Lightning Rods by Helen DeWitt
I don’t know too much about this book other than what the cover tells me, that it’s the new book by the author whose debut novel was The Last Samurai, which eventually went on to be adapted into a film starring Tom Cruise. That, and the book’s gotten quite a bit of buzz this year. Is the buzz warranted? You’ll have to let us know. You can find the new novel reviewed at The New York Observer and at The Millions. You can also check out Helen DeWitt’s blog, as well as read an interview with her here, and purchase her second novel, Your Name Here, as a .pdf file on her website.
Before I Got To Sleep by S. J. Watson
American Sea Writing: A Literary Anthology, edited by Peter Neill
Wonderstruck: A Novel In Words And Pictures by Brian Selznick
The new novel by Selznick, author of The Invention Of Hugo Cabret, which is currently in theaters in a film adaptation directed by Martin Scorsese. This new book, an illustrated novel, is apparently a possible contender for both the Newbery and Caldecott awards, and has been highly requested by a few of our patrons of late. We’re glad to finally have it available, as you can clearly see in the look of excitement of my co-worker Judy’s face up above.

Roger Ebert gives Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol 3 1/2 stars. I’ve seen the movie myself and would agree, it’s definitely worth a viewing. It’s a very fun movie, but if you’re going to see it in the theater then do yourself a favor and see it right: in IMAX. Trust me, it’ll be worth it.
When looking at some of the links listed here, please don’t forget that: We have several of the Hercule Poirot movies on DVD, including the ones starring David Suchet, as well as Murder On The Orient Express which stars Albert Finney and Death On The Nile which stars Peter Ustinov.
