CivilWarLand in Bad Decline: Stories and a Novella
CivilWarLand in Bad Decline: Stories and a Novella
by George Saunders
Staff Pick
Taking its title from its opening story, set dystopically enough in a Civil War historical reenactment park, George Saunders's first book still sweeps my legs out from under me. Twain and Vonnegut are heavyweights named as his predecessors, but Saunders... (read more)

Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade
Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade
by Patrick Dennis
Staff Pick
By the time they made the movie musical, the book had gone out of print. Which was a shame. The original novel, a true comic classic, really was the best of the lot. Not only are the comic descriptions hilarious, but when they made the many adaptations... (read more)

The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky, and Death
The Noble Hustle: Poker, Beef Jerky, and Death
by Colson Whitehead
Staff Pick
Allegedly, The Noble Hustle is about poker. Actually, it is a hilarious, insightful, and lovingly nihilistic look at creative anguish, the struggle of being alive, and the inevitable failure of caring too much about how things turn out. That said, it'll... (read more)

Fool
Fool
by Christopher Moore
Staff Pick
I giggled a lot while reading Fool, Moore's take on King Lear. It's bawdy, silly, and smart. A perfect read for book nerds with a sense of humor.... (read more)

I Love Dick
I Love Dick
by Chris Kraus
Staff Pick

Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary
Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk: A Modest Bestiary
by David Sedaris
Staff Pick
Sedaris diverges from his usual essays to give us a book of fables. Like all good fables and fairy tales, they're pretty gruesome and horrifying, and there's most always a moral to be found. These include a healthy dose of charm and wit, though. Ian... (read more)

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: The Classic Regency Romance -- Now with Ultraviolent Zombie Mayhem!
by Seth Grahame-Smith and Jane Austen
Staff Pick
In Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Seth Grahame-Smith has paired Austen’s sublime language with the visceral, flesh-eating menace of the "dreadfuls." England was never this lively. We get sword fights, romance, a zombie plague, and, as a bonus... (read more)

Backyard Ballistics
