Availability: Ready for delivery or usually ships in 3-5 days
Published: Celadon Books - June 28th, 2022

Beautiful and unsettling, Elsewhere is a novel I can't stop thinking about. Not usually one for dystopian fiction, I started listening to this on Libro.fm and soon was captivated by this haunting, cloud-covered place and close-knit community from which women occasionally disappear. (Ell Potter's narration perfectly captures its eerie atmosphere.) The families who live here wonder about the world beyond, known only as "Elsewhere," especially when a stranger comes to visit. But, no matter how uncertain the future is for mothers in this place, they wouldn't consider leaving. Why, you'll wonder, as you're drawn in by the mystery of this place and its people. How deep is devotion, and much should motherhood require of a woman? I can imagine book clubs debating this one at length!

Trust By Hernan Diaz Cover Image
$28.00
ISBN: 9780593420317
Availability: Ready for delivery or usually ships in 3-5 days
Published: Riverhead Books - May 3rd, 2022

TRUST is a tour de force we want you to try. This novel is a metafictional delight about money and power and, ultimately, trust. Set in the early 1920s, with four narratives that at times intersect and at other times compete, this book is really about its characters: Benjamin Rask, a legendary Wall Street tycoon; Helen Rask, his wife who ends up in a Swiss sanitarium; and Ida Partenza, the Brooklyn-born daughter of an anarchist printer tasked with helping Rask write and unravel his biography. We’re still thinking about TRUST—its mystery and its moral questions—long after we finished.
