Maggie Nelson$15.00 $13.80
A genre-bending (and perfectly-titled) memoir of intimacy and gender that deserves all the awards. I read this in an afternoon at Radio Coffee and felt changed by the end.
Emily St John Mandel$16.95 $15.59
Post-apocalyptic novel set 20 years after a pandemic, following a tiny Shakespearean troupe as they cross the country and perform for what small colonies remain. Either the best or worst thing to read right now, depending on your needs.
Is it worth mourning a life that’s been wasted? What does it mean to waste a life? Funny, snarky, and totally original.
Olga Broumas$20.00 $18.00
The collected works of poet Olga Broumas, from Beginning with O (1975) to Sappho's Gymnasium (1999).
Sonya Renee Taylor$18.95 $17.43
Essential reading for anyone who grew up in a patriarchal, white supremacist, and ableist beauty industrial complex. So… basically everyone. I recommend this book to everyone.
Carmen Maria Machado$26.00 $23.40
There’s a reason everyone keeps talking about this wrenching, inventive, beautiful examination of a memoir. Read it if you haven’t already. Or read it again.
Charles Yu$15.95 $14.67
Funny, thoughtful, and totally meta novel about time travel, loneliness, and a son’s search for his dad.
Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz$15.00
Poet moves from NYC to Austin to write a nonfiction book. Then she ends up writing this book, too. Funny, self-aware, and smart, Aptowicz came out of the slam scene and you feel it here.
Zadie Smith$17.00 $15.64
The debut novel that made Zadie Smith famous, and for good reason. 10/10, would recommend for readers and writers alike.
Ada Limón$22.00 $19.80
Her latest collection, which won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry in 2018 and totally deserves it.
Madeline Miller$16.98 $15.62
If you like mythology — or think you might — read this.
Alex Mar$17.00 $15.64
A study of paganism in the US turns memoir when Mar initiates the process to join two different practices of magic.
Leni Zumas$16.99 $15.63
The Handmaid’s Tale for the 2010s swell of anti-choice laws.
Lesley Nneka Arimah$16.00 $14.72
I heard of Arimah's story collection from LeVar Burton’s podcast and hoo boy, does this book live up to it.
Laurie Halse Anderson$10.99 $10.11
