"Christmas in the Hood" by Nikki Turner features stories by K. Elliot, Dee Blackmon, Seth "Soul Man' Ferranti, Mo Shines, and J. M. Benjamin with an introduction by K'wan. In "Secret Santa," after her children's Christmas presents are stolen, a woman has to decide what she's willing to sacrifice to give them the holiday they deserve. In "Me and Grandma," a senior sleighs more crack than candy canes to bring Christmas cheer to her needy grandkids. And in "Holiday Hell," Noelle must raise $23,000 to repay a loan shark or her sister will become a ghost of Christmas past. These are all gritty tales that reveal what the holidays bring for the naughty and the nice who live by the code of the street. True to the streets and true to the season. "Christmas in the Hood" (One World Trade Paperback, $13.95, ISBN: 978-0-345-4980-2)

"THE ELEMENTS OF COOKING: Translating the Chef's Craft for Ever Kitchen" by Michael Ruhlman  is composed of eight well-researched and highly opinionated essays on topics vital to cooking: Stock, Sauce, Salt, The Egg, Heat, Tools, Sources and Acknowledgements and Finesse. It isn't so much about how to cook, but how to love to cook. With simple, beautiful writing, it can be read in an afternoon; yet its lessons will be practiced for a lifetime. The book also features an introduction by Chef Anthony Bourdain, host of the television show "No Reservations." "The Elements of Cooking" (Simon & Schuster Nov. 6, 2007, $24, 256 pages, ISBN: 978-0-7432-9978-7)
