The Garden

The Garden

Clare Beams

$28.00

Editor’s Pick: This gothic tale follows Irene Willard, a woman who has suffered five previous miscarriages and decides to join a mysterious program that should help make sure her most recent pregnancy ends in a healthy baby. That's the plan, anyway. The Garden, which has drawn many comparisons to the work of Shirley Jackson, haunted me with its palpable eeriness—I did not want to put it down.

Jen Silverman

$29.00 $26.97

"Jen Silverman's remarkable new book is a thrilling journey through two generations of protest--the riotous streets of modern-day Paris, and the campus sit-ins of the Vietnam era--brilliantly weaving together the stories of two people separated by decades but confronting the same question: What happens when affairs of the heart collide with affairs of the state? This is an exhilarating novel of star-crossed romances and radical politics, with writing so evocative I swear I could smell the tear gas." —Nathan Hill, author of Wellness

Anne Lamott

$22.00 $20.46

"Lamott brings her signature wit and warmth to these effervescent meditations on matters of the heart. . . . A topic that might feel trite in the hands of a lesser writer takes on fresh meaning in Lamott's, thanks to her ability to distill complex truths with a deceptive lightness. This rings true." —Publishers Weekly (starred review)
