At small cost, a book can be a fantastic gift. And if you customize it with a signature--even better! There are so many gorgeous books available from Red Room authors--I'm partial to books by Belle Yang--but of course I would love it if you selected one of my books as a gift. My Chanukah book, One For Each Night: Chanukah Tales and Recipes, from Celtic Cat Publishing, offers vibrant illustrations, funny stories, and my mother-in-law's recipes (she used to be a dessert caterer in Philadelphia.)
Last Love Poems of Paul Eluard, from Black Widow Press, which I translated, will seal the deal if you want romance! He's on equal footing with Neruda, and you can't miss with this one.
And my poetry book, Packing Light: New and Selected Poems, is a good starter book for people who want to make friends with poetry, but it's also a fine gift for poetry afficionados.
I'd be happy to send you signed books for your gifts if you prefer, or you can order from Amazon or from Black Widow Press: http://www.blackwidowpress.com/
All cheers and happy Thanksgiving! I'm grateful for your company on Red Room. The world is more humane and intelligent because of you! Marilyn
