It’s the summer of 1954 and the residents of Cottonwood, California are dying. Suspicion and gossip swirl around a strange six year old boy who never speaks, but seems to bring ruin to those around him, even his mother. When a stranger whips into town and Danny and his ten-year-old brother Sean go missing from the backseat of their father’s car, a search ensues in which everyone is a suspect—even their own parents—and the consequences of finding the two brothers may be worse than not finding them at all.

We have signed copies of Sweet Spot: An Ice Cream Binge Across America available, signed in-person by Amy Ettinger at our in-store event with her on July 17th, 2017.

For Amy Ettinger, ice cream is not just a delicious snack but a circumstance and a time of year--frozen forever in memory. As the youngest child and only girl, ice cream embodied unstructured summers, freedom from the tyranny of her classmates, and a comforting escape from her chaotic, demanding family. Now as an adult and journalist, her love of ice cream has led to a fascinating journey to understand ice cream's evolution and enduring power, complete with insight into the surprising history behind America's early obsession with ice cream and her experience in an immersive ice-cream boot camp to learn from the masters. From a visit to the one place in the United States that makes real frozen custard in a mammoth machine known as the Iron Lung, to the vicious competition among small ice-cream makers and the turf wars among ice-cream trucks, to extreme flavors like foie gras and oyster, Ettinger encounters larger-than-life characters and uncovers what's really behind America's favorite frozen treats.

"In her new stand-alone novel, Laurie R. King tackles a modern horror—a high school career day gone terribly wrong. Anyone who loves King’s deft writing and nuanced character building will be more than satisfied. King weaves the threads of her characters’ lives and secrets together into a taut psychological tale that is poignant and provocative and an excellent example of her range and skill."— Flannery, Bookshop Santa Cruz Staff

Hardcover

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.
