$29.99
ISBN: 9780358437673
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Mariner Books - October 25th, 2022

Yes, alright, Bo Jackson is the hero of my youth (and okay fine my adulthood too) but his story transcends my laudatory bias, I promise! Tales of Bo’s talent are that of an athletic Paul Bunyan, a sporting John Henry, a UFO armed with a Louisville slugger and shoulder pads—and you won’t tire of their telling, all the way through.

ISBN: 9780525510741

Published: Random House - September 13th, 2022

As a bookseller you get asked all the time who your favorite writers are. My list always includes David Milch. His brilliant television writing is full of humor, vulgarity, pathos, ego, and crumpled glimpses of stratified grace. It's all on display here too, in what is more a book about craft than a memoir—and one that is all the better for that priority.

The Passenger By Cormac McCarthy Cover Image
$24.00
ISBN: 9780307268990
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Knopf - October 25th, 2022

To say that McCarthy’s first novel in fifteen years is worth the wait is patently obvious, but THE PASSENGER transcends mere satiation, challenging us to think about nearly every facet of our brief time here on earth. Spiritually harrowing, intellectually ravishing, and sublimely fulfilling.

Stella Maris By Cormac McCarthy Cover Image
$26.00
ISBN: 9780307269003
Availability: Coming Soon! Pre-Order this now and we will contact you on publication date!
Published: Knopf - December 6th, 2022

You could argue that STELLA MARIS should simply have been incorporated into its companion novel, THE PASSENGER, but to me it matters not. This continued exploration of the themes, scenes, and meaning within McCarthy’s story of the Western siblings is equally stunning and just as essential to understanding these spellbinding binary stars.

Case Study By Graeme MacRae Burnet Cover Image
$17.95
ISBN: 9781771965200
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Biblioasis - November 1st, 2022

The discerning of what’s real or not, true or false, sane or insane, funny or heartbreaking—it will all fuel your curiosity throughout, but it wouldn’t work so damn well without Burnet’s tasteful touch in tying it all together. Charming, waggish, and deceptively somber all at once.

Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
This book cannot be returned.
Published: Southeast Missouri State Univ Press - September 30th, 2022

A captivating, imaginative series of vignettes stitched together to form a dream-like outline of our titular character's character. Much like one of my favorite writers, Kathryn Davis, Ramirez let's his imagery, intellect, and insight drive the book's impact, rather than relying on normative storytelling. Is that a good thing? It's a very good thing!

Liberation Day: Stories By George Saunders Cover Image

ISBN: 9780525509592
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Random House - October 18th, 2022

There are a few literary giants that by dint of their unique style (and some luck in how their surnames finish out) earn what I call an “—ian.” Orwell, Faulkner, James, Vonnegut—there’s more of course but you get it! Saundersian is for sure the only way to describe George’s heart-rending short fiction, which is among the best in the whole fuzzy free world.

Fantastic Numbers and Where to Find Them: A Cosmic Quest from Zero to Infinity By Antonio Padilla Cover Image
$30.00

Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux - July 26th, 2022

I love to read about math, and physics, and the smart people who study them, so a book like this one always hits the spot. There's endless fun to be had diving into how math shapes our universe, and Padilla deftly describes the latest twists in our ever-undulating road toward understanding it all.

The Church of Baseball: The Making of Bull Durham: Home Runs, Bad Calls, Crazy Fights, Big Swings, and a  Hit By Ron Shelton Cover Image

ISBN: 9780593319772
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Knopf - July 5th, 2022

This one is a few things—a baseball book, a how-we-made-it book, a book on screenwriting, a book on directing—but mostly it’s about how to tell a good story. One that connects, and lasts, and entertains us throughout. Aptly, the book does as good a job as the movie itself at all of the above.

The Mysteries of Harris Burdick By Chris Van Allsburg Cover Image
$18.95
ISBN: 9780395353936
Availability: Not currently on our shelves, but available to order (usually within a few days)
Published: Clarion Books - September 24th, 1984

I was clearing out some shelves at home the other day and came across this book, one of the few I’ve kept from childhood. A frisson shot through me like I was 8 again. Such fright and wonder and creative inspiration all in one place. Stories that make you want to tell your own stories, they really are the best kind.

The Twilight World: A Novel By Werner Herzog, Michael Hofmann (Translated by) Cover Image

ISBN: 9780593490266
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Penguin Press - June 14th, 2022

It makes sense that a director’s first novel would be a vivid, stirring tale meant to be finished in one sitting, and it’s no surprise either that a filmmaker of Herzog’s caliber turned out a very good first novel at that. A fascinating true story, told with concision and dignity.

