Original thoughts on books and reading by the authors you know and love.

  • Jane Urquhart’s newest novel is The Night Stages, an elegiac work of unusual depth. She was kind enough to spend some time indoors from the beautiful Canadian summer to answer a few questions about her life and love of reading.

  • A novel worthy of Dickens himself, Death and Mr. Pickwick is a rollicking ride that unlocks a provocative publishing mystery. We hope that the following discussion topics will enrich your reading group’s experience.

  • Whether these books are meant for the beach, the book club, or the bathtub, these writers will knock your socks off. We will be giving away five sets of five novels from the cream of our crop, and our winners can spend the summer in the capable hands of Katherine Taylor, Robyn Cadwallader, Lisa Gornick, Laura van den Berg, and Sophie McManus.

  • “You uncover a place in the scent of a dish, more absolutely than in a thousand words.”

    Jason Goodwin

  • “One day a tiger cub will crawl out of my Amazon box."

    Heather O'Neill

  • “Disable one-click before consuming alcohol. You know what I mean. Oh, yes, you do.”

    Louise Doughty

  • “All my personal writing goes back to Montaigne. ”

    Phyllis Rose

  • “Music came to me in a spotty, haphazard and completely disjointed way, and it wasn’t until I started writing a novel that begins in 1966, that I found I had suddenly tapped into one of the richest veins in American music.”
