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

  • In A Manual for Cleaning Women, Berlin crafts miracles from the everyday, uncovering moments of grace in the Laundromats and halfway houses of the American Southwest, in the homes of the Bay Area upper class, among switchboard operators and struggling mothers, hitchhikers and bad Christians.

  • We loved hearing from professional voiceover actor James Sie about the experience of recording the audio book of his debut novel, Still Life Las Vegas, and are just as excited today to be able to share these stories from his life in reading! If you’ve been looking for recommendations, James has you covered.

  • The Last Love Song by Tracy Daugherty is an exciting new entry on the life and letters of Joan Didion, a writer celebrated as one of the foremost voices of her generation.

  • “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. ”

  • “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.”
