Gilead
Gilead
by Marilynne Robinson
Staff Pick
This is one of the few books I have read that has made me actively slow down my reading pace. Every sentence, every word feels purely distilled into its most emotionally resonant core. Robinson's prose conjures up that curious feeling you get sometimes... (read more)

Mink River

Staff Pick
I haven't enjoyed a book this much in so long! Set in a tiny coastal Oregon town, this story is populated with characters who seem to leap off the page and speak their lines into your ear. They are that real. Brian Doyle breaks all the so-called "rules... (read more)

What We Talk about When We Talk about Love: Stories
What We Talk about When We Talk about Love: Stories
by Raymond Carver
Publisher Comments
In his second collection of stories, as in his first, Carver's characters are peripheral people — people without education, insight or prospects, people too unimaginative to even give up. Carver celebrates these men and women.... (read more)

Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon
Fugitives and Refugees: A Walk in Portland, Oregon
by Chuck Palahniuk
Staff Pick
Not your typical hotel-gift-shop guidebook, Fugitives and Refugees makes no pretense at objectivity. This is a decidedly idiosyncratic and personal book. Palahniuk's Portland is eccentric, dysfunctional, and perverse. If you're new to Palahniuk's work... (read more)

Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she's a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she's a disgrace; to design mavens, she's a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best... (read more)
