Come and check out these and some of the other new books and materials (or at least new to us) added to our library collection…
Gideon’s Corpse by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child
The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides
The newest novel by the acclaimed author who won the Pulitzer Prize for Middlesex. You can find reviews for this book at The New York Observer, The Huffington Post, and The New York Times. There’s also an interesting interview with the author at The Economist.
We also have an anthology of classic and contemporary short stories that was edited with Eugenides, entitled My Mistress’s Sparrow Is Dead: Great Love Stories, From Chekhov To Munro. It deals with love in its many, many forms and would make for very interesting reading as we approach Valentine’s Day.
