  • Station Eleven

    Emily St. John Mandel

    Yes! It’s a Shakespearean apocalypse novel, sort of. Now that I have your attention: What would happen to us after a plague? Station Eleven is a wonderfully balanced, thoughtful and immediate novel on how art and people might carry on in a primitive new world. A National Book Award Finalist.

  • The Betrayers

    David Bezmozgis

    A brilliant, fast-paced story that probes murky ethical dilemmas - from the personal to the political - with uncanny precision and surprising compassion.  The best book I've read this year.

  • The Book of Strange New Things

    Michel Faber

    This novel is one of those grab you and hold you into the wee hours reading experiences. Characters and scenes are deftly evoked, pulling the reader into the strange and the familiar of a far away world. If you like David Mitchell, Haruki Murakami, John Irving, and Margaret Atwood, The Book of Strange New Things is the next big mesmerizing novel you’ve been looking for.
