So Many Books...

Hoping that readers haven’t abandoned me after my long hiatus, I have an exciting list of titles for you to check out.  These are amazing books that have either recently been published or are about to appear on Flyleaf’s shelves.  Holiday gifts, anyone?

I haven’t read all of these, but I’ve read a few and people in the store have read others.  Always ask the staff about a book if you are uncertain.  They are very enthusiastic readers.

Telegraph Avenue by Michael Chabon
Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
Under Wildwood by Colin Meloy and Carson Ellis
The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling
NW by Zadie Smith
Elsewhere: A Memoir by Richard Russo
Joseph Anton: A Memoir by Salman Rushdie
Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
Back to Blood by Tom Wolfe
In Sunlight and In Shadow by Mark Helprin
The Round House by Louise Erdrich
The Middlesteins by Jami Attenberg

For those who want to support local authors/photographers in their work I'd like to recommend that you check out Eric Muller's book, Colors of Confinement: Rare Kodachrome Photographs of Japanese American Incarceration in World War II   
It's both lovely and haunting.  

In addition, photographer (and friend) Alex Harris has a new book out with E.O. Wilson entitled Why We Are Here:  Mobile and the Spirit of a Southern City.  I am biased, but I think this is a spectacular book.  

And coming soon to Flyleaf to read from her new book, The Inexplicables, Cherie Priest.  I have just finished Boneshaker and enjoyed it.  I am looking forward to hearing Cherie read from the new book on Friday, 30 November.

  1. I'm reading JK Rowling's Casual Vacancy now! I came to it with a heap of skepticism, but I was quickly won over; so much like Dickens, she explores every social strata of this fractured little town. It's great!
