Warming Winter Reads - June 2016

Imprints Booksellers - Monday, June 20, 2016

 


Is there a better remedy against the winter months than hot tea and good books? C.S. Lewis thought not:

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough
or a book long enough to suit me.”

With rain drumming against the windows and the heat set to high, we've put together a selection of reading suggestions to spark your curiosity and ignite your imagination. New offerings from Lionel Shriver, Ellen Van Neerven, Lindy West, Edward O. Wilson and more promise something for everyone at Imprints Booksellers but, sadly, tea is not included. Best to brew your own, we think. In the mean time, happy winter reading!

edited by Jessica Strand and Andrea Aguilar, Paperback, $22.99

Based on a series of talks pairing writers of note at NYC’s beloved bookstore, Upstairs at the Strand offers candid and behind-the-scenes accounts of the ways leading writers work, think, and live. The book features such celebrated novelists, playwrights, and poets as Martin Amis, Paul Auster, Renata Adler, Patti Smith, and Mark Strand, as well as contemporary stars such as Alison Bechdel, Junot Díaz, and Téa Obreht.



The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction

by Neil Gaiman, Paperback, $29.99

The View from the Cheap Seats draws together, for the first time ever, a myriad of non-fiction writing by international phenomenon and Sunday Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman. From Make Good Art, the speech he gave at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia that went viral, to pieces on artists and legends including Terry Pratchett, Lou Reed and Ray Bradbury, the collection offers a glimpse into the head and heart of one of the most acclaimed writers of our time.



The Gustav Sonata

by Rose Tremain, Paperback, $29.99

Fierce, astringent, profoundly tender – and spanning the twentieth century – Rose Tremain's beautifully orchestrated novel tells  the story of Gustav Perle who grows up in a small town in Switzerland, where the horrors of the Second World War seem like far-off concerns. Exploring themes of betrayal and the struggle for happiness, The Gustav Sonata is a testament to the passionate love of a childhood friendship as it is tested over a lifetime.



The American People: Volume 1 - Search for My Heart

by Larry Kramer, Paperback, $36.99

Forty years in the making, The American People sets forth Larry Kramer's reimagined vision of his homeland's history. This is the story of one nation under a plague, contaminated by greed, hate, and disease and host to transcendent acts of courage and kindness. Volume One of this remarkable opus is a work of ribald satire, prophetic outrage, and dazzling imagination. It is an encyclopedic indictment, written with outrageous love and a sharp eye for the pitfalls of contemporary American culture.



Happy People Read and Drink Coffee

by Agnes Martin-Lugand, Paperback, $27.99

Diane has a charmed life as a wife, a mother and the owner of a literary café in Paris until a tragic accident claims the lives of her husband and daughter. Trapped and haunted by her memories, Diane withdraws from friends and family, unable and unwilling to move forward. But, one year on, Diane shocks her loved ones by leaving Paris to move to a small town on the Irish coast to rebuild her life alone. At once heartbreaking and uplifting, Happy People Read and Drink Coffee is the inspirational story of a woman finding new meaning in the wake of devastating loss.

Imprints Booksellers - Friday, April 08, 2016

From a tangled web of conspiracy and intrigue in Tim Baker's Fever City to a brand new Bernie Gunther mystery with cameo by W. Somerset Maugham, these are the most enthralling new crime books for the month of April. 

 

Fire Damage by Kate Medina, Paperback, $29.99rrp

But both men soon become ensnared by a sinister cabal that spreads from the White House all the way to Dealey Plaza. Decades later in Dallas, Alston's son stumbles across evidence from JFK conspiracy buffs that just might link his father to the shot heard round the world.


The Trap by Melanie Raabe, Paperback, $29.99rrp

Twelve years ago, Linda's sister Anna was murdered. Her killer was never caught, but Linda saw him. Now, all these years later, she's just seen him again on TV. He's become a well-known journalist, and Linda–a famous novelist and infamous recluse–knows no one will believe her if she accuses him. She does the only thing she can think of: she sets a trap, writing a thriller called Blood Sisters about the unsolved murder of a young woman. When Blood Sisters is published, Linda agrees to give just one media interview. At home. To the one person who knows more about the case than she does...

His attempts to keep his nose clean go horribly awry when a wartime acquaintance sucks him into a blackmail plot involving one of the most famous British writers of the 20th century, W. Somerset Maugham, and the Cambridge Spies and a mass murderer who, in 1945, was responsible for the deaths of thousands, among them a woman Bernie loved.



The Travelers by Chris Pavone, Paperback, $29.99rrp


Will Rhodes is an award-winning correspondent for The Travelers, on assignment at a luxury Argentinian resort, but his life is about to be turned upside down when a new flirtation turns into something far more dangerous. Turns out he's been targeted, he just doesn't know why. He doesn't know what these people truly want and how far into his life they will reach, to his friends and his colleagues, to his boss and his wife. He doesn't know that they will stop at nothing in their pursuit, and he doesn't know about the secrets he has already been keeping...
