One Big Table

Ten years in the making, sumptuously presented, and suffused with the love that Americans lavish on the food they bring to their tables, Molly O'Neill's compendium of "600 Recipes from the Nation's Best Home Cooks, Farmers, Fishermen, Pit-Masters and Chefs" is cause for thanksgiving all by itself.

July 22: On this day in 1941, on his twelfth wedding anniversary, Eugene O'Neill presented the just-finished manuscript of Long Day's Journey into Night to his wife, Carlotta.

Crime fiction legends Dennis Lehane and Michael Connelly discuss the new book that unites their beloved sleuths Patrick Kenzie and Harry Bosch.
