The Women
The Women
by T C Boyle

Mrs. Woolf and the Servants: An Intimate History of Domestic Life in Bloomsbury
by Alison Light

The Bronte Myth
The Bronte Myth
by Lucasta Miller
Staff Pick
Lucasta Miller's eminently sane "metabiography" of the famous sisters Brontë is a refreshingly original piece of literary detection, aptly stripping myth from known facts. Too often cast in a variety of stereotypical roles, these literary geniuses... (read more)

The Cement Garden
The Cement Garden
by Ian McEwan
Staff Pick
Long before Atonement, Ian McEwan was one sick, dirty little boy. And for that I am grateful. The Cement Garden is his most deeply macabre novel. Within the lives of four orphaned children, McEwan casts spells so dark and twisted, there is no room for... (read more)
