Jonathan Safran Foer confronts the trauma of 9/11 through the story of a nine year old boy on an urgent secret mission. This book is tender, humorous and ultimately healing.


Fascinating, complex and quotidien, Middlemarch will entrance romance, fiction, and history buffs alike. The novel's subtitle, "A Study of Provincial Life" accurately infers the intimacy and exactitude with which Eliot dissects the culture of the 19th century Englishh countryside.

THE quintessential book on film editing. Any aspiring filmmaker should read this!

"Education is no substitute for intelligence. What do you despise? By this are you truly known. Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. Give as few orders as possible... Once you've given orders on that subject, you must always give orders on that subject. Repression makes a religion flourish. Humans are almost always lonely.

Youth, 1970s New York, friendship, love and rock and roll -- this book has everything. Patti Smith is a gift to us all.


Please god do not let this horrible cover throw you off. This series is spectacular - my favorite of Le Guin's and she's written many series. And unlike the Dune phenomenon of books worsening as the series progresses, (please don't get me wrong though - if the first book starts at 50 million points, Chapterhouse is still pretty incredible) this series truly gets better the further on in you go. Tehanu in particular is GOOD. I recall there being tears of awe.


A book when you feel adrift. An anchor against the riptide of thoughts that make us all feel isolated. A book that reminds us that our lives are a collection of moments and that we can't let one moment stop us from moving forward.

Quite possibly the greatest storyteller in the history of music, Bob Dylan finally decides to set the record straight on the myths surrounding his life. And by 'set-the-record-straight', of course I mean completely make most of this book up and make things more muddled and confusing. Classic Dylan! Will there ever be a Chronicles, Vol. 2? The answer, my friend...


Pride and Prejudice meets a Comedy of Errors, The Unhoneymooners is sweet and sassy, fun and funny, and an absolute must read!


A love story that encapsulates topics of race, immigration, interracial relationships, returning home after leaving, and more! Spanning three countries and multiple decades, this is an incredible story.

If given the opportunity to learn when, but not how you were going to die, would you?


How did one man, who was never elected to any public office, become the most powerful figure in New York for half a century, and create the city and island we know today? This biography may appear daunting at first, but it is brilliantly written and impeccably researched. It is also very likely the best book about modern New York and Long Island that you will ever read. 


These poems are perfect for filling a quiet moment. Often about New York and love - these are poems you can carry with you, poems you will revisit again and again.

A delightful, feel-good romance that will make you smile with every page


Eerily beautiful, as terrifying as it is terrific. Told through the perspective of a woman who has been requested to only refer to herself as her title, "the biologist." Think Annie Dillard meets H.R. Giger.


Queer! Cyber! Punk! A collection of short stories with something for everyone who's ever felt displaced.


Want to learn to read your birthchart, but don't know where to start? Let Chani, internet darling, be your guide.

The first time I truly broke down and sobbed after reading something was when I finished this book. "Tell me about the rabbits, George."


The winding, the turning, the modern and all its existential dread, from this meek man's musings to himself that I read to myself back then, right now, and in the days ahead and, all in all, in the end, silent tears shall be shed.

A comical, heartwrechning way-too-real-at-times insight into a disheveled sexual awakening that I wish I was able to read in High School. Prepare to cry.


My favorite book ever! Once you read this book, it will never let you go. You join the unending chase between human + inhuman, between boneaching loneliness and nauseating proximity. Welcome aboard!

THIS BOOK IS INSANE!!
