by Chloe Benjamin

We now have signed copies available of The Immortalists, signed by Chloe Benjamin on a tip-in page.

"This is a touching, magical story that follows an eclectic group of siblings over five decades following one defining event: a fortune-teller predicts when each will die. The path each sibling takes in reaction to the revelation is as unique as their voice in their dedicated chapters. It approaches mortality -- and immortality -- in a powerful way, and these four siblings will stay with you long after you close the book." - Kelly, Bookshop staff


by Esther Perel
First Edition, Signed Title Page

We now have signed copies available of The State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity, signed by Esther Perel at her talk at 1440 Multiversity on May 26th, 2018.

Iconic couples’ therapist and bestselling author of Mating in Captivity Esther Perel returns with a provocative look at relationships through the lens of infidelity.

An affair: it can rob a couple of their relationship, their happiness, their very identity. And yet, this extremely common human experience is so poorly understood. What are we to make of this time-honored taboo—universally forbidden yet universally practiced? Why do people cheat—even those in happy marriages? Why does an affair hurt so much? When we say infidelity, what exactly do we mean? Do our romantic expectations of marriage set us up for betrayal? Is there such a thing as an affair-proof marriage? Is it possible to love more than one person at once? Can an affair ever help a marriage? Perel weaves real-life case stories with incisive psychological and cultural analysis in this fast-paced and compelling book.


by Jonathan White
Paperback, Signed Title Page

We now have signed copies available of Talking on the Water, signed in person by Jonathan White at our in-store event with him on June 25th, 2018.

During the 1980s and 90s, the Resource Institute, headed by Jonathan White, held a series of "floating seminars" aboard a sixty-five-foot schooner featuring leading thinkers and writers from an array of disciplines. Over ten years, White conducted interviews, gathered in this collection, with the writers, scientists, and environmentalists who gathered on board to explore our relationship to the wild.

White describes the conversations as the roots of an integrated community: "While at first these roots may not appear to be linked, a closer look reveals that they are sustained in common ground."

By identifying the common link between these conversations, Talking on the Water takes us on a journey in search of a deeper understanding of ourselves and the environment.

We now have signed copies of Noir available, signed on a specially-bound tip-in page by Christopher Moore.

The absurdly outrageous, sarcastically satiric, and always entertaining New York Timesbestselling author Christopher Moore returns in finest madcap form with this zany noir set on the mean streets of post-World War II San Francisco, and featuring a diverse cast of characters, including a hapless bartender; his Chinese sidekick; a doll with sharp angles and dangerous curves; a tight-lipped Air Force general; a wisecracking waif; Petey, a black mamba; and many more.

by Michael Chabon

We now have signed paperback copies available of The Yiddish Policemen's Union, signed by Michael Chabon at our in-store event with him on May 17th, 2018.

"I love noir, but I especially love neo-noir set in an alternate Alaska established as the official Jewish state after WWII. Murder, shamanism, romance, chess, intrigue, snow and whole lot of Yiddish permeate this amazing novel. The ideas are so startlingly fresh and sharp that you read this novel knowing you’ve never read anything like it before. Chabon outdoes even his Pulitzer Prize-winning Kavalier & Clay with this work." - ZGR, Bookshop Staff

by Meg Wolitzer

Charming and wise, knowing and witty, Meg Wolitzer delivers a novel about power and influence, ego and loyalty, womanhood and ambition. At its heart, The Female Persuasion is about the flame we all believe is flickering inside of us, waiting to be seen and fanned by the right person at the right time.
