STAFF PICKS
 
All the Lonely People by Mike Gayle. What a gorgeous, brilliant book. The story follows a 'then' and 'now' structure as we learn about Hubert Bird's immigration from Jamaica to England and everything that follows. This is a love story that throws a few gut punches and is ultimately about community and belonging. Truly a favorite book of all time for me. - Carolyn
 
The Paper Palace by Miranda Cowley Heller. “This house, this place, knows all my secrets.” Heller gives a nod to Mrs. Dalloway here in her shimmering debut novel that takes place over the course of one fateful summer day at a family house on Cape Cod. Past and present collide, leaving the future of two long-intertwined families hanging in the balance. A compelling morality tale, expertly told. - Marion
 
The Seed Keeper by Diane Wilson (in paperback). A quiet but compelling novel about four Indigenous Dakota women struggling with generational trauma yet finding ways to connect with each other and preserve their way of life in the face of historical and environmental odds. A beautiful read for fans of Braiding Sweetgrass. - Alison
 
 The Wonder Test by Michelle Richmond. A page-turning thriller that explores the extreme lengths to which parents and a 1%  community will go to preserve their tony  life and ensure their children get into top schools. The  take-no-prisoners approach to high school students tackling the prestigious Wonder Test makes the college cheating scandals seem tame. And all hail a tough, smart new protagonist, FBI agent (and mom) Lina Connerly.  - Hut 
 
The Last Thing He Told Me by Laura Dave. Set in Sausalito and Austin, this fast-paced story of a husband's mysterious disappearance and the unexpected bonding of mother and step-daughter had me turning page after page. I just loved the Bay Area setting and the "in real time" energy. - Carolyn
 

My Year Abroad by Chang-rae Lee. A delightful globe-trotting trip/brick of a novel. Tiller, our young narrator, is witness to a host of adventures - sometimes moving, sometimes absurd - which collectively add up to a critique of late capitalism. For fans of The Goldfinch, but told with much more gonzo energy. - Nick
