The Case for Working with your Hands


Matthew Crawford: The case for working with your hands (Viking)
A philosopher who likes to fix old motorbikes muses on modern work. Artful, zen and fun.

Gerry Galvin: No Recipe (Doire Press)
Poems from the great intellectual of the Irish kitchen, and poems that are hard-wrought from a life of experience, yet filled with wonder. Funny, too.

Irish Times Health Supplement May 2010

“Eating is more important than sex – we do it at least three times a day at all ages and yet it merits little planning and insufficient time both in the preparation and partaking”. 

Gerry Galvin isn't just one of Ireland's best know chefs. He is also a poet – his debut volume, “No Recipe”, was lunched in Galway recently by Michael D. Higgins – and being a serious writer may explain Mr Galvin's ability to come up with unforgettable lines like: “Eating is more important than sex”.
