europe during the Second World War. - Elijah, Harry Hartog Burnside

  • The Queen is Dead by Stan Grant

    The Power of this book is hard to put into words, I believe everyone would benefit from reading it at least once. It’s full of all the love and the pain that is felt by Stan and all people that suffer racism and bigotry, it made me feel guilty for being so blind to my white privileged life. I thank Stan for opening my eyes and teaching me Yindyamarra, an ethos that we should all live by. - Michelle, Harry Hartog Bondi
