Available now at Prince Books are two new products our customers have been asking about.

We're pleased to once again carry a fine selection of Moleskine journals, including the new Red Classic notebook and the Moleskine Passions line of do-it-yourself journals. Our favorite is the Book journal, perfect for organizing and recording your literary thoughts.

The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris
by David McCullough

The Greater Journey is the enthralling, inspiring--and until now, untold--story of the adventurous American artists, writers, doctors, politicians, architects, and others of high aspiration who set off for Paris in the years between 1830 and 1900, ambitious to excel in their work. After risking the hazardous journey across the Atlantic, these Americans embarked on a greater journey in the City of Light. Most had never left home, never experienced a different culture. None had any guarantee of success. That they achieved so much for themselves and their country profoundly altered American history.





2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America by Albert Brooks

Comedian and filmmaker Brooks welcomes the reader to the year 2030 in his smart and surprisingly serious debut. Cancer has been cured, global warming is an acknowledged reality, people have robot companions, and the president is a Jew -- and oy vey does he have his hands full with an earthquake-leveled Los Angeles and a growing movement by the young to exterminate the elderly.



A Perfect Waiter by Alain Claude Sulzer

What would you do if the lover you spurned 30 years ago and hadn't heard from since suddenly sent a letter demanding your help, even insisting that you plead his case before the very man who stole him from you? This is the dilemma facing Erneste, who has spent those intervening decades holed up in the remote Swiss resort town in which he lost his love, consoling (or punishing) himself by becoming the kind of waiter so perfect you barely notice he's there. In his first novel to be published in English, Sulzer creates a refined, operatic atmosphere in which Erneste's past and present mingle like air and fog.




Blind Allegiance to Sarah Palin by Frank Bailey