Published: Doubleday - June 28th, 2022

As a great novelist can still wow you with a new collection of short stories, PRK moves similarly here, with a killer collection of his reportage at The New Yorker. Each piece stands tall right alongside EMPIRE OF PAIN and SAY NOTHING, two of the best nonfiction books of the last five years.

Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Tordotcom - June 28th, 2022

I mean who doesn't love a slick little sci-fi murder mystery to gobble up from time to time? Robson gives us a beach read with some darker tones and more meat on its bones, extrapolating current trends in surveillance, social media, gaming, and human interaction writ large.

$28.00
ISBN: 9781984879592
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Penguin Press - May 3rd, 2022

The rare account of a scientifically dubious line of inquiry that casts little to no judgment on its advocates. Knight relates the story of John Barker—and his pursuit of the strange correspondence between our minds and time—with such skill and style as to craft an almost un-categorizable book. Science, history, biography, and parapsychology all float in the enchanting ether.

Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux - May 10th, 2022

A sober and skillfull exploration of classical liberalism as it is practiced (and prodded at) in our times. Fukuyama tackles malpractice and malcontents on either side of our wide political divide, describing how we might find our way through this charged and challenging period of history.

ISBN: 9781477325131
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: University of Texas Press - May 17th, 2022

What Dan Charnas’s DILLA TIME did for another hip-hop pioneer we lost too soon, Walker does just as well here for DJ Screw: outlining a legend’s impact using their hometown’s musical history as set design and those that knew him best as cast. Heads should eat this up.

ISBN: 9781641293310
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Soho Press - June 7th, 2022

This one is a crushing combination of Leonard Gardner’s FAT CITY and Matt Bell’s SCRAPPER, with prose and dialogue as smooth and solid as its plot and purpose are gritty and gutty. (Rap song chapter heads don’t hurt either!)

Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Graywolf Press - March 1st, 2022

When it comes to contemporary fiction, I hold Davis in the highest regard. Her shadowy, meditative voice is like a painting whose eyes follow you around the room. When applied to her own life, she bends that aspect toward a gripping contemplation of grief, art, time, and place.

Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Zerogram Press - April 5th, 2022

This is both a testament to our shared lot as the boiling frogs of history and—for me—a much needed literary sermon to the choir. Erickson outlines in real time what this span of our recent past has wrought upon him and us with a fierce spirit and incredulous hilarity.

Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: MCD - February 1st, 2022

Plenty of music books are great at the “why” of a particular artist’s esteem, but Charnas does a fantastic job in giving us the “how” of Jay Dee’s lasting legacy. A must for any rap fan, DILLA TIME is a powerful reification of this preeminent Detroiter’s sui generis sonic schema.

ISBN: 9780063072107
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Harper - January 11th, 2022

An impressive and immersive take on the WWII spy novel that isn’t just good at hiding its plot turns, but crafts a palimpsest of subterfuge out of each of its dueling narrators. Sexual, cultural, national, and fraternal identities are all part of a roiling stew that simmers off into exactly my kind of page-turner.

Published: Picador - October 4th, 2022

More great stuff from Darnielle, whose third novel infuses the same eldritch rhythm as his previous two into the vicissitudes of growing up. He’s got a knack for exposing a shared, forgotten feeling inside us all—one that he limns with a singularly eerie voice.

Availability: Not currently on our shelves, but available to order (usually within a few days)
Published: Farrar, Straus and Giroux - January 11th, 2022

I loved Øyehaug's collection of short fiction KNOTS, and this is like an extended release tab of the same kind of good medicine. With wit and care and propellant insight, she takes a few puzzles of the universe and uses them to delve into the puzzles of our human experience, from the micro to the macro.

Published: New York Review Books - September 28th, 2021

With my layman's zeal for quantum physics, cosmology, and mathematics, this book's subject matter grabbed me from the start. But the real satisfaction in Labuatut's novel comes from his explorations into the terrors of war and discovery, as he outlines the serrated edges of these brilliant minds so we might dare to reach out and touch them.

Published: Kingston Imperial - December 21st, 2021

If the fork in the road led to either burning out or fading away, it’s safe to say Danny Hernandez took a beat and decided to just self-immolate instead. His is a captivating story—of clout-chasing, courtrooms, the music industry, and the streets—which Setaro relays with proven authority at a perfect pace.

