Here are just some of the books we're talking about at Powell's.

  1. A Fighting Chance

    Whether you're a liberal or a conservative, every side needs a champion who can translate complicated ideas into simple language. But the left enjoys more than an extremely capable communicator. Elizabeth Warren's passion is infectious, her determination inspiring, and her integrity above reproach. And with her new memoir, a rallying-cry-for-the-middle-class, she'll only continue to stir things up.

  2. The Intern's Handbook

    Lightning fast with dark humor, this book will grab your attention and keep you up at night. Professional assassin John Lago has written The Intern's Handbook for novice assassins who join highly successful firms as innocuous interns so that they can get close to their targets. "You'll go to interesting places. You'll meet unique and stimulating people from all walks of life. And kill them."

  3. The Adventures of Beekle

    When, on the island of imaginary friends, Beekle gets tired of waiting to be imagined by a real child, he sets off to do the unimaginable — find her, himself. With sweeping illustrations, Beekle is a sweet tale of adventure and imagination.

  4. Thanks for the Feedback

    Another gem from the authors of Difficult Conversations, this great read is for professionals and anyone looking to improve their relationships through better communication. If you've ever wondered in frustration, Why did they say that?, then this is the book for you.

  5. Flash Boys

    Lewis yet again pens an investigative and insightful story of money and finance, proving once more his skill at capturing what defines our era.

    Recommended by Ted April 7, 2014

  6. Dreams of Gods and Monsters

    The brutally epic finish to this visceral trilogy shimmers with momentary beauties. Hosts of angels reveal themselves to Earth, as rebel chimaera band together with Misbegotten in a final stand against the war tearing their world apart. All the while, our swoony (but damaged!) protagonists struggle to reconcile their love, lives, and destinies.

  7. The Plover

    From the author of Mink River, a jaunty, modernist take on the seafaring yarn, complete with a grizzled boat captain, resident gull, and prose that sparkles and leaps like the ocean waves it travels.

  8. The Nethergrim

    An original and subtle tale by a debut author, this is the story of Katherine, Tom, and Edmund, three unlikely heroes who stand forth to battle an ancient evil threatening everyone's lives. Entertainingly told with many unique features, The Nethergrim reads like a classic.

  9. Living with a Wild God

    Ehrenreich's latest is a bit of a departure from her political and sociological work, but her voice is as engaging and passionate as ever. An intensely personal yet rigorously thoughtful examination of mystical experience, Living with a Wild God is a unique and fascinating look at the inexplicable.

  10. The Here and Now

    Prenna James has a secret. She's from the future, part of a group that traveled back in time to escape a deadly plague. When Prenna falls in love with Ethan, her carefully constructed life quickly unravels into a gripping adventure.

  11. The Empathy Exams

    Leslie Jamison is a marvel. The essays that make up this collection are wise, uncomfortable, beautiful, humane, and utterly absorbing. They demand an investigation of the reader's own heart. I can't think of another book I've recommended to so many people so fiercely. I'm already happy to declare it the best nonfiction book of 2014.

    Recommended by Jill Owens April 4, 2014

  12. Citizen Canine

    Citizen Canine is a very readable account of our fur-babies, a passionate ode to pets as well as a dispassionate historical view of animals in our human world. It's not just about dogs, but cats and all the other nonhumans we've invited into our homes.
