We’ve got some really awesome books on sale this week: black comedy, Blake Butler, and an ebook of a fan favorite!
Nothing: A Portrait of Insomnia by Blake Butler
Another glimpse inside the dark, twisted mind of Blake Butler, author of There Is No Year—this time in the form of a memoir about his battle with insomnia. Also, the cover glows in the dark!
Practical Jean: A Novel by Trevor Cole
Practical Jean is the story of a woman who kills all of her friends. But it’s funny! If you liked Bad Marie, you’ll like this one—and Bad Marie author Marcy Dermansky did too! (“PRACTICAL JEAN practically blew my mind. Trevor Cole’s twisted novel about Jean Vale Horemash, a friend so devoted she will commit murder, is not only deliciously funny – it is also surprisingly, heartbreakingly poignant.”)
Eels: An Exploration, from New Zealand to the Sargasso, of the World’s Most Mysterious Fish by James Prosek
Over the weekend, I was at the house of a friend who has this book on his shelf. Another person there asked, “wait, is that book actually about eels?” Yes, yes it is, and it’s fascinating.
Hood: A Novel by Emma Donoghue
Dying for more Emma Donoghue after you’ve read Room? We have the cure with this novel, now back in print from us. It has one of my most favorite covers in a while.
On Hitler’s Mountain: Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood by Irmgard A. Hunt
This book is a great backlist book for us, and now it’s available as an ebook! Maybe it’s finally time for me to find out what I’m missing . . .
Do any of these strike your fancy?
