Dads, Grads, and Vacations

June is a great month — school's out, summer's in, and Dads have their day. At Mrs. Dalloway's, we can help you celebrate all three, with graduation gifts for all ages, great vacation reads, and lots of ideas for fathers, including our Dapper Den section that features intriguing accessories like flasks, bike repair kits, penknives, corkscrews, and even a selection of neckties & bow ties.

As for those summer reads, they're coming through the door every week. Here are few of the many titles we're excited about — you can click on any cover image to get more information or to order the book online.

Al Franken, Giant of the Senate by Al Franken. A lively, funny, and politically informative memoir by the former Saturday Night Live writer/performer who was elected senator of Minnesota by just over 300 votes and now, in his second term, is one of the country’s leading progressive voices. He delivers a barrel of laughs and lots of insider politics. Live from Washington, It's Al Franken!

Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay. The bestselling author of Bad Femniist writes with honesty, intimacy, and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health — a searingly honest memoir of food, weight, and self-image.

Do Not Become Alarmed by Maile Meloy. This page-turning thriller with literary sensibilities about two families who lose their children on a vacation in Central America has the book world buzzing. Ann Patchett called it "smart and thrilling and impossible to put down... the book that every reader longs for."

You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me by Sherman Alexie. The award-winning writer (Reservation Blues, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian) delivers an unflinching memoir of his conflicted relationship with his mother, who both loved and abused him. Alexie's writing prowess adds to the emotional power of his often wrenching story.

Before the Fall by Noah Hawley. The Edgar Award-winning novel about a mysterious plane crash is now in paperback! A corporate jet plummets after takeoff into the sea, delivering two unlikely survivors and an abundance of questions. Screenwriter and TV's Fargo creator Hawley is a master at building suspense; don't start this one without time on your hands.
