This June, Kick Back with a Book

June 2014
Well, summer has come to Cambridge, and at Harvard Book Store, the longer days just mean more time to read! So take advantage of these warm, sunlit evenings and kick back with a great book. Suggestions? See below! We've got everything from Jane Urquart's beautiful novel Sanctuary Line to Raymond Chandler's pulp classic Trouble Is My Business.

Happy reading!

Featured This Month:  
Sanctuary Line
by Jane Urquart
Solitary, nostalgic Liz Crane returns to her family's now-deserted
farm to study the migratory habits of the Monarch butterfly. Liz's reflections on the fragility and transience of human relations -- mirrored in the butterflies' restless migrations -- shape a nuanced and moving novel about family legacies, love, and betrayal.

The Mortal Sea:
Fishing the Atlantic in the Age of Sail
by W. Jeffrey Bolster

"A great and surprisingly readable history of New England fishing from its beginnings until the early 20th century. The current crisis has deep roots. This is an eye-opening book." --Alan H., Harvard Book Store

New In Paperback:  
Dirty Love
by Andre Dubus III

"Reading these stories is like visiting a classic steakhouse where the coolly professional waiters don't hold your cultivated taste for high-�concept haute cuisine against you, but rather decide to remind you what you've been missing by giving you one of the best dining experiences you've ever had." --Jeff Turrentine, The New York Times

Trouble Is My Business
by Raymond Chandler

"This was my first entry into pulps, and in my opinion it's a great entry point. Chandler's silk smooth language combined with the ultimate P.I. protagonist make it not just one of the best of its kind but a great work of fiction, period." --Isabel D., Harvard Book Store

April Spotlight on "From Farm to Table":
A Man, a Woman, a Restaurant, a Marriage 
by Molly Wizenberg

"Delancey is Wizenberg's grounded ode to the day-to-day toil and small-scale victories of launching a small business: the months of research, construction, hiring, firing, careful budgeting, and sheer physical labor. It's also a love letter to Seattle, the city's food scene, to indie businesses everywhere, and, of course, to pizza." 
--Liz S., Harvard Book Store

Harvard Square Book Circle
Behind the Beautiful Forevers


The Harvard Square Book Circle, our in-store book club, will discuss Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo's acclaimed book Behind the Beautiful Forevers.  


In this book, a bewildering age of global change and inequality is made human through the dramatic story of families striving toward a better life in Annawadi, a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport. 


With intelligence, humor, and deep insight into what connects people to one another in an era of tumultuous change, Behind the Beautiful Forevers, based on years of uncompromising reporting, carries the reader headlong into one of the twenty-first century's hidden worlds -- and into the hearts of families impossible to forget.
