New and Featured Books for 12/27/11:

Posted on

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…

FICTION:

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.

Novels And Stories, 1920 – 1922 by F. Scott Fitzgerald
