I am a graduate in English literature and language from Oxford and in religious studies from NYU. In 1999, I co-founded Lantern Books, a publisher of books on vegetarianism, animal advocacy, spirituality, and natural healing.

I founded a monthly magazine Satya, and was its editor for five and a half years. In 1999, I published The Way of Compassion: Vegetarianism, Environmentalism, Animal Advocacy, and Social Justice. In 2003, I published my novel Nicaea: A Book of Correspondences with Lindisfarne Books.

I'm the co-author of Right Off the Bat: Baseball, Cricket, Literature, and Life; The Polar Bear in the Zoo: A Speculation; The Elephants in the Room: An Excavation; and (with Ruth Heidrich), Lifelong Running. Most recently, I have authored a

Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson

This year, I’ve had the great privilege to go to Montgomery, Alabama to visit the Equal Justice Initiative’s museum on slavery, Jim Crow, and the prison-industrial complex, and EJI’s stunning memorial to those who were lynched in the U.S. between 187 ...more

Strangers in Their Own Land by Arlie Russell Hochschild

A deeply sympathetic, well-written, extensively researched, richly described, and in some ways moving examination of the anxieties, belief systems, and assumptions of white conservatives in the polluted bayous of Louisiana, Strangers in Their Own Lan ...more

Brave Teaching by Krissy Pozatek

I'm the publisher of this book, and thought I'd say a few words about it. Krissy's work has always struck me as an interesting balance of a liberal openness to the emotions and life experiences of a child with a conservative commitment to discipline ...more

Only the Animals by Ceridwen Dovey
Only the Animals
by Ceridwen Dovey (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dovey’s conceit is clever and well-executed: to investigate the role of the animal in the human imagination, by connecting animals written about by humans, or telling stories in the style of certain writers, or presenting a biography of the human thr ...more

Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
Rate this book
Clear rating
Big-picture thinking of the best sort, SAPIENS is by turns wry and scathing as it kills sacred cow after sacred cow in its journey through our 200,000-year species. Hariri has no interest either in lauding human achievements or in painting us as gras ...more

I Am Malala by Malala Yousafzai

A remarkably mature, well-paced, and illuminating memoir from a remarkable young woman, I AM MALALA does an admirable job in placing a short life within the seven decade saga of Pakistan, and its turbulent and dysfunctional history, in context. The g ...more

Yoga for the Wounded Heart by Tatiana Forero Puerta
Rate this book
Clear rating
I am the publisher of this book, and I thought I'd say a few words about it. Writing interesting books about yoga—without resorting to recondiate analyses of sutras or dumbing it down to be about looking good and wearing the write gear—is hard. Writi ...more

The Big Sleep by Raymond Chandler
Rate this book
Clear rating
First time reading Chandler. We all know the movie, of course, and it's hard not think of Bogart and Bacall, but the writing is as fresh and tough as ever. Huge amounts of style and atmosphere; and I loved the cynicism and sleaze that surrounded the ...more

Clean Meat by Paul Shapiro
Rate this book
Clear rating
I've known Paul Shapiro for two decades, and as a fellow animal activist and vegan I was predisposed to like this book—and so I did. It was a shrewd idea to write about "cultured," "cellular," or "clean" meat at this time, since it's only been five y ...more
