Night Film by Marisha Pessi. It's new and has been featured in several New York publications since the author is a New Yorker. A thriller, Night Film tells the story of a journalist who becomes obsessed with the mysterious death of a young prodigy. 


Cavaa Spanish sparkling wine that comes in both white and rose varieties. Cava is best paired with rich foods, whether that's a a hearty meat like duck or pork, or pasta with a decadent sauce. Another unique pairing to try is Cava with fried foods. I interviewed a California winemaker once and she said surprisingly, Cava with fried chicken, potato chips, or french fries is fantastic.