Published: Harper Perennial - May 10th, 2022

An epic of the American identity as much as the single American family at its center, this debut novel is as ambitious as it is remarkable. Both the book’s titular figure and its centuries-spanning pages impel us to remember: the souls and stories and traumas of black and indigenous folk are those of our country itself.

Published: Gallery Books - October 4th, 2022

Instead of focusing on his NBA career, Carmelo tells the tale of everything that would lead him to draft day and the success that followed. It’s a touching story of family and friendship and a young man’s search for meaning—and it made me love Melo even more than I already did. Plus, D. Watkins with the assist doesn't hurt one damn bit.

Published: Twelve - October 26th, 2021

Shea Serrano has stayed ten-toes-down for us here at Carmichael’s ever since he harnessed his Twitter superpowers to help us sell more than 1,000 books in a day way back when his first book about hip-hop—THE RAP YEAR BOOK—was fresh on the shelves. Now, after forays into basketball and movies as part of his “and Other Things” series, he’s back to his rap writing roots, and we’re happy to say the results are as hilarious, informed, and debate-inciting as ever.

On Freedom: Four Songs of Care and Constraint By Maggie Nelson Cover Image

ISBN: 9781644452028
Availability: On Our Shelves in the last 24 hours. Click to see a specific store location's stock.
Published: Graywolf Press - September 6th, 2022

Maggie Nelson’s writing—from the personal to the political to the poetic—always manages to perform brilliant acts of synthesis. Sometimes an array of emotions come together, at others, rhetorical variations crash into a larger whole. Regardless, the breadth of her knowledge and expert tact help churn together consensus thought and her own intellectual explorations to form something that wasn’t there before. These thoughts on freedom, and how much that word and idea and feeling can move before we ever have a chance to find its true shape, are another example of Nelson’s undeniable prowess and a concentrated description of our most raggedly human aspects.

Published: Dover Publications - July 1st, 1985

I know right? Why would you read a science book from freaking 1966? Well, because most of our quantum knowledge was all gained in this amazing stretch of history, and Gamow is the OG when it comes to explaining science with wit and humor (and cartoons!).

Published: Back Bay Books - June 21st, 2022

I'm going to get a little interdisciplinary here and describe this one as a KILL BILL-type story with a DEADWOOD vibe that moves with the momentum of a train Butch and Sundance might have robbed. Throw in a solemn exploration of the souls of both men and nations, and you’ve got yourself a damn fine debut novel.

THE BRAND IS STRONG. I'll be honest I was a little skeptical that Desus and the Kid could make the transition to the written word, but it turns out that I had nothing at all to worry about. I was laughing out loud from page one, and can't recommend this highly enough for fans of the world's most dangerous podcast and the number one show in late night.

Using her personal history in Texas alongside her scholarly acumen, Gordon-Reed examines both the state and our nation alike with a practiced and pointed mien. These essays describe what creates our shifting concept of America, but insist we first and foremost remember what that idea means to a people united in their former bondage.

Few authors can make a true tale cook quite like PRK, and with a story like the Sackler Family’s, things are all the more enthralling.

Anyone who says they don’t like poetry probably hasn’t read Forrest Gander, whose pristine verse always unlocks some old trunk inside me I thought I’d lost the key to. His starting point here is the lichen, which he explains, but what’s impossible to explain is how far and wide he'll move your spirit from that lovely little natural launchpad.

The front cover of THE SILENCE says that it's a novel, but really it's not. It's a short story dressed up like a novel, but who really cares? It's brilliant. And prescient. And of-the-now too. It's a story of connection and disconnection, and how close the two have become. It's another 100 pages or so inside the DeLillo-verse, and we likely don't have many of those left, so please, cherish them like I do.

Can you describe a book set during the Thirty Years' War as a delight? Well hell, I'm gonna, because this book's tone and tenor somehow make enjoyable a series of dark vignettes that twist politics, religion, fear, and epistemology around the origin story of one of the world's legendary tricksters. Bloody fun, this one.

Goldsberry is one of the smartest guys talking NBA hoops, and this book ties together all of what makes his writing great: the data, the stats, the trademark graphics—and just the right amount of acid wit. He explains how the NBA arrived at the three-chucking, five-out, wide-open state that it's in right now, and will make you a smarter fan, page after vivid page.

A loose retelling of the tale of Theseus, OREO is an overlooked classic now back in print after 40 years. It is a wickedly funny look at race, culture, and betweenness—even if it's sometimes hard to tell what truly lay on either side.
