Geoff Page Matschoss is a man whose world is a stage – and the people on it are his muses, his inspirations. The reader travels with the writer guided by the perception and clarity of the writing. Wendy O’Hanlon The boy was fascinated by theatre. He was intrigued by new places and by new journeys, from a very young age. He was always full of mischievous ideas. His head was full of noises, and only the theatre could calm him, pull his restless mind into a single story, make him listen and give shape to his dreams. The boy loved everything about theatre, and even after sixty years, he still does. The boy grew up cushioned by the voice of his father, which was wrapped around vowels and consonants and arranged in fascinating configurations. When he was very small, his father often read stories to him, and the words quickly left the page and became people – people with faces, bodies and unique voices; people that cared and wanted to do good; people that were happy. When the people had a blue day, his father’s voice, and his hand gently stroking the boy’s head, made sure that many soothing colors would be just around the corner. The boy loved those moments and loved those stories because they were akin to little plays, performed just for him. Explore the wonderful world of a creative mind through the pages of Rain Overnight.

Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog She Simmers.

Who can say no to a delicious plate of Pad Thai with Shrimp; a fresh, tangy Green Papaya Salad; golden Fried Spring Rolls; or a rich, savory Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish? Thai food is not only one of the most vibrant, wonderfully varied cuisines in the world, it also happens to be one of the tastiest, and a favorite among American eaters.

The good news is, with the right ingredients and a few basic tools and techniques, authentic Thai food is easily within reach of home cooks. Take it from Leela Punyaratabandhu, a Bangkok native and author of the popular Thai cooking blog She Simmers. In her much-anticipated debut cookbook, Leela shares her favorite recipes for classic Thai fare, including beloved family recipes, popular street food specialties, and iconic dishes from Thai restaurant menus around the world.

All of Leela’s recipes have been tested and tweaked to ensure that even the busiest cook can prepare them at home. With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, Simple Thai Food is a complete primer for anyone who wants to give Thai cooking a try. By the end of the book, you’ll be whipping up tom yam soup and duck red curry that will put your local takeout joint to shame. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll discover an exciting new world of Thai flavors and dishes—including Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam, Leaf-Wrapped Salad Bites, and Crispy Wings with Three-Flavored Sauce—that will open your eyes to all the wonderful possibilities that real Thai cooking has to offer.
The haiku that punctuate Joachim Matschoss' travels work as luminous mile-markers, cryptic road signs and legends on maps that trail off into myth and legend. Matschoss understands that the language of intimacy between humans extends to interactions with landscape, history, animals and weather. These haiku find the sum of their many parts in a palpable immediacy and longing. - Anthony Lawrence Matschoss devotes himself to an ancient art form that captures the moment before it escapes, and he does it with humour, insight, whimsy, a keen ear, and a sharp eye. In publishing so many haikus, he shares his unique take on the world. Reading them, you may be inspired to create and share yours. - Arnold Zable Travels with Myself is a perfect title for this brilliant Haiku collection by theatre-maker, poet and playwright, Joachim Matschoss. A busy life is hauled back again and again to quiet moments – to pictures in rich words. - Irish poet, Terry McDonagh What is never lost in Travels with Myself is the primacy of experience and the direct way of finding its expression. These haikus are clear-eyed, meditative and full of surprises. - Frank Rullow This book is a phantasmagoria of words beautifully crafted to engage the senses of the reader. As one turns each page, words fall into place, and the journey begins through the neon-lit streets of the poet’s mind. He entices us into his reality festooned with irony, futility and an acceptance of life with all its surprises. Truly a travel book for those that rarely leave or have never left home even when they travel. - Mark Ulyseas
