The Sunlit Night
The Sunlit Night
by Rebecca Dinerstein
Staff Pick
Delightfully quirky and charming, the tale of how Frances and Yasha come to meet on a tiny Norwegian island is both winsome and slightly melancholic. From the reaches of the far north to a Russian bakery in Brighton Beach, Dinerstein transports us to her slightly wacky world.

Our Souls at Night
Our Souls at Night
by Kent Haruf
Staff Pick
What a blessing it is for Kent Haruf fans to have one last story to savor. In his resonantly lean style, he sheds light on a relationship between two elderly people living alone yet seeking the warmth of companionship in conversation during nights spent in bed together. Here is the essence: lives enhanced by the simple gesture of reaching out to each other.
