Shelf Talkers

Reviews from around the store:

All of Us, by Raymond Carver

The short story master was also a brilliant poet. Carver wrote about alcoholism, fishing, the past, and looking out of windows (among other topics) with such beauty. His poetry cuts through with the precision of a razor. Amazing stuff.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Although there is humor, The Guernsey is not the frivolous novel the title implies but all about true-to-self, courageous choices and sticking together in adversity--a deeper, wider Jane Austen.
