Daniel
"Mankell jumps across genres to give us this haunting and heartbreaking novel of an African boy ripped from his Kalahari desert homeland and taken to Sweden in the late 19th century. Only if Daniel can learn to walk on water can he realize his hope to get home. An amazingly original, meritorious novel." -- Deal Safrit, Literary Book Post, Salisbury, NC

Foreign Bodies
"I can't recall reading The Ambassadors in college, but familiarity with that novel is not necessary to enjoy this 'retelling' of the tale in contemporary form. The protagonist, Bea Nightingale, is an intriguing character, and the story is an engaging one, with emotional family entanglements handled brilliantly by a masterful storyteller." -- Betsey Detwiler, Buttonwood Books & Toys, Cohasset, MA

The Instructions
"The Instructions is a brilliant virtuoso literary performance that is wildly entertaining from beginning to end -- from page one to page 1,024! It is ambitious, provocative, touching, hilarious and sad, which leads to an exhilarating and extremely powerful reading experience." -- Ed Conklin, Chaucer's Books, Santa Barbara, CA

Visitation
"A spare, exquisite gem of a novel, Jenny Erpenbeck's Visitation stopped me cold. The story follows the life of one house on the banks of a Bradenburg lake, outside of Berlin, and the inhabitants who reside there over the course of one hundred years. A fierce and wildly intelligent look at how we live our lives, both in respite and in duress, which things have meaning, and what we need to call a place a home. Visitation is a biography of a place, a story of displacement and irreparable loss, and an intimate and deeply personal exploration of the private places we cultivate to house our souls. This book will change you." -- Rachel Meier, The Booksmith, San Francisco, CA

You Don't Look Like Anyone I Know
"This is an astonishing memoir by Sellers, who has prosopagnosia, commonly known as face blindness. Some may dismiss it as another memoir about a bad childhood, but it is much more than that. Even though both of Sellers' parents battled mental illness, the love they have for their daughter is strong, and shines through the pages of this book. A triumphant story!" -- Rhoda Wolff, Schuler Books & Music, Grand Rapids, MI

Travels in Siberia
"This may be my favorite travel book. Period. Ian Frazier is a magnificently gifted writer who makes every single word interesting and takes the reader with him across the landscape, through history, and into the present. He keeps the reader close by his side through all manner of experiences, and the reader's heart soars and stomach turns along with his own. Frazier has traveled to the end of the earth, and I am happy to feel that I have gone with him." -- Linda Ramsdell, The Galaxy Bookshop, Hardwick, VT

Must You Go?
"They met after a dinner party and carried on an affair even though they were both married to others. Madly in love for over three decades until the day Pinter died of cancer, theirs was a life focused on the theater, their respective children, and each other. They travelled the world, lived cushioned by luxury, and met and entertained everyone from royals to radicals. Charming, funny, sad, fascinating, and beautifully written, this tale will find you wishing for just such a relationship." -- Betsy Burton, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT

The Killing of Crazy Horse
"Thomas Powers has poured his heart and soul into this book, and the reader will do the same. It is a sad tale masterfully told as Powers weaves exhaustive research into the spellbinding story of Crazy Horse, the great Sioux warrior and leader, a little-discussed and often misunderstood player in American History. This book possesses the kind of immediacy only seen in the very best narrative nonfiction, and will become an important source for years to come." -- Sheryl Cotleur, Book Passage, Corte Madera, CA

Half Empty
"This newest collection of essays by the acerbic Rakoff is both canny and thought provoking. He challenges assumptions and is withering in his criticisms, but he also reveals his own foibles, personal sorrows, and afflictions. Enlightening, unforgettable, and heart wrenching." -- Tova Beiser, Brown University Bookstore, Providence, RI
