    In The New York Times this Sunday.

    THE FORTUNE COOKIE CHRONICLES: Adventures in the World of Chinese Food, by Jennifer 8. Lee. (Twelve, $13.) An American-born Chinese (and a New York Times reporter), Lee investigates the Chinese restaurant business — the origin of fortune cookies (Japan), the beginning of door-to-door delivery in New York, the relationship of General Tso to the dish that bears his name. She also looks at the difficult lives of Chinese restaurant workers.

    Other books that are in paperback now: Bonk by Mary Roach, and “BUSH’S LAW: The Remaking of American Justice” by Eric Lichtblau.
