5 Apr 2011

A big week for books with a great variety of new titles coming out. Don't forget that poetry's 20% off, too, and that includes most special orders.






 Horoscopes for the Dead by Billy Collins

Billy Collins is widely acknowledged as a prominent player at the table of modern American poetry. And in this new collection, "Horoscopes for the Dead," the verbal gifts that earned him the title "America's most popular poet" are on full display. The poems here cover the usual but everlasting themes of love and loss, life and death, youth and aging, solitude and union.







 Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention by Manning Marable

Of the great figures in 20th-century American history perhaps none is more complex and controversial than Malcolm X. Marable's new biography of Malcolm is a stunning achievement. Years in the making, this is the definitive biography of the legendary black activist. 








 Heads You Loseby Lisa Lutz and David Hayward

Lutz, the "New York Times"-bestselling author of the Spellman comedic crime novels, conspires with--or should we say "against"--co-author Hayward to write an original and hilarious tag-team crime novel.










 Please Look After Mom by Kyung-sook Shin

A million-plus-copy bestseller in South Korea and poised to become an international sensation, "Please Look After Mom" is the stunning, deeply moving story of a family's search for their mother, and of the desires, heartaches, and secrets they discover she harbored within.





 The Love of My Youth by Mary Gordon

Beloved author Gorden pens a beautifully choreographed novel about first lovers meeting again after more than 30 years, walking the streets of Rome and reimmersing themselves in their lost past.
