Staff Picks

Here, There and Everywhere: My Life Recording the Music of the Beatles
STAFF PICK | January

Geoff Emerick

“ Geoff Emerick was not only present at EMI Studios during the entire Beatles recordings there, but was directly responsible for the sound on some of their most enduring songs, notably on Revolver (it was Emerick's idea to record Lennon's vocal through a Leslie speaker on ‘Tomorrow Never Knows‘), Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road. A most perfect companion to the new Glyn Johns memoir, Sound Man. ”

The Book of Disquiet
STAFF PICK | January

Fernando Pessoa

“ Embrace being an outcast. Embrace social isolation. Embrace your disquietude with fellow rebel and literary genius, Fernando Pessoa. (And you'll laugh along the way! You'll also be very amazed.) ”
Lauren
The Seven Ages
STAFF PICK | January

Louise Glück

“ One of the most beautiful and psychological poetry collections I have ever read. ”
Lauren
The White Castle
STAFF PICK | December

Orhan Pamuk

“ Turkey is devouring Pamuk's new novel as we speak. For those of us not fluent in Turkish, though, maybe it's time to revisit the novels that won him a Nobel Prize. My Name Is Red, The Black Book, and The White Castle are vastly different masterpieces in the vain of Borges, Faulkner, and Proust. Politics aside, this is one of the most diverse and complicated oeuvres of our time. ”

How to Escape from a Leper Colony
STAFF PICK | December

Tiphanie Yanique

“ While in cold NYC, you can be transported to the Caribbean by reading this amazing story collection. Yanique's writing is as lush and lyrical as the Islands themselves. ”
Mary
The New Yorker Stories
STAFF PICK | December

Ann Beattie

“ Ann Beattie's fiction started appearing in the New Yorker in the early seventies, and she published nearly fifty masterful stories in the magazine over four decades. You might want to ration these carefully, but there's also enough here to allow for the occasional binge. ”

STAFF PICK | December

Maurice Sendak

“ "In January it's so nice while slipping on the sliding ice to sip hot chicken soup with rice...". This little book for little hands features twelve sweet short poems, one for each month, complemented by Sendak's classic drawings. ”

Jack Finney

“ Perhaps the most romantic New York story ever written. Certainly a perfect read for wintery afternoons and evenings. ”
