Stories I Tell Myself: Growing Up with Hunter S. Thompson

It’s a careful yet harrowing account of an offbeat childhood, and of a father-and-son relationship that grew very dark before it began to admit hints of light.


The Big Sheep

Dystopian novels these days continue to be pumped out faster than greenhouse gases, but The Big Sheep offers a welcome break: a tale of our miserable tomorrow that's simultaneously sobering and fun.


Icon

In Persona, Suyana survived a gunshot. In Icon, Suyana calls the shots, and every shutter-click drives a bullet through the heart of her world.


What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours

Oyeyemi shows us what can be accomplished with absolute trust in the expansiveness of one’s imagination. If you’re feeling uncertain, just dip into What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours for the proof.


Disappearance at Devil's Rock

Even more head-spinning than its predecessor — the kind of book that takes the simple premise of a lost child and twists it into a dizzying emotional vortex.


We Were Never Here

No matter how small each character’s role in the tale is, Gilmore provides insight into their complex life.


Witness to the Revolution: Radicals, Resisters, Vets, Hippies, and the Year America Lost Its Mind and Found Its Soul

In Witness to the Revolution, we’re reminded, sometimes wistfully, sometimes viscerally, that each of us flawed human beings so often simultaneously plays the part of both problem and solution.


The Last Samurai

The Last Samurai is not about the mysteries of genius, male or female, but rather a return to an old ancient Greek lesson about fate and chance.


Vinegar Girl: A Novel

Vinegar Girl is a fizzy cocktail of a romantic comedy, far more sweet than acidic, about finding a mate who appreciates you for your idiosyncratic, principled self — no taming necessary.

Brighton

This mighty thriller will exhaust you and fool you, astonish you and hold you in its clutches. You may wish you could close your eyes, but they’ll be stuck wide open.


Nitro Mountain: A novel

Nitro Mountain feels like sixty polished pages stapled to another hundred of unedited notes.


The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palestine

With a journalist’s keen eye for detail and a novelist’s ardor for language and its ability to move people, Ehrenreich will incite renewed compassion in his readers.


Barkskins: A Novel

So, read it, absorb its urgent message — and try not to think about all the trees that probably went into those 713 pages.


The Lynching

It is endearing to read about those willing to fight injustice with more than just thoughts and prayers but with heroic action and personal risk. In these difficult times, it is an uplifting and inspiring story.


Last Night, a Superhero Saved My Life

A fantastic example of how heroes, real or made up, can change lives.... It serves as a testament to the staying power of story and how, sometimes, a fictional character can save a real life.


Barkskins: A Novel

Proulx is particularly effective in conveying the effect of one generation on the next.


I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Swift and sharply rendered, I’m Thinking of Ending Things contains psychic traces of Alfred Hitchcock (Vertigo) and Margaret Atwood (Surfacing) for the way that Reid massages facts through the filter of extreme anxiety.


The Girls: A Novel

So finely spun, it’s as if Cline’s prose is holding up a magnifying glass to the atmospheric pressure that surrounds fast friendship between girls – these girls, that is.


Barkskins: A Novel

With Barkskins it seems that Proulx cast the net too wide, overlooking what can be captured only by going deeper, bringing up to the surface the attributes of storytelling that excite and move us.
