The Fall

The Fall is an extremely complicated book based on Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher”.

Station Eleven: A novel

This is not one of the year’s bolder or more soul-plumbing books. Pandemics ought to be a little less pleasant.

Wolf in White Van

Darnielle’s novel attempts to make sense of the insensible, to describe that inarticulable space where despite what came before, something still struggles to be born.

Dangerous Deception

A diverting, fast-paced thriller aimed at girls.

If I Knew You Were Going To Be This Beautiful, I Never Would Have Let You Go

Will Katie get her man? Will she make a break from this hard-luck population? The author’s masterful writing makes this short stay in Elephant Beach worthwhile.

Hiding in Plain Sight: A Novel

An unassuming triumph of straightforward, topical storytelling that both adds to and augments a body of work worthy of a Nobel Prize.

Maeve's Times: In Her Own Words
Kirkus Reviews : Maeve's Times (October 30, 2014)

A blithe, entertaining collection that will surely delight Binchy’s many fans.

Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence

An intriguing read, useful resource and definitive voice in defense of the divine in human culture.

Paper Love: Searching for the Girl My Grandfather Left Behind

Man V. Nature

Man v. Nature is quirky and dark, likely to hit the spot for a particular set of readers, but it's also an altogether fantastic collection.

Christmas at Tiffany's

Christmas at Tiffany's is an all around fun and heartwarming read, one that makes me seriously hope that more of Swan's titles will get picked up for US release in the near future.

The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

Heather O’Neill slowly peels away the layers of her characters to expose their most intimate thoughts in a very calculated way.

Motherland Fatherland Homelandsexuals

The book is tired with a metaphor-driven critique of persistent information overload. Everywhere we look it’s the 21st Century.

We Are Not Ourselves: A Novel

“We Are Not Ourselves” is a meticulous and moving debut that eschews the sweep of the big picture for the emotional truth of the extreme close-up.

Lock In

Lock In is smart, interesting, entertaining, and highly recommended.

Angry Optimist

Is it too much to ask for us readers to get a chuckle or two every, say, 20 pages or so? Springsteen and I would’ve liked that.
