Seek: Reports from the Edges of America and Beyond
Seek: Reports from the Edges of America and Beyond
by Denis Johnson

The Dogs of Babel
The Dogs of Babel
by Carolyn Parkhurst
Staff Pick
Despite a few annoying detours — the story's romance is actually kindled in Disneyland — Parkhurst's story moves both mind and heart. What else does a novel need? If your answer is "a soulful Rhodesian Ridgeback named Lorelei," then this is the book... (read more)
