Alix Kates Shulman
Shulman has been chronicling the changing role of women in American society since the release of Memoirs of an Ex-Prom Queen. With Menage she delivers a wise and witty novel of modern marriage. Paperback.
An old fashioned adventure story set in the espionage stage of WWII. An ordinary young woman in England, a native French speaker, is recruited as an agent. Romance, violence and deception make this a fine page-turning literary thriller. Paperback.
As much a thriller as it is a gripping portrait of the city of today, Tabloid City is a new fiction classic from the writer who has captured it perfectly for decades. Just the right book to get lost in. Paperback and Ebook.
|The Troubled Man|
Haven't read any Mankell yet? "Arguably Mankell's best Wallander book-which makes the finale for his rule-breaking, overeating, over-drinking, depressed but ultimately good-hearted and righteous detective all the more poignant." -The Plain Dealer
Hilarious! "Albert Brooks is a keen and critical social observer...His first novel is an inspired work of social science fiction, thoughtful and ambitiously conceived, both serious and seriously funny."--Boston Globe Paperback and Ebook

|The Legend of Pradeep Mathew|
The indie book critics are gushing about this one. "The Great Sri Lankan novel" and "To refer to The Legend of Pradeep Mathew as a book about cricket is a sin tantamount to calling Moby Dick a book about a whale" and on. Obviously we have to read it! Judge a book by its' cover - sure do! Paperback and Ebook
|The Last Hundred Days|
The last hundred days of Rumanian Communism in a gripping page-turner written with poetic flair. A debut novel for McGuinness, The Last Hundred Days
is fiction, but feels like nonfiction, with spies, party aparatchicks, dissidents and diplomats. A real gem, Paperback
|This Life is in Your Hands|Melissa Coleman Coleman's searing chronicle tells the true story of her upbringing on communes and sustainable farms along the rugged Maine coastline in the 1970's, embedded within a moving, personal quest for truth that her experiences produced. Paperback and Ebook.
|The Cranes Dance|
An edgy, provocative and ultimately touching story of the complex ties of sisters, the demands of the intense world of ballet, and responsibility to those we love. Paperback and Ebook.
| IQ84 |
If the hardcover was too daunting to hold, this 3 volume paperback set is just right! "A grand, third-person, all encompassing meganovel. It is a book full of anger and violence and disaster and weird sex and strange new realities, a book that seems to want to hold all of Japan inside of it."
-The New York Times Magazine
