Bookstore Picks

Simply Put

May 13, 2023

One-word titles always catch my eye and ear, and this week four of the novels qualify. For two of them, we have signed copies while they last. This week we look at an emotionally powerful novel of the Holocaust; three novels where the protagonists are not quite who they purport to be or are pretending to be someone else; and a clever twist on the menage à trois.

Also, congratulations to the Pulitzer Prize-winning novels: Barbara Kingsolver’s Demon Copperhead, which we had the pleasure of celebrating at our event last fall; Hernan Diaz’s Trust; and the runner up, Vauhini Vara’s The Immortal King Rao, which was also shortlisted for our own First Novel Prize!

Happy reading,
Melanie Fleishman
