New Releases!

Come by the store and check out these new releases, fresh off the presses (well, for the most part):

Freedom by Jonathan Franzen- His first novel since The Corrections, Franzen tackles the subtle complexities of the mid-western family again, while dealing with the overarching theme of freedom in our modern lives.

C by Tom McCarthy- Short-listed for the Man Booker Prize this year, McCarthy's newest novel chronicles the life of Serge in the early 1900s. Radio gadgets,WWI, Egyptian espionage, love affairs in ancient tombs. And fiction pushes on.

Juliet by Anne Fortier- A reinvention a Shakespeare classic, we follow Julie, who discovers upon her Aunt's death, that she is really related to the real life family upon which Romeo & Juliet was based. And the feud is alive and well.

The Wave by Susan Casey
- Everything you've ever wanted to know about the giant, rogue waves of the ocean...and the people who dare to ride them.

Ape House by Sara Gruen- From the author of Water for Elephants comes this intriguing tale of apes, language, and what exactly it means to be human.

The Thousand by Kevin Guifoile- A conspiracy laced historical thriller that puts The Da Vinci Code to shame. To shame I say!
