by Lynn Freed
First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page
Hardcover

We have signed copies of The Romance of Elsewhere available, signed on the title page by Lynn Freed.

"If Joan Didion and Fran Lebowitz had a literary love child, she would be Lynn Freed--or, at least, the resulting book would be Lynn Freed's essay collection, The Romance of Elsewhere . . . The collection of 20 previously-published essays spans decades and continents, and is in equal turns funny, wise, and sardonic; charting both Freed's evolution as a traveler and her evolution as a writer. Travelers and readers seeking an unusually un-romanticized take on wandering the world will love it." --Bustle

First Edition, First Printing, Signed Title Page
Hardcover

We have signed copies available of Righteous, signed by Joe Ide on the title page.

For ten years, something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights, boiling with anger and thoughts of revenge. Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. The search for the killer sent Isaiah plunging into despair and nearly destroyed his life. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again-or lose his mind. With even more action, suspense, and mind-bending mysteries than Isaiah's first adventures, Righteous is a rollicking, ingenious thrill ride.

Hardcover

We have signed copies of Going Into Town available, signed by Roz Chast on a tip-in sheet.

"Roz Chast is a master of the graphic memoir. Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasantpushed the very boundaries of the genre, showing the world that comics are so much more than “just comic books.” Her new volume promises both an insider and outsider view of Manhattan, a strange yet beautiful city. I can’t wait to crack this one open and soak up Chast’s newest love letter to New York City." - Ivy

Hardcover

We have signed copies of My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward available, signed on the title page by Mark Lukach.

A story of the fragility of the mind, and the tenacity of the human spirit, My Lovely Wife in the Psych Ward is, above all, a love story that raises profound questions: How do we care for the people we love? What and who do we live for?

by Byron Katie with Stephen Mitchell
First Edition, Signed in Person
Hardcover

We now have signed copies of A Mind at Home with Itself available, signed in-person by Byron Katie and Stephen Mitchell at our event with them on October 18th, 2017.

We live in difficult times, leaving far too many of us suffering from anxiety and depression, fear and anger. In her new and most anticipated work since Loving What Is, beloved spiritual teacher Byron Katie provides a much-needed beacon of light, and a source of hope and joy.

In A Mind at Home with Itself, Byron Katie illuminates one of the most profound ancient Buddhist texts, The Diamond Sutra (newly translated in these pages by Stephen Mitchell) to reveal the nature of the mind and to liberate us from painful thoughts, using her revolutionary system of self-inquiry called "The Work." Byron Katie doesn't merely describe the awakened mind; she empowers us to see it and feel it in action. At once startlingly fresh and powerfully enlightening, A Mind at Home with Itself offers us a transformative new perspective on life and death.

by Joe Hill
First Edition, Tip-In, Specially Bound
Hardcover

We have signed copies of Strange Weather available, signed by Joe Hill on a specially-bound tip-in.

“Joe Hill delivers with Strange Weather, a collection of four novellas. Hill has developed a writing style akin to an oil slick - eerie sentences that leave behind something that shines unclean. There's nothing clean about Strange Weather; each tale is a horrific glimpse just beyond normalcy. Horror can often be best delivered as an understatement, luring the reader into a world that seems just reasonable enough. When Hill reveals his tricks (whether a magical camera or a cloud disguised as a UFO), they loom uncomfortably dark on the horizon. Fans of H.P. Lovecraft won't be disappointed with this collection.” — Atticus Solomon (M), Literati Bookstore, Ann Arbor, MI

by Robin Sloan
First Edition, First Printing, Signed in Person
Hardcover

We now have signed copies of Sourdough available, signed in-person by Robin Sloan at our event with him on September 19th, 2017.

Lois Clary is a software engineer at General Dexterity, a San Francisco robotics company with world-changing ambitions. She codes all day and collapses at night, her human contact limited to the two brothers who run the neighborhood hole-in-the-wall from which she orders dinner every evening. Then, disaster Visa issues. The brothers close up shop, and fast. But they have one last delivery for Lois: their culture, the sourdough starter used to bake their bread. She must keep it alive, they tell her--feed it daily, play it music, and learn to bake with it.

Leavened by the same infectious intelligence that made Robin Sloan's Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore such a sensation, while taking on even more satisfying challenges, Sourdough marks the triumphant return of a unique and beloved young writer.

by Louise Erdrich
First Edition, Tip-In, Specially Bound
Hardcover

We now have signed copies of Future Home of the Living God available, signed by Louise Erdrich on a tip-in sheet specially bound by the publisher.

"Having binge-watched the television adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, coupled with current politics, I swore off dystopian stories for the time being just so I could catch my breath. Until, of course, I caught word that my favorite author’s new title was just that. Future Home of the Living God tells the story of one woman, Cedar, who at four months pregnant, is suddenly thrown into a fight for survival when the state of genetic evolution starts to reverse itself. Plants and animals are reproducing species that have long been extinct and there are whispers that the children being born aren’t surviving or if they are, something is very wrong with them. The government responds by gathering genetic data and institutionalizing pregnant women. As Cedar’s pregnancy progresses, we watch the journey that she must endure to protect her unborn child. While this genre is a departure for Erdrich, Future Home of the Living God explores themes familiar to her other books, examining self-identity, loyalty, and the importance of redemption within family. This is a taut and intense whirlwind of a read—whew." - S.M.C.

"Do you like lady assassins? This follow-up to Nevernight will hit all the right spots. Mia and her shadow cat that's not a cat are back and more kickass than before. The stakes are higher, the assassinations sneakier, and the alliances more duplicitous." - Karena
