Library: Recent Acquisitions



Spring 2017 Acquisitions


Spring 2017 is the season of the short story. The past few weeks have seen the release of new collections from masters of the form Richard Bausch and Richard Russo, as well as a new selection of stories, poems, and non-fiction by Grace Paley. Other books of stories we’ve recently added to the library include new collections by Joshua Ferris, Edie Meidav and Syrian writer Osama Alomar, whose short-short fictions have been hailed by Lydia Davis. Looking for something longer and more suspenseful? We have the latest novels by Paula Hawkins, Donna Leon, and Greg Iles, plus Howard Norman’s foray into noir, My Darling Detective. Longer still are major new biographies of William Faulkner, Robert Lowell, and Angela Carter. Our new non-fiction titles also feature family memoirs by beloved novelists Richard Ford and Dani Shapiro. Short or long, you’re sure to find something rewarding in this list.
