Real Life

Brandon Taylor

$16.00 $14.72

“There will always be good white people who love him and want the best for him but who are more afraid of other white people than of letting him down. It is easier for them to let it happen and to triage the wound later than to introduce an element of the unknown into the situation. No matter how good they are, no matter how loving, they will always be complicit, a danger, a wound waiting to happen.” ― Brandon Taylor, Real Life

The House of Whispers

Laura Purcell

$17.00 $15.64

“Anger has forever been a failing of mine. When it surges, it sings in my veins like a dram of gin. Any action seems possible, reasonable. It is only afterwards, when the fire fades, that I see the dark soot-stain of what I have done.” ― Laura Purcell, The House of Whispers

Marilou Is Everywhere

Sarah Elaine Smith

$17.00 $15.64

“These were people where the middle part of them had been rotted and eaten by something that never saw the daylight. Whatever was in them stayed hidden and got muscles. And once it had muscles, it did all the talking.” ― Sarah Elaine Smith, Marilou is Everywhere

Your House Will Pay

Steph Cha

$21.99 $20.23

The Elementals

Michael McDowell

$19.19

“To them all, Beldame represented the fair and possible reward for distress, misfortune, and labor in this world—it was to them a heaven on earth, and resembled the other, preached-of heaven in that it was bright, remote, timeless, and empty.” ― Michael McDowell, The Elementals

Free Lunch

Rex Ogle

$16.95 $15.59

“I don't know why, but I don't trust the word free anymore. Lunch here is supposed to be free, but it feels like it costs me a lot.” ― Rex Ogle, Free Lunch

The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires

Grady Hendrix

$22.99 $21.15

“I am not sure what the appropriate gesture is to make toward the family of the woman who bit off your ear, but if you felt absolutely compelled, I certainly wouldn’t take food.” ― Grady Hendrix, The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires

We Have Always Lived in the Castle: (penguin Orange Collection)

Shirley Jackson

$18.00 $16.56

Bunny

Mona Awad

$17.00 $15.64

“I've never really not written, never not had another world of my own making to escape to, never known how to be in this world without most of my soul dreaming up and living in another.” ― Mona Awad, Bunny

Pet

Akwaeke Emezi

$17.99 $16.55

Eileen

Ottessa Moshfegh

$16.00 $14.72

“Those people with perfect houses are simply obsessed with death. A house that is so well maintained, furnished with good-looking furniture of high quality, decorated tastefully, everything in its place, becomes a living tomb. People truly engaged in life have messy houses.” ― Ottessa Moshfegh, Eileen

Normal People

Sally Rooney

$17.00 $15.64

“She believes Marianne lacks ‘warmth’, by which she means the ability to beg for love from people who hate her.” ― Sally Rooney, Normal People

When No One Is Watching: A Thriller

Alyssa Cole

$16.99 $15.63

Dig

A. S. King

$17.99 $16.55

“It’s not just a passing comment or a racist quip in the hallway. My whole house is wallpapered with hate. My dinner is made with hate. My Christmas gifts are bought with hate. I started doing my own wash when I was ten just so my clothes can feel clean when everything else feels dirty.” ― A.S. King, Dig

The Glass Hotel

Emily St John Mandel

$26.95 $24.79

The New Me

Halle Butler

$16.00 $14.72

“You can’t ask someone to help you without letting them know you’re different than advertised, that you’ve been thinking and feeling strange things this whole time. That you’re uglier, weaker, more annoying, more basic, less interesting than promised. Without letting on that your feelings are easily hurt, and that you are boring, just like everyone else.” ― Halle Butler, The New Me

Luster

Raven Leilani

$26.00 $23.92

“And then I miscalculated. Too much anger shared too soon. Too much can you believe these white people. Too much fuck the police. We both graduated from the school of Twice as Good for Half as Much, but I’m sure she still finds this an acceptable price of admission. She still rearranges herself, waiting to be chosen. And she will be. Because it is an art—to be black and dogged and inoffensive. She is all these things and she is embarrassed that I am not.” ― Raven Leilani, Luster

In the Dream House: A Memoir

Carmen Maria Machado

$16.00 $14.72

“The trouble with letting people see you at your worst isn’t that they’ll remember; it’s that you’ll remember.” ― Carmen Maria Machado, In the Dream House

I'm Thinking of Ending Things

Iain Reid

$15.99 $14.71

“For years, my life has been flat. I’m not sure how else to describe it. I’ve never admitted it before. I’m not depressed, I don’t think. That’s not what I’m saying. Just flat, listless. So much has felt accidental, unnecessary, arbitrary. It’s been lacking a dimension. Something seems to be missing.” ― Iain Reid, I'm Thinking of Ending Things

The Turn of the Screw

Henry James

$8.00 $7.36

“Make (the reader) think the evil, make him think it for himself, and you are released from weak specifications. My values are positively all blanks, save so far as an excited horror, a promoted pity, a created expertness... proceed to read into them more or less fantastic figures.” ― Henry James, The Turn of the Screw
