We miss having customers in the store! However, we want our customers and staff to stay healthy and safe so are still in the process of opening safely.
While we work to open up, we're also here to meet your bookish needs! To buy new books, order through this website. If you're looking for used or rare books, browse our collection on Biblio. You can also give us a call to place an order or to check on the availability of a title.
While we remain closed, we can offer curbside pick-up or shipping services only.
We are unable to consider used book offers until after we re-open to the public.
This snappy collection of poems can be read in a single sitting and I recommend you do so over lunch. O'Hara paints lovely little portraits of domestic and city life with the tenderness of a close friend describing their day. My favorites in this collection are "Song," "Ave Maria," and "Steps."
Most well-known as one of the only novels to come out in the 1950s featuring a queer relationship wherein the lovers don't die or suddenly realize they're straight; I also recommend this because Patricia Highsmith is one of the most underrated writers of the 20th Century.
One of my all-time faves. Chaotic, surreal... This book has been called everything from post-modern to pornographic and there are excellent arguments for both. A disturbing, inspired collage of confessional poetry, gender theory, and dirty pictures.
Some critics have called Anne Carson the greatest English language writer alive today and I have yet to find an alternative. This book seamlessly blends prose, poetry, and mythology in a beautiful reimagining of the Heracles (or Hercules) myth.
Whether this is your first or millionth encounter with this collection of poetry I cannot recommend it enough. Sylvia Plath is one of the first poets I read that made me love the medium, and the one I revisit most often.
Fast, punchy magical realism. Recommend for fans of Amy Hempel, Aimee Bender, and beautiful absurdity.
