At FiveBooks, we’ve launched a weekly series on American Progressivism.
  Every Sunday for ten weeks, we will be interviewing a well-known figure in
  the field. Our first expert is Congressman [1]Keith Ellison, who tells us
  what progressives stand for and how they differ from liberals. Look out for
  Paul Krugman next Sunday, talking about books for liberal economists.

Also don’t miss today’s interview with British food critic [2]Giles Coren.
  He recommends five cookery books, and says, “I am the only person in England
  who knows anything about food who isn’t 30 stone.”
