A beautiful, haunting story set in New York in 1911. The city and its history are lovingly woven into the lives of Eddie, a photographer, and Coralie, a 'mermaid' from the Museum of Extraordinary Things. -Trish
This charming novel is a character study of an elderly Swiss man who loves life, loves people—his wife especially—loves to walk, and loves to talk, but struggles to make a connection with his son. This is just the book to read on a rainy day, perhaps in front of a fire with a cup of cocoa. Or if you want to slow yourself down to enjoy more of your life. -Sue
The year is 2073 when a visitor comes to a very remote island. In seven stories going back, way back, in time we see a painter, vampire, Viking, and others that are connected to this island and bound in some way by an agonizing love. The writing is breathtaking and powerful art. You won't be able to put this book down or stop thinking of it. Ages 14+ -Carol
Jonathan Lethem explores the nature of art and reality in this strange but entertaining ride through the mythic island of Manhattan. When former child star Chase Insteadman meets burned out pop-culture guru Perkus Tooth, he embarks on a journey of discovery and delusion that makes us question the truth of our own story. -Tony
