3 Recent Hot Ones!

Hungry for words? In need of new literary nourishment? Well, the Librairie D&Q kitchen is open (and that concludes my use of lame metaphors for the day).

The Vanishers is the newest novel from The Believer magazine co-founder Heidi Julavits. It's an imaginative meditation on female rivalry filtered through a paranormal lens.

Spiotta's last book, 2006's Eat the Document was described by the New York Times as "a book that possesses the staccato ferocity of a Joan Didion essay". This, her third book, was named a best book of 2011 by The Washington Post, The Boston Globe, The Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, Entertainment Weekly and Salon.

Trying to describe Gods Without Men, Douglas Coupland -in his NYT review of the book- proposes a new literary genre he calls 'Translit" (Cunningham's The Hours and Mitchell's Cloud Atlas are two examples he selects to illustrate) which, in a nutshell, means that GWN features sub-stories, screws with time and geography and is a wild, post-modern read!

And, as always, new hardcover fiction is 20% off!
