by Dennis Lehane
First Edition, First Printing, Specially Bound

We now have signed copies of Since We Fell available! 

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel's marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.

We have signed copies of The Tincture of Time available, signed in-person by Elizabeth L. Silver at our in-store event with her on May 3rd

Growing up as the daughter of a dedicated surgeon, Elizabeth L. Silver felt an unquestioned faith in medicine. When her six-week-old daughter, Abby, was rushed to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with sudden seizures, and scans revealed a serious brain bleed, her relationship to medicine began to change.

The Tincture of Time: A Memoir of (Medical) Uncertainty is Silver’s gorgeous and haunting chronicle of Abby’s first year. It’s a year of unending tests, doctors’ opinions, sleepless nights, promising signs and steps backward, and above all, uncertainty: The mysterious circumstances of Abby’s hospitalization attract dozens of specialists, none of whom can offer a conclusive answer about what went wrong or what the future holds. As Silver begins to think about what it means to cope with uncertainty as a patient and parent and seeks peace in the reality that Abby’s injury may never be fully understood, she looks beyond her own story for comfort. She probes literature, religion, and the history of medicine, and reports the stories of doctors, patients, and fellow caretakers. The result is a blend of personal narrative and cultural analysis, at once a poignant snapshot of a parent’s struggle and a wise examination of the boundaries of medicine. Happily, today Abby is a joyous, sweet, and very active toddler.

We have signed copies of Small Homes: The Right Size available, signed in-person by Lloyd Kahn at our in-store event with him on April 28th.

From the publishers of a popular series of building books comes Small Homes, which is highly relevant for these times -- getting smaller, rather than larger. Some 75 builders share their knowledge of building and design, with artistic, practical, and/or economical homes in the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, France, Germany, Spain, New Zealand, and Lithuania.

Compared to the average American home, small homes are less expensive, use less resources, are more efficient to heat and cool, and cheaper to maintain and repair. Compared to tiny homes, they offer a lot more space and breathing room.

They are desirable for people who want to avoid a bank mortgage or high rents, yet need more room than a tiny house affords.

Here are 65 small homes.


by Leslie Karst
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person

Sally Solari is busy juggling working at her family's Italian restaurant, Solari's, and helping Javier plan the autumn menu for the restaurant she inherited, Gauguin. Complicating her hectic schedule, Sally joins her ex-boyfriend Eric's chorus, performing a newly discovered version of her favorite composition: the Mozart "Requiem." But at the first rehearsal, a soprano, Gayle, confides in Sally that her tenor boyfriend died falling from his roof--and she doesn't think it was an accident. 

Santa Cruz author Leslie Karst presents her second tasty and tantalizing Sally Solari mystery, A Measure of Murder.

We now have signed editions of The Dinner Party available! 

These eleven stories by Joshua Ferris, many of which were first published in The New Yorker, are at once thrilling, strange, and comic. The modern tribulations of marriage, ambition, and the fear of missing out as the temptations flow like wine and the minutes of life tick down are explored with the characteristic wit and insight that have made Ferris one of our most critically acclaimed novelists.

We now have signed editions of Beartown available! 

Fredrik Backman is back! Those of us who fell in love with his unforgettable characters in Man Called Ove won’t be disappointed in his latest, Beartown. Taking place in one small-town community obsessed and reliant on their homegrown hockey team, he once again weaves his magic in creating a true sense of a place and of people.  How do we become blind to others suffering and what ultimately bind us together?  A powerful, relevant, page-turning book. I loved it!   Ps: If you loved the TV series, Friday Night Lights, this book will make you so, so happy.

We now have signed editions of The Twelve Lives of Samuel Hawley available!

This is too strange and wonderful for a brief review, and still include all the reasons you’ll want it. Like love, guns, and constellations. Like conflicts with murderers, thieves, fishermen, principals, and environmentalists. Like love stories between lovers, and a girl and her father. Like past stories filled with clocks and women and bullets. Like growing forward, and growing up. A modern fairy tale you’ll want to read while on an adventure—or dreaming of one.
