Lapvona

by Ottessa Moshfegh

Taking us into the top five is a blindingly original historical fantasy from Ottessa Moshfegh.  As Moshfegh's work tends to be, this book is witty, brutal, and delightfully strange as it follows the story of a motherless shepherd boy and the chaos that churns around him.

#1

Horse

by Geraldine Brooks

Book cover

Pulitzer Prize winner Geraldine Brooks has done it again!

Back in January, we named Horse as one of our most anticipated books of the year, so we're pleased to see it take the number one spot.  Sweeping yet intimate, Horse is a breathtaking novel about race, art, and the century-spanning ripples left by a record-setting racehorse, his groom, and a painter.  Thoroughly resarched and expertly crafted, this is, in our opinion, not a book to be missed.  And it seems that our customers agree!
