Here is a short teaser of the opening paragraph to what Stefan is calling one of his favorite novels of the year


"The taxi's radio was tuned to a classical FM broadcast. Jan´┐Żček's Sinfonietta-probably not the ideal music to hear in a taxi caught in traffic. The middle-aged driver didn't seem to be listening very closely, either. With his mouth clamped shut, he stared straight ahead at the endless line of cars stretching out on the elevated expressway, like a veteran fisherman standing in the bow of his boat, reading the ominous confluence of two currents. Aomame settled into the broad back seat, closed her eyes, and listened to the music. " 


We will stay open throughout Monday night so no need to wait outside in the cold. Questions? Call the store, stop by, or email us.
