NPR stories about Ben Ryder Howe
Novelist T.C. Boyle takes on a California environmental battle while Mary Doria Russell takes a fresh look at the Wild West of Doc Holliday and Wyatt Earp. In nonfiction, Sarah Vowell tours Hawaii, Charles Fishman looks at the future of water, Allen Shawn reflects on being a twin, and Ben Ryder Howe on running a Brooklyn deli.
Some of the best summers are those filled with journeys, reunions and good food — three themes that factor prominently in the books recommended by our independent booksellers.
In Ben Ryder Howe's funny new memoir, My Korean Deli, the author explains how he helped his wife's family buy a Brooklyn bodega — and then spent his nights working there, while trying to balance his day job as an editor at The Paris Review.
