This is your sign to set sail. Fear not! This is a book written for the every-person by a sailor-turned-farmer about “mongrels, renegades, and castaways” and nature’s overpowering intensity. Uniquely placed as the Grand-Daddy of “The Great American Novel” it earns that title with delightful, jaw-dropping prose that stuns with its applicability to modern America. Learn how to be a Nantucket whaler from this qualifiable manual, or simply skip those middle chapters. The question remains: CLAM OR COD?
"A secret's worth depends on the people from whom it must be kept." I'll share mine with you: savor this book. Set in Barcelona 1945, The Shadow of the Wind is gothic fiction meets noir mystery for sweltering summer days and misty lamplit evenings. One such evening, young Daniel Sempere visits a secret labyrinthine library hidden below the cobblestones of Barcelona and his life is changed forever. I adore Carlos Ruiz Zafon. From his lush descriptions that bring Barcelona to life, to his motley crew of characters that have stayed close to my heart for over a decade, this book is easily the one I recommend to anyone I meet. Lovingly translated by Lucia Graves, La Sombra del Viento is also available in its original Spanish.
