Just arrived! The Carleton Bookstore is now taking orders for A Beacon So Bright: The Life of Laurence McKinley Gould.
Imaginative and meticulously researched, this enchanting debut novel from Helene Wecker is, in reality, a work of historical fiction. Set primarily in turn-of-the-century Manhattan, it deliberately details the immigrant experience--the wonders and hardships of being in a new country and the discoveries, triumphs, and failures that follow--while bringing the city itself to life with such passion that New York of yore seems like a magical land. Beyond reality, however, The Golem and the Jinni, as the title implies, is also a fantastic work of fantasy.
Each month, the Carleton Bookstore staff hand selects twelve recommended titles and discounts each of them 25% off of the publisher's list price. This month's edition of our Browser's Dozen is now available online!
