Vile Bodies
Vile Bodies
by Evelyn Waugh
Staff Pick
The great thing about Evelyn Waugh is that the humor of his novels transcends their era. You don't have to know anything about English society of the 1920s to be entertained by Vile Bodies because Waugh's style relies on fundamentally silly characters... (read more)

A Dance to the Music of Time: First Movement (Dance to the Music of Time)
A Dance to the Music of Time: First Movement (Dance to the Music of Time)
by Anthony Powell
Staff Pick
I started Anthony Powell's 12-novel cycle, A Dance to the Music of Time, with hopes of finishing it within a year. Four months later, I was done. While it can be a bit dry, Powell's writing is never dull. His descriptions put the reader directly in the... (read more)

Stories (Vintage Classics)
Stories (Vintage Classics)
by Katherine Mansfield
Staff Pick
Katherine Mansfield lived a tragic life, dying young of tuberculosis. However, in her short life, she proved herself a master of the short story, likened by many to a 20th century Chekhov. She's also the only writer who Virginia Woolf ever admitted being... (read more)

The Sluts
The Sluts
by Dennis Cooper
Staff Pick
Dennis Cooper's The Sluts is addictive in a very disturbing way; it creates as much self-reflection as it does analysis of the characters and their fantasies. The sex described is brutal and graphic and unreal and maybe none of it ever happens and maybe... (read more)

Complete Stories
Complete Stories
by Dorothy Parker
Staff Pick
There will never be another author like Dorothy Parker. She had a style of writing all her own, and this book is a perfect introduction to her work. Complete Stories does a great job of showing Parker at her best — it shows her range and her depth,... (read more)

Glamorama (Vintage Contemporaries)
Glamorama (Vintage Contemporaries)
by Bret Easton Ellis
Staff Pick
Everything that Bret Easton Ellis accomplished with American Psycho has been refined and redesigned in his epic Glamorama. Graphic sex, designer drugs, rock 'n' roll allusions, splatterpunk violence, and characters as deep as 8"x10" glossies —... (read more)

Hotel De Dream (08 Edition)

Staff Pick
Edmund White is one of American literature's best kept secrets, and Hotel de Dream is his finest novel in nearly a decade. Give this one a chance; I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. If you've never read any of White's novels, this is a fantastic... (read more)

Just an Ordinary Day
Just an Ordinary Day
by Shirley Jackson
Staff Pick
Aside from her infamous story "The Lottery," Shirley Jackson's genius with the short story form is often overlooked. The stories in Just an Ordinary Day represent the great diversity of her work, from her incredibly dry, sarcastic humor to her... (read more)
