Co-owner Scott let's down his hair and throws fastballs.

The Good Lord Bird

James McBride

$16.00 $14.72

This is a crackling, cantankerous story; an old-timey tale that you will love, and it's witty as hell.

Freeman's: California

$16.00 $14.72

This compendium has it all topically on everyone's favorite state, and some of the best writers around. Enjoy!

The Cactus League

Emily Nemens

$27.00 $24.30

As a Nationals fan, this extended Championship run is pretty fun! As a baseball fan, this extended break isn't very fun. Find some great diamond-based feelings with this Art of Fielding-esque story of an Arizona spring training for the ages. A good comfort read.

The Last Tourist

Olen Steinhauer

$27.99 $25.19

The latest thriller from one of my favorite authors, this book is the last of the 4 Dept. of Tourism books, and ITS A DOOZY. Follow Mile Weaver for what is probably his last flight!

Death in Her Hands

Ottessa Moshfegh

$27.00 $24.30

So we all adore Otessa Moshfegh right? Yep? Good. Read this one with a nice port and the lights off; it'll sneak up on you.

Why We Can't Sleep: Women's New Midlife Crisis

Ada Calhoun

$26.00 $23.40

The full throated case for loving, supporting, and listening to all of the women. As told by a witty AF Gen-Xer. Loved it.

Writers & Lovers

Lily King

$27.00 $24.30

Did we need another book about failing twenty-something aspirational writers? No, but this is the best of the bunch. I can't name my second place finisher now. This book is adored by Ron Charles of the Washington Post, who said all of this stuff last month. Sorry for being so late to the party.


Chelsea Bieker

$26.00 $23.40

It's got a bit of Educated, and a monster truck rally of culty stuff that hides (unfairly) an honest look and motherhood from all angles. I read this on the recommendation of another bookseller, and it is fully fantastic.

That Time of Year

Marie Ndiaye

$19.95 $18.35

This novella is a goofy little French cuss, and I really liked it. Support our best indie publishers with this one; pairs well with our featured May author, Adeline Dieudonne's debut Real Life.
