The final novel from one of the Northwest's most beloved writers, Ivan Doig's The Last Bus to Wisdom is the story of 11-year-old Donal Cameron and his travels across the country by Greyhound bus. Each of the cast of characters Donal meets during his journey have stories to tell and insights to offer. Doig does a superb job of bringing this bygone era alive for the reader.

Fortune Smiles: Stories
Fortune Smiles: Stories
by Adam Johnson
Staff Pick
These six substantial stories by the Pulitzer Prizeâ€"winning Adam Johnson range in topic from hurricane Katrina to North Korea; his convincing characters are trying to make the best of some very difficult circumstances. Wrenching, masterful, and occasionally grimly funny, Fortune Smiles is one of the strongest story collections of the year.

The Fall of Princes
The Fall of Princes
by Robert Goolrick
Staff Pick
Some books are meant to be sipped and savored, others consumed whole. The Fall of Princes should be ingested in a single marathon session like one of the cocaine- and champagne-induced benders it so vividly depicts. Goolrick perfectly captures the arrogance and hubris of New York in the 1980s. His characters wallow in the Gatsbyesque decadence before ultimately seeking redemption.
