Twist: An American Girl

ADELE BERTEI

£20.00 £19.00

“One of the most original, amazing stories I've ever read” Mary Gaitskill.

Nein, Nein, Nein!: One Man's Tale of Depression, Psychic Torment, and a Bus Tour of the Holocaust

Jerry Stahl

£26.95 £25.60

Talk about gallows humor—Stahl speaks to the bone-deep despair of “seeing our own reflection in the hellhouse mirror.” His razor-sharp humor will have you howling one moment, breathless the next.

The Devil's Treasure

Mary Gaitskill

£25.00 £23.75

Gaitskill's most recent is a beauty, proving once again (have you read The Mare?) how the doyenne of lit kink transcends her identity box with a compassionate brilliance that flies beyond all categorizations.

The Last Days: A memoir of faith, desire and freedom

Ali Millar

£16.99

A poetic, riveting memoir of life inside—and escape from—the cult of Jehovah's Witnesses while waiting for Armageddon in the Scottish Borders.

I Fear My Pain Interests You: A Novel

Stephanie LaCava

£9.99 £9.49

Favorite fiction story of this year so far. Another writer described LaCava’s voice here as “hard, clipped, and cool" but it's the liquid flush of the voice undulating beneath the veneer of the book’s punky mask that drew me in.

The Creative Act: A Way of Being: The Sunday Times bestseller

Rick Rubin

£27.00 £25.65

"Everyone is a creator." Rubin's treatise on the nature of art and why humanity in general, and each one of us individually, requires its inherent expression. This book should be mandatory reading for everyone. Especially those who imagine AI as a good thing.

The Undertow: Scenes from a Slow Civil War

Jeff (Dartmouth College) Sharlet

£23.99

Shartlet's book about where we're at as the American Empire waxes necrotic is an essential read. In brilliant reportage and dazzling prose, his insights into the mood of the nation will make you catch your heart with new insights about what we're living through.
