Inspired by the true World War II history of the few bookshops to survive the Blitz, The Last Bookshop in London is a timeless story of wartime loss, love and the enduring power of literature.

August 1939: London prepares for war as Hitler’s forces sweep across Europe. Grace Bennett has always dreamed of moving to the city, but the bunkers and blackout curtains that she finds on her arrival were not what she expected. And she certainly never imagined she’d wind up working at Primrose Hill, a dusty old bookshop nestled in the heart of London.

Through blackouts and air raids as the Blitz intensifies, Grace discovers the power of storytelling to unite her community in ways she never dreamed—a force that triumphs over even the darkest nights of the war.

The Hard Crowd: Essays 2000-2020

A career spanning collection of spectacular essays about politics and culture

Rachel Kushner has established herself as a master of the essay form. In The Hard Crowd, she gathers a selection of her writing from over the course of the last twenty years that addresses the most pressing political, artistic, and cultural issues of our times—and illuminates the themes and real life terrain that underpin her fiction.

In nineteen razor sharp essays, The Hard Crowd spans literary journalism, memoir, cultural criticism, and writing about art and literature, including pieces on Jeff Koons, Denis Johnson, and Marguerite Duras. Kushner takes us on a journey through a Palestinian refugee camp, an illegal motorcycle race down the Baja Peninsula, 1970s wildcat strikes in Fiat factories, her love of classic cars, and her young life in the music scene of her hometown, San Francisco. The closing, eponymous essay is her manifesto on nostalgia, doom, and writing.

These pieces, new and old, are electric, phosphorescently vivid, and wry, and they provide an opportunity to witness the evolution and range of one of our most dazzling and fearless writers.

Deadly Editions (Scottish Bookshop Mystery)

A treasure hunt through Edinburgh gives way to a search for a villain terrorizing the city in Paige Shelton's Deadly Editions, the sixth Scottish Bookshop Mystery.

Bookseller Delaney Nichols receives a mysterious cloaked visitor one evening at the Cracked Spine Bookshop. He presents to her an even perplexing note: an invitation to an exclusive treasure hunt hosted by eccentric socialite Shelaigh O'Connor. Delaney is intrigued, but also cautious: Shelaigh, while charming in person, has a reputation for her hijinks as a wealthy young woman in the '70s. She was even once suspected for the murder of a former boyfriend, though ultimately cleared of all charges.

But Delaney is enticed by the grand prize at the end of the treasure hunt: a highly valuable first edition copy of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, by Robert Louis Stevenson. The winner is also to receive the contents of Shelaigh's vast library, and an unspecified sum of cash.

The night after the first meeting of the treasure hunters, however, several homes in Edinburgh are robbed in a manner reminiscent of Shelaigh's old tricks. And when a man connected to Shelaigh is killed, suspicion builds. Except Sheilagh herself has disappeared from her home, seemingly kidnapped by the villain.

Terror mounts throughout the city as Delaney attempts to solve the mystery, while trying to stay out of the killer's clutches. For she, it seems, is his next target.

When she stumbles into the opportunity to become the assistant to Maud Dixon, a celebrated but anonymous novelist (think: Elena Ferrante), she believes that the universe is finally providing her big chance. The arrangement feels idyllic; Helen can be prickly, but she is full of pointed wisdom on both writing and living. She even invites Florence along on a research trip to Morocco, where her new novel is set. Florence has never been out of the country before; maybe, she imagines, she'll finally have something exciting to write about herself.

if she would The Walters Art Museum the Art of Ancient Greece escape the cult I don t think I ve come across a memoir where I felt so invested in seeing the author getting a happynding I highly recommend this Oh good heavens above I read this book voraciously ignoring the rest of my life completely Ruth Wariner s courage is inconceivable She grew up in a fanatical Mormon polygamist Doomsday cult in Mexico The hardships such a lame word for what she American Nietzsche endured were recounted without a single shred of self pity She shares her riveting life story from herarliest memories as a child to her life as an adult Not Art, Culture, and Cuisine enough about her current life so I m hoping for a seuelRuth s mother was totally incapable of showing her what happiness looked like she could only show her how to barely survive Her mother believed with blind faith that when you re doing what God wants you to do it will always work out for the best She told Ruth not to worry that God will always take care of us It felt to me like God could have done a better job of looking after these defenseless children Ruth later reflected about how little mom asked of the world and howven that had been too much for the world to give As a reader I too much for the world to give As a reader I not nearly as generous as Ruth about forgiving her mother s shortcomings For me she committed the unforgivable sin of choosing not to protect her children What chance did I have of being heard by the leaders of a church who believed men were in training to be Gods Women were at the mercy of men who went from one wife to the next meeting no one s needs but their own Maria Ruth s half sister was instrumental in planting the radical idea that Ruth s and her futures could possibly hold some personal choices Her grandparents were also much needed guiding lights This book made me cry and I hardly Berlioz and His Century ever cry over books I read There isnough in real life to cry over Thank heavens for the Aristotles Rhetoric epilogue as I had to know what the future held for my friend Ruth I will have to choose this book to discuss with my book club so they too can be haunted by this amazing story I like to share my dist What a fantastic book Anyone who knows my reading style knows that I m not a huge fan of memoir Honestly I think most people who have written them areither too young or and I don t think there s a good way to say this without sounding like an ass don t really have that much to say that I am interested in reading about But when I heard about The Sound of

experienced in herarly years than most of us thankfully will Charting an Empire experience in ourntire lives This is the story of being raised in a polygamist family and it is one of those stories that is so harrowing you can t believe it isn t fiction the product of someone s imagination I lost count of how many times I audibly said Jesus Christ while I was reading and I teared up several times something I haven t done since reading A Little Life What makes this book fascinating goes well beyond the voyeuristic aspects of looking at someone lse s upbringing that was so vastly different than your own but how to Wariner and her siblings this was normal life They didn t know until they started to get older and spent time with their maternal t know until they started to get older and spent time with their maternal that things weren t uite right And for living in such poverty and having so few material comforts there is much power in the simple basic things we can all relate to

Ompletely unsafe way Education for Ruth was on a day by day basis depending on how much Ruth s mother needed her that day that month that year The list of things wrong is long and there is much that is hard to stomach As soon as we got home we crammed our clothes into plastic bags and threw them into the back of the van Mom flattened the gray vinyl seats and packed them with uilts so we could lie down if we wanted She bolted out of the driveway as if she couldn t get away from that house fast nough and within a few short minutes we were on the highway headed for the Texas border I gave Meri a bottle while I lay on the uilts and looked outside the window I couldn t stop thinking about how we would get to see my cousins often They wouldn t be as far away from Grandma and Grandpa as they were
