Comment on Top Shelf: ‘Circe’ by Madeline Miller by New Releases 4/10 – BookPeople

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 22:49:24 +0000

[…] We are so enthralled with Madeline Miller’s new book Circe that bookseller Sara L picked it for our Top Shelf Review! Sara says, “In 2018, Circe is basically a punchline for any and all pig-related jokes. Madeline Miller’s Circe, a spiritual sequel to The Song of Achilles, emerges in our bookstore to remind readers just who the infamous sorceress truly is … The writing is lush and intimate, once again inviting the reader into a magic as different, yet just as special, as Circe’s: a magic that is unleashed whenever Miller picks up a pen.” Read the rest of Sara’s review here.  […]

Comment on Jonathan Evison on beer, Ginsberg & shouting at parking meters by New Releases 4/3 – BookPeople

Tue, 03 Apr 2018 21:48:48 +0000

[…] We’re so excited Jonathan Evison is coming by the store to celebrate his new book Lawn Boy! His new novel follows a young Chicano in Washington state trying to discover the secret to achieving the American dream. Bookseller Will B says, “Lawn Boy is at times irreverent, hilarious, and heartbreaking but it is first and foremost, always honest. I am from a rural community originally and this struck a chord with me because I recognize the feelings and life Evison portrays — a very real glance at what it feels like to be in your 20s and just trying to figure out what the hell you want to do with your life — is money all that’s important? Is family? We all have to find our own answers. I heartily recommend this book to those looking for a good read that will make you think (while you laugh and wince and rage along with the characters).” Check out our interview with Jonathan here.  […]
